Obituary: McKay Roberts

1932 ~ 2003

McKay (Mic) Roberts passed away Friday, Sept 12th, surrounded by his loving family.

Mic was born to Everal and Gladys Roberts on Sept 16, 1932, in Star Valley, WY. After graduating from Star Valley High School, he served his country in the U.S. Army.

Upon discharge, he moved to Utah where he later met and married Mary Evalyn (McLelland) Larsen on Aug. 15, 1969. He completed technical training as a welder and worked at Nu-Art Lighting, Industrial Parts Depot, and American Stone, retiring in 1995.

Mic was a member of the LDS Church. He was also a member of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles.

Mic greatly enjoyed traveling, fishing and camping, but his greatest joy came from spending time with his family. He was well-known for his friendly and outgoing personality and sense of humor. Mic's family would like to thank the wonderful staff in the Intensive Coronary Care Unit at LDS Hospital for the professional and compassionate care given to him during this most difficult time.

Mic is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Eva Roberts, and his three daughters, Deborah and Michael Parson (Roseburg, OR), Pamela and Todd Pace, and Brenda and Steven Hook (Salt Lake City), six brothers and sisters, Yvonne Thurman, LaWanna Smith, Charles Roberts, Wright Roberts, Valynn Beasley and Ted Roberts. He is also survived by 11 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. He was preceded in death by his parents.

A viewing will be offered Sunday evening, Sept 14th from 5-7 p.m. at Valley View Funeral Home, 4335 West 4100 South. A Graveside Service will be held Monday, Sept 15th, at 11:00 a.m. at Valley View Memorial Park, 4400 West 4100 South.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Veterans Administration Hospital.

Mic, without a doubt, you are cuter than us! We'll miss you so very much!
