It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of George Roberts Jr. who passed away on Saturday morning, December 23, 2023.
Born on November 15, 1937 in Caswell County, he was the son of the late George Roberts Sr. and Beatrice Graves Roberts and the grandson of the late William and Nancy Jeffers Roberts. He was a member of Hamer Baptist Church in Blanch, NC where he served as a Chairman deacon for many years prior to his declining health. He also was a member of the Masonic Lodge.
George was a retired employee of Dan River Mills Inc. in Danville, Virginia where he worked as a machine operator and truck driver. He was also a farmer.
As the community knew George as "Jimmy" when he was growing up, they knew that farming was his specialty and he always loved being outside plowing his gardens and crops.
Survivors include his wife: Willie Ann Adams Roberts of the home, sons Tom Roberts, Hester Roberts, Jerry Roberts of Blanch, NC; daughters: Dale Roberts, Laura Roberts of Blanch, North Carolina, Alease McNair of Mebane, North Carolina, and Debbie K. Thaxton of McLeansville, North Carolina; two special nephews: Gerald and Timothy Graves of Burlington, North Carolina; grandchildren: Stephen Roberts and Julianne Walker (Everette) of Blanch, North Carolina, Trevor Roberts (Adia) of Greensboro, North Carolina and Taylor McNair of Cambridge, Massachusetts, one great granddaughter: Jamianne Freeman of Blanch, North Carolina; a daughter in law: Clarissa J. Roberts of Blanch, North Carolina and a host of other nephews, nieces, relatives and friends.
In addition to his parents and grandparents, he was preceded in death by a son Julius Karl Roberts and a sister Violet Graves.
