Obituary of Vincent Thomas Roche

Vincent Thomas Roche, 67, passed away on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at home. He was born in Newark and was a lifelong resident of Brick. He worked as an irrigation and plumbing specialist at L & H Plumbing for over 25 years. Vinnie loved traveling with his wife, Lois. Jamaica was their favorite travel destination. Vinnie was always busy taking care of things around the house and yard, and spending time with family and friends, especially his new granddaughter, Brielle.  He was always the life of the party and his sons’ friends affectionately called him Vin-Man. His Father’s Day bbq’s were legendary. In his well-earned retirement, you could usually find Vinnie enjoying his time on the golf course or watching the pros on TV.
