He was fond of all animals; turtles and penguins especially made him smile. In recent years, he became active in Young Life Youth Group, always looking forward to the weekly groups and summer retreats. Above all, he valued his friends, who remember his courageous individuality, loyalty, beautiful smile.

He is survived by parents Shannan and John Roberts, brother Mason Roberts, grandparents Dan and Beatrice Saunders, grandparents Byron and Sylvia Roberts, and a large extended family.
