Richard 'Dick' Hedley Roberts July 18, 1948 - May 31, 2019 Roberts, Richard Hedley 'Dick' - It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Dick Roberts, on Friday, May 31, 2019, after a lengthy battle with cancer, age 69 years. Dick was the proud owner of Roberts' Barber Shop in Mount Pearl. Established in 1972, he was a barber extraordinaire to many generations, and gave out lots of 'First Haircut' certificates over the years. Dick was a lover of the outdoors. He loved to travel, especially to Ireland and the rest of Europe, but his big heart never left Bonne Bay. Hunting was one of his great passions, as well as the many excursions on his boat - 'The Andrea Paul'. He was a funny and whitty character and will be sadly missed but greatly remembered by all who knew him. Predeceased by his parents, Cleve and Jeanette; his only beloved son, Paul Richard (1991, at age 18 years); and parents-in-law, Capt. Gordon and Mary Walsh. Leaving to mourn with a lifetime of wonderful memories, his loving and devoted wife of 48 years, Pat (nee Walsh), whom he first met in Bonne Bay in 1970; his treasured and only daughter, whom he thought the world of, Andrea (Robert) Janzen; his adored grandchildren: Rachael and Andrew; brothers: Noel (Myra) and Peter (Pamela); sister, Susan (Ron) Melanson; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family, friends - including close neighbours and his Barber Shop employees. Visitation to take place from Barrett's Funeral Home, 73 Commonwealth Avenue, Mount Pearl, on Sunday, June 2, and Monday, June 3, from 1-4pm and 6-9pm. Funeral mass to take place from St. Peter's Parish, Ashford Drive, on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 at 10:00am, with interment to follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
