Robert Wayne Roberts, age 86, a resident of Ponce de Leon, passed away Friday, April 5, 2013 at the Joyce White Adult Care Home in Bonifay. As a young man, he served his country faithfully in the United States Navy. He and his wife Gertrude had been happily married 57 years when she passed away. Robert was a loved and faithful member of Grace Baptist Church in Ponce de Leon and was fondly known around the community as, "California Wayne" or "Pops." Sitting in the local Subway sipping coffee and talking was a daily occurrence he truly enjoyed. Thank you to Joyce White and her family for the love and care they gave Robert during his last years.
