Memories Timeline


  1. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Dr. Roush was an outstanding man, and he sure helped me when I needed it. Love Mike Chorak

  2. Poppa Bill I will see you on the flipside when it’s my turn. Thank you for being the other Dad in my life.

    If you fail to see the gift you are standing upon, unwrapping the present serves no purpose.

  3. To My Uncle Bill,
    Thanks for always making me feel like I could do anything. Life will not be the same without you here.
    All My Love,

  4. I met Bill for but a brief moment and am grateful to have had the opportunity. Bless you all and may God put His arms around you.

  5. I have fond memories of Dr.Roush when Tom and I were buddies in school. I always was made to feel welcome at the Roush home and enjoyed the upbeat feelings and thoughts that seemed to be there everytime I visited. Dr. Roush was a man to be respected and yet, the twinkle in his eye and warm friendly greetings made a person immediately comfortable. My condolences to his family.

  6. My condolences to the family of Bill Roush. He helped me through some severe health problems long ago and was my good friend and I shall miss him.

  7. On behalf of myself, Russell Shrout, Owen Shrout, Virgie Shrout and her family, I would like to extend our very sincere sympathy. We were all very sad to hear that Dr. Roush had passed away. He was a very special man. Virgie said “not only was he a good chiropractic, but he was also a good friend”. Our sympathy goes out to Sharon, Kaye, and all his family. Sheryl Hanisch and family, Virgie Shrout and family

  8. We have many memories of Bill, at the airport and in Civil Air Patrol, as well as the fact that he got Joan back on her feet and kept her there without surgery.

  9. My father had a love-hate relationship with organized religion and with organized medicine. As children, he treated us with home remedies whenever he could. For his own low back pain and for the nervous tic of my shoulder and neck, Dr. Roush was consulted and was 100% effective. To my father’s dismay, of course, I left home intending to become a preacher and ended up a member of organized medicine, as a gynecologic surgeon. Even though he viewed both choices with suspicion, I think my father eventually came to accept my career. I frequently told patients of my successful experiences with chiropractic medicine and always remembered Dr. Roush as a kind, compassionate healer. I hope patients remember me as I remember him. He was a very special guy.

  10. Poppa, We all know how dear you are to our hearts. Thank you for touching our lives with so much love and understanding.
