Numa Roberts older

July 31, 1921 — March 19, 2014

Numa was born July 31, 1921, in Summit Township, Marion County, Kansas, and departed this earth on March 19, 2014, in Sacramento, Calif. He was raised on a farm in Florence, Kansas, by his parents, Numa H. Roberts and Gertrude V. Roberts. He married Marjorie J. Hunt on Jan. 15, 1945, in Emporia, Kansas. They were married 59-and-a-half years.

In 1942 Numa entered the U.S. Navy and served as a gunner’s mate aboard the USS Osmond K. Ingram. His ship received two presidential commendations for battles in World War II. His ship took supplies to Russia, sank two German submarines off the East Coast of the United States, was at the invasion of Southern France, and ended up at the battle of Okinawa. He finished his Navy career at Bikini Island for the atomic bomb testing. He got out of the Navy in 1947.

After getting out of the service, Numa and Marjorie moved to Diamond Springs, Calif. After living there for six months, they bought a house in El Dorado, Calif., and lived there until their passing. Numa worked for Diamond Lime Company, in the lumber industry, at Aerojet, and finished up his working years for El Dorado County in the Building Maintenance Department. He retired in 1986. He was a member of the American Legion. His hobbies were hunting, fishing, gardening and traveling with Marjorie until her death.

Numa was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Harold; his sisters, Ethel and Elsie; his son-in-law, Darrel Pearson; and his wife, Marjorie. He is survived by his daughters, Nancy Pearson and Marjorie Jeanne Powers; his sons, Edward and Shirley Roberts and Billy Roberts; his lady friend, Orpha Jones; four grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren.

There will be a celebration of life on April 24, at 1 p.m., at the Green Valley Community Church, 3500 Missouri Flat Road in Placerville. Now, may you rest in peace.
