Edward Newman Roberts

1934 - 2013

Edward Newman Roberts, age 79, of Louisa, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, January 21, 2012.  He was born on January 6, 1934, a son of the late Ercell and Ada Mae Clay Roberts.  Newman was the dedicated and loving husband of Toby Compton Roberts for 57 years.  They were married on April 2, 1955 in Vanceburg, Kentucky. 

Newman was a master of lots of trades including a journeyman, master plumber and carpenter.  His hobbies included building birdhouses, cabinets and many types of furniture that can be found in use in all his family’s homes.  Newman was never without an idea for a new project and his family and friends would profess he could repair anything that needed fixing.  He considered one of his greatest accomplishments plumbing and wiring a large log cabin for his nephew, Jack Compton.  It gave him great joy looking back on the work he did on that cabin and seeing what he created with his own hands.

Newman retired from Calgon Carbon’s Big Sandy Plant after 23 years of service in the maintenance department.

Newman loved being at home, watching Law & Order, eating peanut butter on Town House crackers with caffeine-free diet Pepsi.  The love for his home showed in his diligent work in maintaining the house and grounds surrounding his Watermelon Hill home where he lived for over 36 years.  His passion was raising a large garden and flowers during the summer.  He was a quiet, loving family man and from time to time enjoyed getting a joke on his grandchildren and especially his wife.  He was known as ‘Paw’ to his grandchildren and great grandchildren and was fondly referred to as ‘Paw Newman.’ 

Most of all, Newman loved the Lord.  He worked tirelessly for many months on helping build the Lighthouse Free Will Baptist Church and after the church was completed he continued as a faithful worshiper and member since its organization in 2001.  In 2010 the church made him an Honorary Deacon.  His recent illness kept him from attending Sunday School and church services as much as he wanted.  In the past he was a member of the Louisa Free Will Baptist Church where he served as a deacon for 38 years.  He was also a Kentucky Colonel. 

Survivors include his wife, Toby Ann Compton Roberts; three daughters, Robin (Karl) Adkins of Louisa, Kim (Rick) Chaffins of Louisa, and Suzie (Jamie) Harlan of Nashville, Tennessee; six grandchildren, Annie Adkins (John) Johnson, of Ashland, KY, Aaron (Laura Beth) Adkins of Lexington, KY, Michael Akers, Adam Chaffins, Joey Harlan and Jesse Harlan, all from Nashville, TN;  two brothers, Jack (Mary) Roberts and Lofton (Vera) Roberts; and one sister Mona (Ross) Chaffin.  He is preceded in death by is brothers Ralph Roberts and Bill Roberts.

Visitation will be Saturday from 2:00 to 9:00 at Wilson Funeral Home Louisa, Ky.  Funeral services will be held at the funeral home on Sunday, January 27th, at 11:00 a.m.  His grandsons will serve as pallbearers and Honorary pallbearers will be all the men, young and old, who worshiped with him at the Lighthouse Free Will Baptist Church.
