Bo was born December 5, 1953 in Springfield to the late Joseph and Helen Link Roath. He was retired from Logan Aluminum, where he worked in maintenance. Bo loved antique cars and was especially proud of his 1959 Corvette. He lived his life for his family, especially his children and grandchildren. He was always there for his siblings and his neighbors. He might not give you the shirt off his back, but he would certainly buy you a shirt to wear. Bo was a friend to all that knew him.

Bo is survived by his wife of 44 years: Carolyn Byrd Roath of Springfield, his son and daughter-in-law: Gregory and Amanda Roath of Shreveport, LA, his daughter: Amanda “Mandy” Goodwin of Springfield, his grandchildren: Dane Blake DeShane, Brooklyn Denise Carroll, Carson Gregory Roath, and Noah Gavin Roath, his brothers and sisters-in-law: Pete and Jennie Roath of Springfield, Andy and Denise Roath of Adairville, KY, Sanford “Beno” and Kim Roath of Springfield, his sisters and brothers-in-law: Connie and Ray Davidson of Brentwood, Janice Pinkleton of Springfield, Jennifer and David Simpson of Portland.
