In Memory


  Ronald Hugh Roberts, fondly known as Ronzo, left us on Saturday, June 7, 2008, while camping with friends at the Kerrville Folk Festival. A long-time resident of Austin, Ronzo was born in Houston, Texas on March 9, 1950; graduating from Spring Woods High School in 1968. In his own words, he was a nerd (UNIX Systems Analyst) by day and a clown by night. Ronzo graduated from the University of Texas in 1975. Over the years, Ronzo was involved in numerous endeavors, including the Boy Scouts (an Eagle Scout and member of the Order of the Arrow,) sailing, CACTUS, and the democratic party. Ron is preceded in death by his mother Sybil Louise Elhert Roberts, and his older brother David Wilson Roberts, Jr. He is survived by Kathryn Joy Stevens (his significant other); his father, David Wilson Roberts, Sr.; his younger brother, Richard Charles (Chuck) Roberts; and many friends who loved him dearly. Ronzo didn't want a memorial or service. He asked instead that his friends have a party and celebrate his life. So long Ronzo, we'll "prepare to panic", and we'll miss you!
