Joseph “Joe” Anthony Roan died at his home on June 8, 2018. The shocking diagnosis gave Joe only one month to battle with the villainous criminal named pancreatic cancer who has plagued our society for far too long. The Lord showed His hand of mercy in which Joe was spared the captivity of endless pain and suffering.
Joe was born on a navy base in Kenitra, Morocco on December 5, 1958. At the young age of 14, Joe ventured out into the world on his own learning from the school of life and later obtained his GED. Joe’s life reflected the true meaning of honesty, integrity, hard work, love of family and giving a mountain load of generosity.
Joe spent most of his years in the south. He married Janet Powers and to this union two wonderful sons were born; Tony and Jamey. They endured the loss of their beloved son Tony at the early age of 23.
On January 2003, Joe and Becki Jo Perkins were united in marriage which also included a son Joshua and daughter Mikayla.
The first few years of their marriage were spent in Wynne, Arkansas while Joe was a traveling Construction Superintendent for various companies throughout the southern and western states.
In the year 2008 the family moved to Sidney, MT in the dead of winter which was quite a cultural shock for someone who basically only knew the rules for surviving tornadoes. Joe was hired on by Kringen Construction as Project manager and from that day forward acquired a brand-new family. This crucial decision Joe made for his family would ultimately be known as his wisest, for this is where he chose to put down his roots and call this place of Sidney, MT home.
Surviving him are: his wife, Becki Jo Roan, Savage, MT; his sons, Jamey (Leah) Roan, Earle, AR and Joshua Holley, Eugene, OR; his daughter, Mikayla Holley, Savage, MT; his brothers, David Roan, North Carolina and Charles Roan, Tennessee; his sisters, Sandra Separk and Flo Giles, both of North Carolina.
He was preceded in death by, his parents, Charles Roan and Joe Ann Lingenfelter; his son, Joseph Anthony “Tony” Roan; his sisters, Belinda Roan, and Debbie Roan; and his brother, William Roan.
