Obituary for Jerry Dean Roberts

Jerry Dean Roberts, age 75, died May 24, 2018 after a short illness. He was born February 11, 1943 in Canute, OK to James A. and Sybil Minyard Roberts. He grew up in Marietta, OK and was a graduate of Marietta High School. He proudly served in the U.S. Army, during which time he married the love of his life, Jo Beth Holly, in a quaint chapel in Massachusetts. After returning to Oklahoma, Jerry received his Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Southwestern Oklahoma State University. He worked as a Canine Officer for the Weatherford Police Department while attending college. He went on to teach and coach for several years at Gould Public School. In 1978, Jerry and his family moved to Mustang, Oklahoma. He spent the majority of his career at the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety, serving as Director of Drivers License Division and later as Director of Supply, before retiring after 20 years of service. Jerry was a member of Lakehoma Church of Christ in Mustang, OK.
Jerry is survived by his beloved wife Jo of the home in Mustang; one daughter Dee Ellison and husband Chris of Hollis, OK; two sons Greg Roberts of Mustang, OK, and Jay Roberts of Edmond, OK; six grandchildren, eight great grandchildren; one brother Leo Roberts and wife Jean of Ardmore, OK; and by a host of nieces and nephews. Jerry was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers W.E. Roberts and Calvin Roberts.
Jerry was known and loved by so many. He was the epitome of love and kindness. He put everyone’s needs before his own and loved beyond measure. He was taken too soon, but we know as he rejoices in Heaven, we will have a guardian angel until we meet again.
Services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at Lakehoma Church of Christ in Mustang, OK, with a private family interment following at Fairmount Cemetery in Hollis, Oklahoma. Arrangements are being handled by McNeil’s Funeral Service, Mustang, Oklahoma.
