In memory of
Cleo F. Roberts
Cleo F. Roberts   Craftsbury-Cleo passed into his eternal home on August 20, 2018 after a four year residence at the Greensboro Nursing Home. Cleo was born in Machiasport, ME on November 2, 1930 to Beryl (Johnson) Roberts and Clinton Roberts. He had six siblings: Clinton, Greta, Julian, Floyd, Clarence and Donald.   Cleo served in the Marine Corps from 1948 to 1951. In 1952 he married Jean Kenerson and they settled in Connecticut raising their six children. Cleo worked most of his life at the Day Publishing Company in New London, CT. After raising their children, Cleo and his wife moved to Craftsbury, VT where they ran a general store for several years before retiring.   Cleo enjoyed many hobbies. He had a passion for motorcycles and loved to ride his Honda Gold Wing on roadtrips to Maine to visit relatives. He enjoyed fishing, boating and hunting. He was an avid country music fan and enjoyed singing and playing his guitar and harmonica. His family will miss the many campfires where he would play his guitar and sing old country & western songs.   Cleo is survived by his children: Bradford Roberts and his wife, Maria; Pamela Roberts; Todd Roberts and his wife, Victoria; Elizabeth Corrado and Kim Rosales; eight grandchildren: Kevin Roberts, Jr.; Stephen and Jessica Haefs; Christine and Mary Corrado; Anthony, Alex and Ashley Rosales and three great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife, Jean and son, Kevin.   A funeral service is planned for Saturday, August 25 at 1:00 p.m. at the Faith Funeral Home, 165 Brooklyn St., Morrisville.   Cleo’s family would like to express their thanks to the Greensboro Nursing Home staff for the loving care they provided Cleo during the last few years of his life. A special thanks to Sally whose friendship he enjoyed and to “Janny” who lifted his (and our) spirits with her beautiful singing.   In lieu of flowers, please consider visiting a nursing home and brightening someone’s day with a friendly word and smile.   Online condolences may be made by visiting faithfh.net.
