Eugene T. Roberts

Departed on October 6, 2018

Resided in Arvada, Colorado

Eugene "Gene" T. Roberts passed away just after midnight on Saturday October 6th, 2018 in Arvada, Jefferson County, Colorado. He is survived by Judith Roy, his beloved life companion of 29 years and her children, Michelle and Lauren. He is also survived by his children Mark and Carla, who's mother Patricia Boogar predeceased Gene; and his children Jeannine and Antony, who's mother Nancy Roberts predeceased Gene. Gene leaves a full family legacy of thirteen grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren.

Gene was a loving, great man. He always put his family first. He was a compassionate man who genuinely cared for others. He gave wisdom and encouragement to his family well into their adult years. Unfortunately, he suffered from Alzheimer's disease in the last four to five years. Even so, we all remember his humor, his smile, his laughter and his great bear hugs.

Gene served in the United States Air Force in Germany during the Korean War. He then served over twenty years as a civilian teacher and administrator for Department of Defense Dependents' Schools (DODDS) in Japan, Korea and Okinawa. He retired as a GS-14. He then moved back to the United States and worked with his life-long hobby of collecting and restoring timepieces and other antiquities.

We all will forever remember him in the love and caring for our family and others that he also imparted in us to leave a legacy for our children and grandchildren. He lives not only in our memories, but also in our actions.

Not only did he inherit the Alden family name he also inherited his mother’s (Helene West) and his grandfather’s (Harry Alden Grout) artistic and creative talents.

Dennis was predeceased by his mother Helene West and Father Elvin West.

He always had a love of art and then walked out the back door of the university and into the creative world and immediately continued being a metal sculptor, silk screener, designer, stained glass artist, illustrator, painter, and poet, he did all of these things with a true heart of a bohemian artist. He was so passionate about his art that he pursued it on a full time basis and things began to take off for him when he opened the 23rd Avenue Sculpture Studio on 23rd and King in the heart of North Denver where he was born and raised. After many years of being a starving artist he enlarged his world to embrace the North Denver community including local artists, neighbors, school children, and anyone who needed a helping hand. The open door policy that he always had for his space created something so special that there are not enough words to describe it.

He won numerous local and regional awards for his creativity, design and community involvement. His work can be found throughout the metro area, Colorado and can be found across the world.

As talented as he was his greatest gift was his open heart, his kindness, his humor, and his undeniable willingness to offer a helping hand in any situation for anyone - from fixing neighborhood bikes, to feeding neighborhood kitties and adopting stray turtles. His kindness has touched and formed so many friendships over the years.

In addition to his great talent, he lived a humble, simple life, and spent his entire life doing what he loved the most creating art and earning his “gold bricks” to heaven. This tribute to him could go on for pages and pages - but any of you that are reading this know how special he was to the world.

A celebration of life will be held on October 20th at 4101 N Harlan St, Wheat Ridge CO, 80033 from 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM the family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to Amoreena Corbin to help offset the remaining medical expenses.
