Roe made the finest whiskey in North Georgia until he was 32 years old. He drove a truck for a living and drove over a million miles.

Roe was of the Baptist faith, and he loved the Lord and his family. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, watching westerns and listening to Gospel Music.

Roe had a lot of integrity, was honorable, respectful, and hard working. He will be terribly missed by his son, Andy, who was his full-time caregiver and best friend.

Roe was proceeded in death by his father, Willie Wilson, mother, Ollie Wilson, brothers, Bill Wilson, George Wilson, Jimmy Wilson, sister, Dorothy Faye (Sue) Thurmond, and loving companion, Weasel.
