Obituary for Gregory Alvin Roush

Gregory Alvin Roush, 61, died Monday morning, April 12, 2021 at his residence in Richwood, Kentucky with his fiancé by his side. Greg was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and was the youngest child of Alvin and Kathryn Roush. Greg was a former employee of Maxim Crane Works, L.P. in Wilder, Kentucky where he held the position of Logistics Manager until his retirement. He graduated from Lloyd Memorial High School and attended college at Northern Kentucky University, and proudly served his country at the age of 17 years old in the U.S. Army from April 27, 1977-April 1980 and was stationed in Germany. He was a very proud American Veteran. Greg entered the Army a rebellious teen and came out of the Army a totally different person. He grew up while he was in Germany. Many times Greg showed his generosity and kindness to all that knew him. In particular to fellow veterans. On different occasions he would do kind things as buy a veteran’s groceries while in line at the grocery. He gave a coffee shop in the St. Elizabeth Hospital building where he was receiving medical care weekly money to buy coffee for fellow veterans until the money ran out. He would drive to the US Army Recruiting office in Florence every few months and leave a $100 bill for them to buy themselves breakfast, lunch or coffee. He gave money to single, struggling women to buy their children Christmas toys. The list of his good deeds goes on…too many to even mention, but you get the picture… There are not enough adjectives in the dictionary to describe what a fine man Greg was. Words cannot even begin to describe him… Greg enjoyed life to the fullest in his younger years. You could easily refer to him as always being the life of the party. In earlier years, Greg was very involved in the motorcycle community and rode in many motorcycle riding events raising money for charities, such as the Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky and Holly Hill Child & Family Solutions. Greg was one of the founding members of the KMRO-Motorcycle Riders Organization of Kentucky, Inc., and at one time he served as the Vice Director of the Kentucky Motorcycle Association/K.B.A., Inc. He loved his family dearly. He rarely complained of the fact that he had to take dialysis three times a week for 4 hours at a time for the past few years. He had a faithful, very devoted friend, Patricia “Bubba” Carrier who took him to these treatments and to any medical appointments that he had. I have no doubt that she was his best friend. She took care of anything that he needed and never complained. One of his proudest moments was the birth of his first grandchild, Gunner Baker, currently 2 years old. His face lit up when his grandson entered the room. I have no doubt that looking at Gunner reminded him of himself and his son Joshua. The birth of his grandson Gunner gave Greg determination to keep fighting the fight, even though he had very little fight left in his body. He gave it his all to the very end. Survivors include his fiancé, Michelle Cupp, his brother Michael F. Roush (Roxann) of Elsmere, Kentucky, and his son Joshua A. Baker (Jessica) of Burlington, Kentucky. He is survived by his nephew, Michael Roush, Jr. (Ashley) of Dayton, Ohio and three grandchildren, Gunner Baker, Brooke Chaney and Jesse “Wyatt” Chaney. In addition to his family, he had a multitude of very dear friends. Greg never met a stranger. Visitation services will be held Monday, April 19, 2021 at Stith Funeral Home, 7500 U.S. Highway 42, Florence, Kentucky, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. The funeral will be held on Tuesday, April 20 at 10:30 a.m. with burial at the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery North, 205 Eibeck Lane, Williamstown, Kentucky. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the American Heart Association or the United States Department of Veteran’s Affairs, Cincinnati, Ohio or at a branch of the VA located in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky where he received services. Online condolences and memories may be shared with the family at www.stithfuneralhomes.com.
