Fred Nathan Roberts, Age 67, of Terrace Street, Wellsburg, NY, passed peacefully on Tuesday, February 1, 2022 with his family by his side. He was born in Elmira, NY on May 15, 1954, the son of the late Beatrice Emily (Fitzsimmons) and Gordon Harold Roberts. He is pre-deceased by his brother Merrell.
Retired after 45 years, Fred was the Town of Ashland Highway Superintendent, ensuring the roads and highways were safe for town residents and passersby. One for never sitting still, Fred enjoyed tinkering in the garage, hunting on his land and the occasional visit to the Sportsman’s Club. He will be remembered most for his sense of humor, generous nature and incredibly kind heart. He was the first person others thought of when they needed a helping hand, and he took every call. Through the years he was involved in a great number of fraternal and social organizations that were very meaningful to him. Fred will be deeply missed by his family, friends and the Wellsburg community.
