Wayland Roberts

March 23, 1928 — April 15, 2022

New Braunfels, TX

Wayland was a dearly loved son, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle and friend.

Wayland graduated from Round Rock High School in 1947 where he met his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Doris June Roberts. Wayland and June were happily married for 74 years. He worked as Super Intendent for Austin White Lime Company for 25 years. While working for Austin White Lime Company, he was trained in first aid which enabled him to save the life of a young boy at an accident scene Wayland happened upon. Doctors advised the young boy’s family that Wayland had saved the young boys life by expertly applying pressure to stop the bleeding from a head wound until an ambulance arrived. The boy’s family was forever grateful for Wayland’s efforts and often visited him in the years following. Wayland enjoyed traveling with June in their younger years and loved to play Keno in Las Vegas. He enjoyed, playing the guitar, western swing music. He had a love for wood working and growing things in the garden.

Wayland is survived by his wife of 74 years, June; children, Jimmy (wife Judi) and Lisa (husband Charlie); daughter-in law, Cindy; grandchildren, Kimberly (husband Mike), Joe (wife Natasha), Sarah (husband Keith), Matthew (wife Kaci), Gena (husband Michael), Kevin (wife Meredith), Chad (wife Thera), Kyle (wife Mary); Kelli Tilton (husband Jason); great grandchildren, Caleb, Chloe, Cora, Joe Mac, Hadley, Wesley, Miranda, Samantha, Jocelyn, Luke, Ivy, Riggs, Dylan, Cadyn & Troy; brothers, Weldon, Bobby; and sister, Reba; and numerous nieces and nephews.
