Roger Leon Belch, 88, of Camden, Maine, died peacefully at home on 2/2/22 after an eighteen-year battle with cancer. Born in Windsor, CT, Roger was an Air Force Veteran who owned & operated a successful plumbing & heating business. He retired to Beverly Hills, FL, and then moved to Maine in 2017 with his wife, daughter, and son in law to continue his cancer fight.
Roger will be remembered for his vibrant personality and selflessness towards those in need. He was an avid beekeeper, builder, and lover of lobster. Throughout his cancer journey, Roger defied medical odds with an unbreakable spirit. His quick wit and humor never dimmed, inciting laughter in all those around him. Roger inspired many with his altruistic outlook on life and unwavering devotion to his family.
He is survived by his loving wife, Margaret (Shanahan) Belch of 62 years; his 3 children, Deborah Lyon, Robert Belch, and Brian Edwards; their spouses; and 11 grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at a future date. His family would like to thank ME Health Hospice & Pen Bay Cancer Care for their wonderful care and support. Memories and condolences may be shared on his tribute wall.
