Carrol James “Jim” Roach


Carrol James “Jim” Roach went home to be with his Heavenly Father on May 27, 2020 after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Jim was born on November 14, 1939 to R.J. & Oleta (Schmidt) Roach in Buda, Texas. Jim married Doris Buehring on March 10, 1966 and a few years later they moved to Uhland, Texas, where Jim started his welding business. He operated Uhland Welding for over 40 years.
Jim and Doris raised their children, Gregory and Jeanine, in Uhland and lived there until their retirement years called them to Niederwald, Texas. Jim still welded occasionally but he truly enjoyed spending his retirement with family, conversing with friends and neighbors and watching NASCAR. He especially loved spending time with his grandchildren. He took a great amount of pride in teaching his two grandsons how to weld.
Jim is preceded in death by his parents and his older sister Betty Braune. He is survived by his wife Doris; son, Gregory; daughter, Jeanine Dailey and husband Brian; sisters, Mary Jo Crawford and Phyllis Patterson; 5 grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
