Ronald Wayne Roberts
Ronald Wayne Roberts died Nov. 7, 2017, at his home in Cleveland, after a battle with stage 4 lung cancer. He was 70.
Wayne is survived by his son, Randy Singleton; daughter-in-law, Tammy Brown; his grandchildren, Kody Singleton, Kaedon Singleton, and Savannah Griffin; great-grandchildren, Emma Singleton, Joaquin Singleton, Kody Asher Singleton, Oscar Singleton, Jonah Griffin, and Willa Ann Griffin. He is also survived by a sister.
He was preceded in death by his mother and father.
Wayne was a driven man with many talents and hobbies, including woodworking and diesel mechanics. He was a housing supervisor, and had a love of plants and beautiful foreign cars. Wayne was of the Jehovah's Witness faith.
When diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer in 2016, he remained dedicated in his work, and in his will to fight his illness. He continued to be a brave, iron-willed man. Even throughout his final month, Wayne still cut his grass, maintained his house and property, ate breakfast every day at McDonald's, and still engaged in routine phone conversations with his grandchildren.
Wayne was born May 28, 1947. He was drafted into the military, where he served in Vietnam as a diesel mechanic. Wayne was married to Sandra Singleton, and raised Randy Singleton. After serving his time in the military, he went on to work as a mechanic and a carpenter. Wayne also managed Shoal Creek Mobile Estates until his death.
Wayne's final wish was to be cremated. His ashes will be saved in his grandson's home in Alabama.
A visitation is planned from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17, 2017, at Alexander Funeral Home.
The family would like to thank Wayne’s caregiver and friends for their excellent work, hospitality and loving care and support, as well as Alexander Funeral Home for making the arrangements.
