Claude Allen Roe, 76, of Sidney, passed away at 9:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 28, 2012, at the Fair Haven Shelby County Home.

He was born in Smythe County, Va., on April 8, 1936, the son of the late Roy and Margie Goff Roe. He was preceded in death by one sister, Virginia Puckett, and five brothers, Carl, Charles, Thomas, Melvin and Johnny Roe.

On Dec. 26, 1958, he married Evelyn Janet Rickert, who survives along with two daughters, Teresa (Bruce) Rose of Quincy and Catherine Ashton of Sidney; three brothers, Robert and Lonnie Roe, both of Sidney, and Howard Roe of Saltville, Va.; three sisters, Sylvia (Mike) Puckett and Elizabeth Terry, both of Saltville, Va., and Roberta Dowell of Culpepper, Va.; five grandchildren, Ryan (Rebekah) Rose, Adam (Rhiannon) Rose, Eric (Lacey) Ashton, Amanda Ashton and Chelsey Favors; and five great-grandchildren, Zane and Lillian Rose, Elijah and Tyler Ashton, and Lukas Holthaus.

Mr. Roe retired from the Copeland Corporation as a machinist after 43 years of service.

He was a member of the Sidney Eagles and the Lakeview Moose Lodge.

Claude enjoyed spending time in his garden. He loved his two pugs, Bubba and Baby, but most of all he loved his family, who will miss him greatly.
