James Michael Roberts, age 55 beloved husband of nearly 18 years to Shelly Lynn (Clymer) Roberts of Naugatuck entered peaceful rest on August. 28, 2021.
He leaves a huge hole in the hearts of his family and friends who were always entertained by his hilarious sense of humor. He was a fantastic father, a devoted husband, son, brother, uncle and a best friend to all. No matter the circumstance, you’d always leave with a story of something funny or crazy that Jimmy did while you were with him. There wasn’t anyone that he wouldn’t engage in conversation, and he was always willing to help everyone in any situation.
He was born in Bridgeport on June 15, 1966 and was the son of the late Joseph Kenneth and Mildred (Nuzzi) Roberts. Jim grew up in Milford and had a love and passion for wrestling throughout his high school years, he loved cars, motorcycles, music, photography, and most of all spending time with his family and friends. He proudly enjoyed supporting his son who also decided to wrestle and was a huge supporter of their team, Platt Tech/West Haven and never missed a match. He enjoyed spending time riding his Harley Davidson with his wife alongside and going for long drives in his Corvette with the top down.
Jim is survived by his beloved wife of nearly 18 years, Shelly, his loving son, Justin Michael Roberts, an Active-Duty SSgt/Firefighter in the United States Air Force, whom he was very proud of. He leaves behind his sister, Linda Borer (Al) of Milford, his brother, Joseph S. Roberts (Kelly) of Trumbull and sister Lori J. Roberts of Milford. He also leaves his nieces and nephews, Jennifer, John, Katie Borer, Joseph and Blake Roberts, his great nieces and nephews, Vinny, Sophia, Austyn, Hunter, Lily and Charlee, his lifelong friends Guy Barbano and June (Middleton) Sangapore and his beloved rescue dog, Molly.
