Amesbury, MA - Martin B. Roberts, age 89, of Amesbury, died Saturday evening, August 24, 2019, at Maplewood Center Nursing Home in Amesbury.

Born in Salem, Mass., December 21, 1929, he was the son of the late Frederick H. and Bertha (Fraser) Brown. Martin grew up in Salem, where he attended Salem High School.

He entered the United States Army on February 17, 1948, and after fulfilling several tours of duty, was honorably discharged on June 30, 1968, with the rank of Sergeant First Class. He was the proud recipient of the National Defense Service Medal (1st Oak Leaf Cluster), the Good Conduct Medal (4th award), the Vietnam Service Medal, and the Vietnam Campaign Medal with Device-60.

After his retirement from the Military, Martin started his second career, working for Raytheon as an electronic technician in their Missile Testing division.

He was an avid fisherman, was a member of the Rod and Gun Club, as well as a longtime member of the V.F.W.

His survivors include his wife, Sandra J. (Conway) Roberts of Mt. Vernon, Wash.; five children, Bruce Roberts, Linda Van Alstine, who has been his dedicated caretaker over the past years, Teresa Allison, Sheila Roberts, and Kenneth Roberts; along with 20 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; extended family and dear friends. He has been their guiding light, their mentor, their supporter, the one they could always count on. His love will be with them forever.

By his request, there will be no services. Just remember him in his own special way, share his life stories and share the kindness he has showed to others throughout his life. Keep his memories alive and carry on valiantly!

Arrangements were by Paul C. Rogers Family Funeral Home, 2 Hillside Avenue, Amesbury.
