Steven Wesley Roberts

Master Deputy Steven Roberts succumbed to injuries sustained one month earlier when his motorcycle was struck by another vehicle as he responded to an accident.

Deputy Roberts had approached a vehicle that was in the left lane and attempted to pass it on the right. As he did so, the vehicle entered the right lane and struck Deputy Roberts' motorcycle, pushing it into a light pole. Deputy Roberts suffered severe internal injuries in the accident and both of his legs were amputated just below the thighs.

A rack of clothes hanging in the back seat blocked the driver's view. The driver's driving record at the time of the accident included 19 citations, including one previous fatal accident. The driver was sentenced to five years in jail in connection with Deputy Roberts' death.

Deputy Roberts had served with the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Department for 14 years. He is survived by his fiancee and two teen-age sons. His wedding was scheduled to be held three days after his death.

My True Love of my Life, Steven W. Roberts: Well, I guess you have already have seen our beautiful grandchildren looking down from Heaven, Justin is 4 years old, and Paisley is 2 years old. Both of them are adorable and every now and then I catch a glimpse of your smile upon their faces. Both of our sons, Wesley & Micheal are doing Great!! Micheal just got married to our sweet daughter in law, Emily. She is wonderful mom and takes good care of of our grand-babies. They have a horse, just like you did. Justin gets up everyday to feed her. They have had several different farm animals and they love being outside. Our oldest son, Wesley, (still single--ugh!) has been a supervisor for the maintenance department at the Wood County offices for nearly 6 years. I can tell that he has followed your foot steps a lot especially when he talks about anything, he thinks and sounds just like you. We spend as much time together to make and share family memories. I know you are near us everyday and watching us grow together. Thank you Dear for watching over me, I can feel your present near me. You are my Everything and will always be my True Love... Sending all my Kisses and Love to you in Heaven, forever....... until we meet again. Much Love Always, Sylvia Roberts
