To the Editor:

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of longtime attorney and former state legislator T. Anderson “Andy” Roach of Canton after his passing on March 4 at the age of 96.

A member of the Georgia Bar since 1950, Mr. Roach maintained a general law practice in Canton for more than a half-century. He also served the community as a member of the Georgia House of Representatives for 10 years and the State Senate for two years; his profession as president of the Canton Bar Association and Blue Ridge Bar Association; and his country as a Bronze Star-decorated Army veteran of World War II.

Andy Roach will be missed and fondly remembered by his fellow members of the legal community. We appreciate his dedication and the many contributions he made through his service to the public and the justice system.  

Dawn M. Jones
2020-21 President, State Bar of Georgia
