Victim of BP oil rig explosion.
Shane Michael Roshto, 22, of Liberty, Miss., died Tuesday, April 20, 2010, in an offshore oil rig explosion.
Visitation was at Bethel Baptist Church in Liberty Wednesday, April 28, from 3 p.m. until memorial service at 6 p.m. with the Rev. Dusty Rhodes officiating.
Mr. Roshto was born in Baton Rouge. His family moved to Liberty in 1999. He was a great husband and father. He never met a stranger and befriended everyone. He was an inspiration to his friends and family. Mr. Roshto loved his job. He was ambitious and had a strong work ethic. Even after over three years working on the rig, his co-workers tended to "baby" him because of his young age.
Blaine Michael, his 3-year-old son, was his dad's shadow. Like his father, Blaine developed a love of the outdoors at an early age. Mr. Roshto wrote two dates - his wedding day and his son's birthday - inside of his hard hat. He referred to these dates when he was having a bad day. He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Verna Mae Jordan; grandfather, Alfred Roshto; and uncles, Kyle Jordan and Fred Roshto. Survivors include his wife, Natalie; son, Blaine Michael; mother, Denise, and stepfather, Bobby Arnold, of Meadville; father and stepmother, Ronnie, Debbie Roshto, of Denham Springs; sister and brother-in-law, Diana and Ed Evans, Greensburg; nephews, Jayce Walker and Wyatt Evans, both of Greensburg; brother and sister-in-law, Rusty and Allison Roshto, Walker; niece and nephew, Lani and Kade, both of Walker; stepsister, Andrea Arnold, of Franklin County; maternal grandfather, Walter "Jack" Jordan, of Clinton; paternal grandmother, Eula Mae Roshto Gremillion, of Brusly; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Lyn and Mike Gurney, of Liberty; and two brothers-in-law, Josh and Braeden Gurney, both of Liberty. Honorary pallbearers are Paul Johnson, his rig manager, Ron Arnold, co-worker and friends, James Hayes, Kyle Marshall, Dale Floyd and Bobby Hollingsworth.
