Jason D. Roark
September 17, 1974 ‒ November 26, 2019
Mount Gilead, Ohio
Jason D. Roark, age 45, of Mount Gilead, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, November 26, 2019, while on a job site as a trim carpenter.
He was born on September 17, 1974 in Marion, OH, the son of Tina G. Deyo.
As a skilled laborer, Jason was self-employed as a trim carpenter and recently enjoyed working for Price Carpentry.
Jason always lived for the moment. He had the biggest heart for those around him. He could never tell someone “no I can’t”, even if it meant his day would be more difficult. Always wanting to visit a friend or neighbor, he often would end up offering to lend a hand with an odd job or by running them somewhere as he was known to be on the go a lot. Jason also loved entertaining the neighborhood kids who he adored.
His own family meant the world to him and will be forever remembered as Goofy Uncle Jay. Uncle Jay loved to tease his niece Kara just to hear her giggle. Always wanting to lecture his nephews Luke and Chase about life and how not to make dumb choices “like me” he would say, because somehow, he was known to find trouble a time or two.
Jason was an avid lover of most all types of music; excluding county and his annoying little sisters pop music when they were kids. He had a special love of his heavy metal music which he always played while he worked.
He is survived by his mother, Tina Deyo of Mount Gilead; his father Ed Rogers of Florida; sister (sissy), Angie (Matt) Wenger of Fredericktown; nieces and nephews: Paxton (Cody), Luke, Chase, Kara, Megan, Darvin, Story, and Donald; lifelong friend, Lil “G”; extended family member, Stan Cochran; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, along with many bonus siblings.
Jason was preceded in death by his step mother, Rhonda Rogers; and a brother, Neil Collins.
His family will greet friends from 3 to 6 PM, Monday December 2, 2019, at the Snyder Funeral Home, Craven Chapel. (67 N. Main St., Mount Gilead, OH43338) A service to celebrate his life will follow at 6PM with Celebrant Galen McLeod officiating.
If desired, memorial contributions may be made to the family to assist with final expenses.
