Obituary

Donald Sam Roberts, 80, lost his 61 year struggle with cancer on June 11, 2020. He was a kind, conscious, fun loving man who felt everyday was a blessing. He loved God, his wife, and his family. He never knew a stranger and cherished his many friends.

He was a lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns and Indians; was a proud veteran of the USAF (SAC); enjoyed hunting, fishing, and bowling; and was an avid history buff. Above all, he enjoyed traveling, especially on cruises and RVing.

He was proud to belong to JrOUAM Reliable 181 and Belleview Masonic Lodge 95. He was a long time member and later friend of the Vine Fellowship and member of Weirsdale Presbyterian Church.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Dora Roberts; favorite aunt Hulda Huff; and brother-in-law Ed Drake.

He is survived by his devoted wife Alberta “Birdie” of 56 years; sons Donald, Jr., (Caroline) and David (Midori); daughter Nicole (Chuck) Greer; granddaughters Cassandra, Danielle, and Cameron; and sister Glenna.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, June 26, at 10:00 am, at Weirsdale Presbyterian Church, followed by a Masonic ceremony.  Don will privately be placed in Florida National Cemetery at Bushnell, FL. Masks are mandatory at the church. Donations may be made to Community of Gratitude (food cupboard) or Hospice of Marion.

    Len and I extend our sympathy to Birdie and family. Don was a wonderful neighbor, always with a smile and always interested in others. You could always see and feel the love between Don and Birdie.. . what a lovely sweet couple. They were a great example to others and so loved by those they touched in the Stonecrest Community. Don, you will be missed. Rest In Peace, dear friend.
