Brian is a part of so many of my memories from high school and college. He was a talented musician, creative thinker, and a great friend. His smile, ability to make others laugh, and ever-changing musical endeavors will always stand out in my memory. He was well known and well liked by many; he will be missed.

I will keep the Roberts family in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult and sad time. My heart goes out to you.

To the family of Brian Roberts:

I am shocked and incredibly saddened to hear about your loss. I hadn't known Brian for long, but I do know that he was a very kind and fun-loving individual. When I first started coming to the game store he frequented, he was one of the first people who welcomed me in and made me feel like I belonged. He will be missed by all his friends and loved ones.
