Dave earned his AA degree from Caldwell Community College and attended Appalachian State University. He was a longtime affiliate of Tennille and Associates.

Dave was the best of a loving community. He was happy to welcome you into his home and delighted that you would spend time with him and those he loved the most. His humor was renowned – from the Boone Drug King Street Boys to the Boone Golf Course – and his Andy Griffith inspired humor kept all humbled. Most importantly, Dave never made anyone feel small. He honored people and made friends wherever he went.

Dave is preceded in death by his parents, Ray and Violet Roberts as well as his sister, Dorothy Roberts Davis.

In lieu of flowers, family and friends are encouraged to make a gift to the Dave Roberts Memorial Fund for Student Support Services at Appalachian State University, online at http://givenow.appstate.edu/roberts 

During Dave’s time in the hospital, he received attentive and heartfelt care from an Appalachian and Student Support Services alumnae, Hannah Sheets Adams `14. Hannah, a first generation college graduate and recipient of the inaugural Kenneth E. Peacock Spirit of ACCESS Award, embodies the type of person the fund will support. Hannah demonstrates compassion, integrity, and grace on a daily basis, and these characteristics are the focus of the Dave Roberts Memorial Fund.
