Dave, just read your article in OBJ; I had no idea; I always appreciated your patient even-handedness in the cases we had together. It was my honor to know you.
David Roberts, the most handsome boy in the class of '64, an all around athlete whose magnificent intelligence was purposely hidden by a rugged, ragged, wicked sense of humor that caused a fair number of female classmates and younger girls to look at him as the most eligible BMOC at DHS. Reading of his numerous, impressive and inspiring lifelong achievements are a source of great pride for fellow DHS classmates who lost contact w/ Dave over the years. David and Mike Burgess often teased until tears flowed; David and Johnny Woody were a dynamic duo on the basketball court as well as the gridiron, and Mrs. Robert's was justifiably proud of her son's intellectual accomplishments. But Dave's accomplishments as a human being brings great pride to our home town that has produce so many wonderful people whose presence truly made this world a better place. Thank you for being the among the best Dewey Dave.
We who practiced law with and against Dave will miss him dearly. He was true scholar. Thanks Dave for all the wisdom you sent my way. I will try to pass it on. What a great mind.
May your memories of the wonderful times you shared with your loved one comfort you and your family, today and always.
To my across the alley neighbors in Dewey I am sad to hear of Dave's passing. I spoke with him professionally from time to time when our paths crossed in our profession. We always talked about Dewey first, our Dewey families and ultimately about whatever case occasioned the phone call. Thinking about you guys, CRUSH.
David you will truly be missed here at the OWCC. You always had a smile on your face and thanks for the small talks we shared. May God keep you and give your family peace knowing that you are in God's arms. Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
Dewey was a great guy. He had a warped sense of humor, but he was very funny. His imagination had no boundaries. I have many fond memories of Dave, most of the memories we were laughing. He will be missed. He was definitely one of a kind.
I love this photo of Dewey Dave - same twinkle in the eye of one of the funniest and smartest people I have known. As Beta Theta Pi frat brothers, we roomed together for many years, some of the best of my life. He was a great athlete, but realized early on that there were more important things in life. He pursued them to the fullest.
To Marilyn and Jeannie, My thoughts and prayers are with you at the loss of your brother David. What a personal and professional legacy he leaves. I still remember him as the young man at the Robert's house when Marilyn and I were teens hanging out-- and his smile still infectious. I love it that he was called Dewey Dave. Sincerely,
He was my mentor, my adviser, my teacher and a dear friend. Rest in peace.
He was my friend, my teacher, my mentor and my adviser. Rest in peace.
I worked with Dave for close to 10 years at Compsource and remembered his love for OU football. He even shared his tickets many times with us. He was a good guy and had a wicked sense of humor. He will be missed.
This is exactly how I remember Dave...this mischievous smile! Reading about Dave's life does not surprise me..he was not a conformist, and was always seeking 'more'. I know Ruth and Ken were very proud of their "King David'. This is a hugh loss for the Roberts family, and you all have my deepest condolences.
