Obituary for Charles E. "Charley" Roberts

Charles E. “Charley” Roberts, age 79, of KY Highway 801 South, Morehead, passed away Saturday, February 16, 2019, at his residence.

Born October 13, 1939, in Morehead, he was a son of the late Pinkard Lloyd Roberts and Esta Thomas Roberts. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, George L. Roberts, and a sister, Jeanette Deloris Roberts Cornett.

Charley is survived by one son, Charles Zane Roberts and wife Rosemary of Morehead; one daughter, Barbara Lee Carpenter and husband Keith of Nicholasville; the mother of his children, Minnie Lewis Roberts of Nicholasville; and two grandchildren, David Random Carpenter and William Randall Carpenter.

After graduating from Rowan County High School, Charley moved to Chicago, Illinois, to work in the steel mills. He returned to Morehead and was employed as a truck driver for Caudill Tire Company prior to beginning a 31-year career with G.T.E. He retired from General Telephone in 1995.

Charley was known by many for his cowboy hats. He enjoyed mowing his yard, saving cans for recycling, and having coffee every morning with his friends at McDonalds. He will be greatly missed.
