As most of you know by now, Dick Roche passed away early Wednesday morning at Oak Hills HS.  Dick was a friend of many within the wrestling community. It is difficult to send this out to the membership because Dick was a giant in the sport of wrestling, contributing as a wrestler, coach, and official.  Dick is in almost every Hall of Fame there is in wrestling....and as great as that is, he was even a greater father, husband and friend.  We will all miss seeing Dick at matches, our meetings and at school, but he will not be forgotten to his friends, fellow officials and coaches.  Dick was a man of integrity and a man of his word and an example to all.

Arrangements for Coach Roche.
