Dear Judy, I just found out about Freddy, and I am very sorry. Freddy was one of my professors and mentors at Texas A&M. I donít know if you recall, but I used buy home-made whole wheat bread from you at A&M. Freddy touched the lives of so many people, and we will always cherish our memories of him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Kamyar Mahboub

Judy and girls, This is very hard for me to write because I only see Freddy as alive and laughing. I choose to remember him the way he was in McGehee High. I cannot know how much you all grieve for him but just remember, nothing is ever lost when you know where it is and we know Freddy is with his Jesus. I'm praying for peace beyond our understanding for you.

Judy and Family: I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed being friends with Freddie. I really did not know him well until we shared that apartment in Fayetteville while we were all students at the University of Arkansas. We had some great times together, especially when Mari came to visit from Ouachita. Through the years Mari and I have always appreciated both of you and your warm hospitality. We will miss Freddie, especially his sense of humor. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and will be forever.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Judy, Sarabeth, and Susan, I am so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how hard Freddy fought his fight. Ya'll have been in my prayers for many weeks and had no idea how serious his condition was. God had just laid your family on my heart. Judy, you may never know how influential you and Freddy were in my the midst of difficult circumstances. I think my children will always think of you as grandparents. I really do appreciate you and your family. I will uphold you in prayer in the days to come and pray that you are able to grieve and be comforted. I pray that God will wrap his comfort around you... I love each of you dearly and will be praying for the days ahead of you. Penny

Freddy was a most valued colleague who performed vitally important research for the Louisiana Transportation Research Center over many years. He was a tireless friend and supporter of LTRC serving as Chairman of the LTRC Foundation and as a member of the LTRC Policy Committee. He was an outstanding professional engineer, educator and a dear friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult time

Judy and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Freddie was such a kind person growing up. We always felt a kinship since we shared that less then wonderful after Chrismas birthday situation..his on the 29th and mine on the 28th. It sounds like he accomplished many, many good things and was much revered by those who knew him.

Dear Family, Dr. Roberts impacted my life in a very positive way. Not only did he provide me with a project that included a stipend to work on while I was in Grad school, but he also was a good leader that helped me be prepared to leave school and take on a positive role in our society. He seemed to love his work, and could talk about the day to day things just as easily. I am lucky to have had him as one of my professors I was a student in his very first class at LA Tech. I pray that God will provide you peace and comfort during this time.

I graduated in the spring of 2005 and was fortunate to have Dr. Roberts as my faculty advisor, capstone leader, and friend. I kept in touch with him after graduation and never expected to see this day. He definately deserved the Professor of the Century award, as he was without a doubt the most professional, caring, and admired faculty member in the program. He will be very missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Freddy was a wonderful advisor to our son Bart. Freddy gave Bart the support and encouragement needed to earn his degree. We will never forget. Given the opportunity, we would have voted for Freddy to receive every honor LA Tech gives. God bless.
Fredda M. Valencino left a message on March 19, 2007:
Dear Judy and Family, You all have my deepest heartfelt sympathy and love. When I learned that Freddy had gone Home, I immediately thought of verses from the Book of Sirach Catholic New American Bible~~~ 6:5 & 6~~~A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter;he who finds one finds a tresure. A faithful friend is beyond price, no sum can balance his worth. 37: 22~~~When a man is wise to his people's advantage, the fruits of his knowledge are enduring. 44: 14 &15~~~Their bodies are peacefully laid away, but their name lives on and on. At gatherings their wisdom is retold, and the assembly proclaims their praise. Freddy touched so many of our lives simply by the way in which he lived his. I will cherish every memory of him; I will miss his wit and laughter. With love, Fredda
Cousin Brian Roberts left a message on March 19, 2007:
My heart is heavy for your loss, but I rejoice in Uncle Freddy's homegoing. How wonderful to know that separation is but for a while, and you will be reunited one day. May good memories and God's comfort sustain you in the days ahead.
Tim Macaskill left a message on March 19, 2007:
My deepest sympathy to the whole Roberts family. As a former student of Dr. Roberts I would like to convey to his family that he left a very strong impression on all of us. He instilled excellence, courage, and initiative in his students which will undoubtedly live and thrive in all of us and in the work we produce and love. We will all remember his smile, laughter, and the pride and dedication he taught his students to have for their work. Kindest thoughts, Tim Macaskill Ruston native
