Randy “Ace” Lynn Roberts, 62, of Beaver Crossing, Nebraska passed away suddenly on Friday, Aug. 3, 2018, at his home. 

He was born on Jan. 20, 1956 in Phillips, Neb., to Theodore and Ruth (Nelson) Roberts, the youngest of three children.

In his spare time, he loved fishing with his friends and was an avid fan of all sports. He had a great attitude and enjoyed the company of his friends. For a time, Ace also coached softball teams. 

He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Diane Rivas.

He is survived by his sister, Deb Cornelius of Grant, Neb.; nephews, Kody (Bonnie) Cornelius of Kearney, Neb., and Matthew (Jill) Brodbeck of Grand Island and a host of friends.
