Life Story

On Thursday March 3, 2022, God in his infinite Wisdom, Mercy, and Grace, called our beloved Kenny home to his eternal rest. Kenneth Warren Roberts was born April 8, 1948, to Charles C., and Juanita E. Roberts, (both deceased). He received his schooling through the Philadelphia Public School System and graduated from West Philadelphia High School. He received his Associates Degree in Applied Science-Dental Technology from Williamsport Area Community College. Kenny served in the Vietnam War and received an honorable discharge on November 16, 1971.

Upon his return, he became employed by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. The consummate salesman, Kenny utilized his talents in the automobile industry at a variety of dealerships throughout the tri-state area until he retired in 2007. He received the Penn Medicine Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of valuable contributions to resident education in 2018. That same year he received a Certificate of Completion for a computer course. In 2018, he also accepted the Lord Christ Jesus as his personal Savior and joined Mt. Carmel Baptist Church In West Philadelphia. Kenny had a love for fashion and was always meticulous about his appearance. His wife said "if you really knew him once he got dressed, he wanted to go get a ‘smile’." He especially enjoyed a challenging game of chess.

Kenny lived his life intentionally, confidently, and unapologetically evident by this 2015 quote where he articulated; “I accept my past without regret, handle the present with all the confidence, and face my future without fear. Take that to the bank!”

Kenneth was preceded in death by his brother Mark E. Roberts. Left to celebrate his life is his loving wife Crystal Tann Roberts. Children; Allen Jackson and Nicole Burton. Sisters; Glynis E. Roberts and Charlene E. Hayes, (husband Reginald). Niece, Marquita J. Kennedy; Nephew, Eric E. Roberts; Great Nieces; Acire Roberts, MaKenna I. Barrett, and Meiko L. Barrett. Cousins; Tyrone and Taryn R. Robinson, and a host of other relatives and friends
