Roberts, David Anthony "Dave" – 47 - of Antigonish and formerly of St Andrews, Antigonish County, passed away March 10, 2024, at the Victoria General Hospital in Halifax.

Born in Halifax, he was the son of Peter Roberts and Kathie (Tony) Awalt.

Dave was a loving and proud partner, father, stepfather, and grandfather. His hobbies were fishing, eagle watching, and going for "tours" – with no particular destination in search of lighthouses and oceans. Dave was a proud member of the St. Andrews Volunteer Fire Department and a valued employee with Mike’s Courier (Canada Post) until his health no longer allowed him that privilege.

Dave was happiest when he was around Mary and his children, and he always had a smile on his face that lit up the room.

Dave was a hardworking man that was extremely intelligent and dedicated to everything he put his mind to. Dave had an extremely hard battle with cancer which he fought with courage and optimism and still wore a smile and appreciated everyone who stood by him during his battles. 

Dave is survived by his loving partner and best friend, Mary Langille; daughters, Paige, Kayla, and their mother, Bernadette Roberts of St. Andrews; stepson, Shawn (Hannah) Langille of Halifax; stepdaughter, Olivia Langille (Lee) Tibbetts of Dartmouth; granddaughter, Sophia Langille; sister, Jennifer Roberts of Halifax; best friends, Patrick Dean and Tanya Welton; his and Mary’s feathered friends, Taz and Sammy and pride and joy fish aquariums.

Predeceased by maternal grandparents, William and Hope Shute, paternal grandparents, Murray and Edith Roberts.

Cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation by request. A celebration of his life will take place at a later date.

Special thanks to the V.G. Cancer Unit 8th Floor, Dr. Keating, St. Martha’s Hospital, VON, and EHS.

In Memoriam, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Cathy’s Place, or charity of your choice.

Dave's smile and quick wit and jokes will never be forgotten.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of C.L. Curry Funeral Home, Antigonish.  Online condolences:  www.clcurry.com
