Edward C. Roberts, 28, of Waterboro, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, December 29, 2018. Ed grew up in Waterboro and was a 2008 graduate of Massabesic High School. Following high school, he enlisted in the Marine Corps. While in the Marines, he was stationed in Hawaii, did two tours in Afghanistan and was honorably discharged in 2015.
Ed was the baby of his family and enjoyed growing up with three older sisters. He also enjoyed being on the family boat, particularly with his dad. Ed was an avid reader, particularly fantasy, anime and comics, and could easily read 100 books a year.
Growing up he played football and baseball, but ironically did not like watching any sports. One of his favorite childhood memories included going to baseball camp, particularly the part when his dad picked him up and bought him popcorn chicken at the end of each day. He had an infectious laugh and loved making people laugh.
Ed enjoyed playing video games on almost every console and electronic device ever made in his life. He also had a deep love / moderate obsession with cats. He would proudly wear any article of clothing with a cat on it, as well as shirts with funny and awkward sayings. Despite his general uniform of funny shirts and jeans, he also loved to clean up and wear a suit because he knew how handsome he was.
Ed was very proud of his Korean heritage and cherished his trips to Korea with his mother that he adored. He loved seeing his uncles, aunts and cousins in Korea and having them visit here as well.
Ed’s life was way too short but he will be remembered by those who knew him as a sweet, funny, helpful, and caring guy who only wanted to take care of the people around him.
Ed is pre-deceased by his father, Edward G. Roberts. He is survived by his mother, Myung Hwa (Kaye) Roberts and his sisters Alyson Roberts, Robyn Roberts (both of Attleboro, MA) and Jennyfer Roberts and his uncle Paul Roberts. He leaves behind many loved ones.
