He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Jeanette Roberts; son, Robert Eugene (Sabrina) Roberts, Jr.; brother, Leonard (Lynda) Roberts; sisters, Patricia Ann Kittle and Margaret (Fred) Browning; grandchildren, Jay Christopher Roberts and Mary Kathryn Roberts, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Visitation will also be held on Wednesday, May 18, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.  A funeral service will follow at 1 p.m. in the chapel.

 

The family would like to give special thanks to the employees at Roberts & Sons, especially George Hagood, Barry Stroup and Hong Chov.  They all were a part of his team.
