Geoffrey Roberts, 60, died on December 16, 2018. Geoff was the son of Leonard and Mary (Paterson) Roberts Jr. Geoff was born in St. Johnsbury and spent his early years in Craftsbury, where his mother grew up on her family’s farm and his father’s parents owned the General Store in the village. He graduated from St. Johnsbury Academy and attended Lyndon State College. Geoff lived in the Barre-Montpelier area for most of his life and spent the last 13 years at the Heaton Woods Assisted Living Residence in Montpelier. Geoff loved history. He was a lifelong reader and seeker and enjoyed reading about many different things. Geoff volunteered at the Vermont History Center in Barre for many years and greatly enjoyed the time he spent with the staff and other volunteers. What Geoff loved most was spending time with family and friends. Geoff faced the end of his life with tremendous courage and faith and was an inspiration both to the many friends and family. Geoff was deeply admired for all the things that he had to overcome in his life. Geoff is survived by his sister, Jennifer Roberts, of Newton, MA, many wonderful cousins and his dear “niece,” Bella and her family.
