We mournfully announce the passing of Gavin Lane Roach, 44, of Norman, OK.
Gavin was born to Leo and Zelma (Warrior) Roach on April 3rd, 1978 and was a member of both the Cherokee Nation and Ponca Nation of Oklahoma.

Gavin was an athlete most of his life and loved competition. He spent many weekends challenging his friends and family to a game of golf, basketball, tennis, or to catch the biggest fish in all of Lake Eufala. He worked hard to earn a black belt in Taekwondo as a child and then excelled at running track & playing football at Westmoore High School. Sooner born and Sooner bred, Gavin attended the University of Oklahoma and was a lifelong fan of all their sports teams. He married the love of his life, Chasity, on October 25th, 2008 and they started their life together in Norman, OK. On February 3rd, 2012, they welcomed twin boys, Gabriel & Gadriel, and their little family was complete. Gavin loved being a father & it gave him a chance to share his love of toys, video games, and sports with his mini-me’s. Unfortunately, his health worsened in the past few years & Chasity, along with his dad & sisters, did their best to provide care and comfort for him. He passed away peacefully in his sleep on June 9th, 2022.
