William L. "Billy" Roberts
June 16, 1962 – April 4, 2019
William LaRue “Billy” Roberts, 56, of Pearl, passed from this life Thursday, April 4, 2019.
Visitation will be 2:00-4:00pm, Sunday, April 7, 2019, at Baldwin-Lee Funeral Home in Pearl. Celebration of Life Services will follow at 4:00pm in the funeral home chapel.
Billy was born June 16, 1962, in Prentiss, Mississippi, a son of the late Thomas LaRue Roberts and Winnie Joyce Shows Roberts.
Billy was self-employed in carpentry and plumbing, and his accomplished skills earned him much respect among his peers within the construction industry. His hobbies included hunting, fishing, playing guitar and classic rock music. A true “people person”, Billy’s happiest times were spent joking and picking with others, and his easy, out-going nature earned him friends quickly. Billy was most proud of his eight years of sobriety, and felt blessed to have his friends in AA.
He is survived by his daughter, Amanda Joyce Martin; sister, Frances Jernigan; grandsons, Rylan Hankins, Landon Long, Creed Martin, Grayson Martin, and Kade Martin; and several nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends.
