Mr. Roberts was born on June 16, 1929 in Memphis, Tennessee to his late parents. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing Church and Open League Softball at Shelby Park and coaching his daughter softball team. He was a proud and hardworking man, providing for his family and a true Alabama Fan “Roll Tide”. A favorite memory that was shared what growing up on Sunday afternoon; Mr. Roberts would make homemade ice cream, everything from traditional vanilla, snickers, chocolate and a kind just like Wendy’s Frosty.

    Uncle Jimmy will be sorely missed. He was the eldest son of the late Mr. John William Roberts and the late Annie Ozella McGeHee Roberts. He was loved and respected by all of his siblings. Aunt Amazona and the rest of the family our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
