Obituary for Darrell Roberts
Darrell Leon Roberts, 69, of Greeley, passed away on March 23, 2017 at Tru Hospice in Greeley.
Darrell was born in Greeley to Laurin and Velda (Hathaway) Roberts on November, 27, 1947. He grew up in Evans and graduated from Evans High School. As an adult, Darrell dedicated 19+ years as an Evans Volunteer Fire Fighter.
He enjoyed building boats, spending time with family, and relaxing with his best friend Maverick, his 20+ year old cat. Darrell’s passion and purpose in life was to help others even if he did not know them. In his own words, “The good ole’ Joe who helps people and animals”. He was a very humble man that helped truly with his heart and for no other reason.
Darrell is survived by children, Jeff (Pamela) Roberts of Tacoma, WA, Laura (Chris) Meyer, of Seattle, WA, Robert (Meagan) Meyer, and Jacklyn (Ryan) Lundquist of Loveland; and a large loving extended family.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Wayne Roberts.
