It has been a long road from Granite Falls High School. You were and still are a precious friend. John (mule) and I have lost a classmate that we shall forever be grateful to have known. Now you are in Heaven. Rest in Peace

So sorry to hear that Mr. Roberts has passed. I worked with Mr. Roberts for over a decade and he taught me so much - lessons that have helped me throughout my career. He was at the helm of the Carolina Utility Customers Association at its inception in 1983 and was a great leader of this organization. With heartfelt sympathy, Sharon Miller and members of CUCA
