Junior was born in Lebanon, MO to Eugene and Ollie Roberts, and grew up a simple country boy with 11 brothers and sisters. He loved spending his days fishing and enjoying the outdoors

As a young man, he moved to Kansas City looking for opportunities and eventually found work with CDI Construction, where he retired. During this time he met his wife of 55 years, Kathy, and had two sons, Darrell and Troy. His first-born, Darrell, married Susie and blessed him with his grandsons, Bryan and Noah, and great grandchildren, Dayten, Presley, and Gracelyn. His youngest son, Troy, married Susan and blessed him with his granddaughter, Ashley.

Junior was a hard worker always willing to lend a helping hand. He 
enjoyed fishing, restoring cars, and watching wrestling, but most of all, he loved being with family and friends.

Junior is survived by his wife, Kathy; sons, Darrell and Troy, and 
their families; sisters, Judy, Betty, and Nancy; and his little buddy (Chihuahua), Rocky.

He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Eugene and Ollie; brothers, Jack, Don, John, Bill, David and James; and sisters, Evajean and Alberta.
