Thomas "Tommy" Edgar Roberts, Jr, 70, went to be with his Lord and Savior on November 15, 2021. He was a resident of Bogue Chitto, MS. He was retired for over 15 years from Buquet & LeBlanc, Inc. with 30 years of service. Visitation will be Monday, November 22, 2021 at First Baptist Church in Zachary from 10:00 am until noon, service time at 12:30 pm. conducted by Dr. Reggie Bridges, Leon Wallace and Milton Coates. Burial will follow in LA National Cemetery, Zachary. Tommy is survived by his wife of nearly 28 years, Christine A. Roberts, sons, Jason Roberts of Baker, LA and Jonathan Roberts (Emily) of Asheville, NC, brother, Charles Roberts of Baker and grandson, Hudson Roberts. Tommy is preceded in death by his parents, Thomas and Eva Roberts and his best friend, Gary Ramsey. Pallbearers will be Buddy Baudouin, Jody Boyd, Dennis Kirby, Jason Roberts, Jonathan Roberts, and WC Shaw. Honorary pallbearers are Charles Roberts and Hudson Roberts. Tommy graduated from Glen Oaks High School in Baton Rouge. He proudly served in the US Army during Vietnam where he earned the Marksmanship Expert Award. He completed his carpentry apprenticeship in 1976 and was a prolific builder of furniture, homes and commercial buildings, including Towne Center, Istrouma Baptist Church and St. James Place. Most recently he relocated to Mississippi to renovate an old home. Tommy was a faithful servant and deacon at First Baptist Church in Zachary for over 20 years. Tommy enjoyed spending time with his family, fishing trips with his buddies, looking for opportunities to help others, carpentry projects, spending time on the porch at his home in Mississippi and his cabin in the Smoky Mountains, watching the rodeo, barrel racing, and fishing shows, creating things with his hands, and above all being Pawpaw to his grandson. A scripture Tommy lived by was Matthew 6:19-20 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal." In lieu of flowers, please make memorial donations to LA Baptist Childrens Home, 7200 Desiard Street, Monroe, LA 71203.
