Just before dawn on September 18th, John Idris Roberts passed away peacefully from this world to the next. He is survived by his twin brother, Peter (Erica) Roberts of Somerset, UK; son, Randal (Noreen) Roberts; daughter, Linda Roberts (Gio Solinas); grandchildren, Sabrina Spencer, Christopher and Matthew Solinas; brother-in-law, John (Helen) Forsgren; sister-in-law, Jeanette (Buzz) Schell; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
John was predeceased by wife, Edna; and younger brother, David.
In his lifetime, John was: a Welsh sheep farmer, a cowboy, a photo finisher, a star Fuller Brush salesman, a purveyor of fine coffee and doughnuts, and finally a proud Hearing Aid Practitioner. He was also a great man of faith.
