Michael John Roberts, age 35, of Fort Collins, Colorado, passed away on March 8th, 2019. Mike was born on December 11th, 1983 to Luke and Joan (Wilke) Roberts in Belton, Missouri. The family moved to Loveland, Colorado in 1988 when Mike was 5. He attended HMS Richards Elementary School and Campion Academy High School. After high school, Mike attended Colorado State University and graduated in 2010 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biochemistry and a minor in Chemistry. He had began working for Safeway/Albertsons shortly after high school and continued until his passing. He also worked as a Teaching Assistant at CSU for several semesters.

Mike was an avid CSU Rams football fan and attended every home game for many years and often traveled to away games. He really enjoyed attending games with his brother Chris, also a CSU alum. Mike was a big Colorado Eagles hockey fan and went to many of their games as well. He also loved playing golf and going bowling with friends.

Mike loved visiting the mountains and climbed several 14ers, including Longs Peak twice. He hiked to many remote and trail-less mountains and had a goal to climb every mountain in Larimer County, which he was halfway to completing. He enjoyed hiking with his family and friends, many of whom had similar goals and interests. Mike loved animals of all kinds, but especially his beloved Tiny Cat.

Mike always made a point of spending as much time with family as possible, which was not always easy since most of his family lives out of state. Nevertheless, Mike would always find a way to attend family gatherings. Mike will be greatly missed by his family and many friends and coworkers, who all enjoyed his laughter and friendly smile.

Michael is survived by his mother Joan and father Luke, of Loveland, and brother Chris Roberts of Kansas City. He is also survived by his grandmother Marilyn, uncle Bruce (Marti), cousins Jeff (Carrie) and Brett Wilke, of Kansas City, and cousin Talyor Cozad of Arkansas, as well as many extended family in South Dakota and elsewhere. Mike was preceded in death by his grandfather Marvin Wilke, grandparents Edward and Ellanora Roberts, and aunt Jane Cozad. Mike is also survived by his many friends and coworkers who he always enjoyed working alongside.

In lieu of flowers, gifts can be donated to the Larimer County Humane Society.
