Mickey Roache: 1936-2018

Francis "Mickey" Roache, the Suffolk County Register of Deeds from 2002 until 2016, died Monday at age 82. A Boston native, Roache is best known for his service as Police Commissioner of Boston from 1985 to 1993. After a career as a Boston Police Officer, Roache ran unsuccessfully for mayor in 1993 but was elected to the Boston City Council in 1995. He served as a councilor until 2002 when he was elected Register of Deeds where he succeeded Paul Tierney who had died in office. Roache retired from the registry in 2016 and was succeeded by Stephen Murphy. After graduating from high school, Roache served several years in the United States Marine Corps.

His accomplishments as Police Commissioner and as an at-large City Councilor were the subject of a recent story in the Boston Globe.
