Arland "Arlie" Howard Roberts, age 83, passed away on Sunday September 5th, 2021, at Mercy Medical Center in Oshkosh from COVID-19. He was born on January 7th 1938 in the town of Nekimi to William and Burnett (Gillen) Roberts. Arlie married Roane (Nitz) Roberts on June 24th 1961 at Grace Lutheran Church in Pickett, WI.

He enjoyed driving all over the countryside and would always take the back roads to get there. He would often visit family and friends and take them for a drive too. He liked to attend tractor pulls, farming events, and especially enjoyed going out to eat. If you were ever with him, you never went hungry! Throughout his life he went by nicknames Sam and Green Giant but, was most proud of being called Dad and Gramps.
