Kenneth Roberts

SOUTHWICK – Kenneth “Bones” Roberts passed away Tuesday, January 9th, 2024, late that night in Southwick after his fight with cancer took a horrible turn for the worse shortly after the holidays. Fortunately, he did not suffer long, and left at peace after the visits and support of his many family members, friends, and loved ones.

He is survived by his wife and best friend Caroline Roberts, his son Steven Roberts of Westfield, his two daughters Shauna Seligman and her husband Michael of Enfield CT and Jordyne Taylor, as well as his four grandchildren Anthony Roberts, Jeremy, Barrett, and Koda Seligman. He is also survived by his brother Robin Roberts and his wife Linda of Southwick and his sister Diane Schnopp and her husband Peter from New Mexico.

Ken was a fun-loving and warm-hearted man. He was a devoted and loving husband, a strong and supportive father, and a wonderful Papa.

Ken proudly served his country in the United States Air Force. He was an avid fan of baseball, NASCAR and horse racing, but most of all, his family.

The family would like to thank Baystate Health Hospice for their wonderful care.

Family and friends are invited to meet for calling hours on Sunday, January 14th from 12-3 p.m. with a Funeral Home service at 3 p.m. at the Southwick-Forastiere Funeral Home, 624 College Highway, Southwick.
