Richard Louis Roberts passed away quietly on Thursday, June 7th from complications with COPD. He is survived by his Step-Daughter, 3 Step-Sons, 7 Grandchildren, and 9 Great-Grandchildren.

He had a long and proud career in the Southern California Gas Company as well being a First Sergeant in the California National Guard. Richard also spent much of his time as an Elks member of Lodge 966 in San Pedro, California eventually becoming Exalted Ruler. He continued to serve the Elks in many capacities for several years and had gained many titles while being a member of the Elks. Richard married Rose M. Zuvich on August 1st, 1970 and enjoyed 41 wonderful years of marriage. His love of traveling across the U.S.A. allowed him and Rose to visit distant family so as to remain close to all parts of his family, both near and far. Richard was later widowed on February 26th 2012. The Rosary/Viewing will be Monday, June 25th @ 7PM at McNerney’s Mortuary in San Pedro, California.
