In memory of
Rev. Albert Wilbur Roberts Sr.
To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted. Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 A Time To Be Born Reverend Albert Wilbur Roberts, Sr., was born April 5, 1932 to the late Charlie Barrett Roberts and the late Helen "Arie Bell" Roberts, in Tampa, Florida. A Time To Live Albert grew up in Riceboro, Georgia. He received his formal education in the public schools of Liberty County, Georgia. As a young man, in 1953, Albert relocated his family to Florida to pursue a career as an automotive mechanic and later as a transfer truck driver. Albert would later continue his education in 1978, at Florida Memorial College's seminary program. Albert became an ordained and licensed Baptist minister in 1980. Albert served as the associate pastor at Greater New Macedonia Baptist Church of Miami, Florida from 1980 – 2010. A Time To Love At the age of 19, in 1951, Albert was united in holy matrimony to his child-hood sweetheart, Bessie Elizabeth Winn, of Riceboro, Georgia. Bessie and Albert's love endured on earth for 56 years and continues in heaven for eternity. A Time To Die On Thursday, June 18, 2020 the Master whispered to Reverend Albert Wilbur Roberts, Sr. and said, "come home." The angel of eternal rest came to give Albert rest for a job well done on earth. A Time To Mourn Albert was preceded in death by his wife, Bessie Roberts; parents, Charlie and Helen Roberts; sister, Charlie Mae Brumfield; brothers, Willie "Bill" Williams; Leo "LJ" Roberts; Charles "Sonny" Stephens; grandsons Tyrone Roberts, and Christopher Roberts.
