Kenneth H. Roberts Obituary
Kenneth H. Roberts, 73, of Hammondsport, New York, died June 29, peacefully in his home with his wife by his side. Born on July 12, 1940, and originally from New Jersey, Kenneth moved his family to Hammondsport in 1980. Kenny was a loyal and devoted husband, father, and friend. Beloved by all who knew him, Kenny lived a joyful life overflowing with generosity, peace, and respect for nature and humanity. He is especially known and remembered for his love of animals, his enthusiasm for music, his interest in naval history, and his voracious appetite for reading, as well as being a life-long New York Giants fan. Known to his grandchildren as "Papa," he was always ready with swords, movies, and "good-bye candy." His zest for life will remain eternal in his family. He is survived by his loving wife Diana (Palumbo), 2 sons, Edward (Lauren) and Victor (Rebecca), 4 daughters, Christine (Albert) Marte, Diane (Thomas) Mitchell, Elaine (David) Brundage, Kathleen (Thomas) Kressly, 12 grandchildren, 1 brother, Harold Roberts, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Kenny will be honored by his family at a private service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Kenny's favorite charitable organization, Save the Chimps at P.O. Box 12220, Ft. Pierce FL 34979 or at savethechimps.org. The family would like to thank the CareFirst Hospice team and the many friends who offered support and prayers during this difficult time. lamarche funeralhome.com
