Don Roberts, age 58, left us on March 21, 2002, in Salt Lake City, Utah, from Strep A Sepsis Bacterial Infection, that took over his body. He was born October 21, 1943 in Ogden, Utah to Eugene and Grace Roberts (both deceased). He married his best friend and wife, Katherine, on February 7, 1967, in Jackson, Mississippi. They raised two children, Brenda (Scott) Stone and Debbie (Mike) McKean. He has two brothers, Dennis (Barbara) Roberts (Mike & Jamie) and Roger (Cathy) Roberts. Our grandchildren, Justin, Jazmine, Jaden, Raquel and Ashley, will miss their "Papa" and his gentle ways.

Don leaves behind a special mother-in-law "Granny" whom he loved very much. Don and Kathy shared a lot of good times with a special friend, Jan Leddy. He will be dearly missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins and long time friends. Don spent 6 years in the US Marine Corp., retired with 32 years at the Postal Service, and was employed at Associated Foods for 2 1/2 years in the mail room. We know he"s golfing somewhere with some of his passed on friends.

The family would like to thank Dr. John Luras and the staff at Salt Lake Regional for doing their best to save our dad, husband, papa, brother and friend.

A celebration of his life was held at their home on April 6, 2002.

In lieu of flowers, please donate your kind heart and lend a hand in support to his family to make it through this difficult time. We love you dad.

Willie Nelson sings it best, "What am I going to do with the rest of my life?" I love you Don. Your wife, Kathy.
