ASHTABULA- James Michael Roberson, Sr. 65, passed away on Thursday, July 9, 2020 while a resident of Country Club Retirement Center.
The son of Jimmy and Roberta (Golden) Roberson, Jim was born on November 13, 1954 in Cleveland, Ohio.
For many years Jim was self- employed as an over the road truck driver. He enjoyed his job as it allowed him to see so much of the countryside and he liked watching nature as he traveled the highways while making his deliveries.
Jim was a collector of all things Irish, he had traveled several times to Ireland and always came back speaking more blarney than when he left! He collected anything that caught his eye. Jim enjoyed fishing and shooting guns, going to flea markets to look for hidden treasures, and cars. Jim was a member of the Brothers of the Third Wheel Motorcycle Trike Club. This was a group in which he had made many lasting friendships.
Jim is survived by his children, Jennifer (James) Anson, Julie Seaborn, Heather (Russ Childs) Roberson and James (Shani) Roberson, Jr; grandchildren, Kyle and Drew Anson, Kyrah Jones, Carter Childs, Kaleb, Caiden and Lillyonah Roberson; the mother of his children, Gloria (Steve) Pebbles; siblings, twins, Danny and David Golden, Patrick Roberson, Eric Roberson, John Roberson, Chris Bash and Amy Roberson; loving nieces and nephews.
