Alvin Roberson Obituary

Alvin L. Roberson, 91, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 2, 2023 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Savannah after a brief illness.

Alvin was born on April 1, 1932 in Hortense to the late,  Albert and Allie Fay Strickland Roberson.  He spent his formative years in Waycross before being drafted into the United States Army where he served his country in Germany and Austria.  After returning home to the states, Alvin moved to Jacksonville where he worked for the City of Jacksonville overseeing the maintenance of the Gator Bowl Stadium.  In 1972, Alvin relocated back to Hortense and began a career with Brunswick Pulp and Paper from which he retired in 1997.  He was a longtime member of Satilla Baptist Church and when he wasn’t working, Alvin enjoyed riding his motorcycle and working on things around the house, “tinkering,” as he would say.

In addition to his parents, his wife, Gloria Davis Roberson; his two sons, Michael L. Roberson and Albert P. Roberson and two sisters, Loretta Moody and Hazle Jacobs, all preceded him in death.

Survivors include  his two sons, Charles Roberson and wife, Angie of Landis, North Carolina and Joseph Roberson of Jesup and three grandchildren, Justin Roberson, Jessica Sapp and Cody Roberson. Several great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family members also survive.

Visitation will be from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. on Monday, December 4, 2023 at Howard & Jones Funeral Home in Jesup.

Graveside funeral services will be at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, December 5, 2023 at Hortense Cemetery with Reverend Stanley Todd officiating.

Active pallbearers will be Scott Moody, Wayne Davis, Len Davis, Codey Roberson, Justin Roberson and Cain Roberson.
