Myles Roche

November 23, 2005 — March 30, 2021

Myles Patrick Roche, 15, of Bryn Mawr, PA passed away on March 30, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.

He was the beloved son of Ciarán Paul Roche and Margaret M. O’Sullivan; loving brother of Riley Roche; dear grandson of Dorrie (née Potts) and the late John Roche, and the late Michael and Kathleen (née Kelly) O’Sullivan. Also survived by many, many loving aunts, uncles and cousins, both here in America and Ireland, England and beyond.

Myles Roche was an extraordinary child. He was exceedingly kind, decent, witty, unassuming and open to big adventures from an early age. He cherished his friendships with the “lads” at Friends Central School and would give anything to help others in need. Above all, Myles maintained special and distinctly unique relationships with his Dad, Mom and beloved brother, Riley. He knew us all so well, accepted us for who we were and inspired us to be better. Myles was quite simply one of the most perfect humans that we ever met and we are so grateful to have had an amazing fifteen year run with this loving, old soul.

Classmates, Relatives and those connected to Myles and his family members are invited to a public Viewing 6:00-8:00 PM, Monday, April 5, 2021 at The Donohue Funeral Home, 1627 West Chester Pike, West Chester, PA 19382, 610-431-9000.
