Arthur Hugh "Huey" Roberts, 73, of Cherokee passed away Thursday, November 19, 2015.  Born January 19, 1942 to the late Fred William Roberts and Alice Annalou Norvell Roberts.

Arthur Hugh "Huey" Roberts was a Christian man who loved to fish and hunt.  He was a professional wrestler in his younger years often partnering with Josh Squirrel, and a proficient house painter in his later years with wife Cathy Roberts.  Huey loved family, food, and a good joke and he knew many of them.  Huey was always ready to lend a helping hand, crack a joke or go hunting or fishing.  He will be sorely missed in the mountains, on the streams, and in the councils of his people and family.

Huey is survived by his wife Cathy Drye Roberts; one brother, Paul Roberts of Alabama; two sisters, Gladys Roberts Penick of Chapel Hill, Tennessee and Betty Roberts Birchfield of Bryson City; four grandchildren, J.R. Hornbuckle, Candace Hornbuckle, Nathaniel Shinkman, and Kaitlyn Roberts; several neices and nephews also survive.

In addition to his parents Huey was preceded in death by his first wife, Hazel Welch Roberts; one son, Edgar "Eddie" Roberts; two daughters, Allison Shinkman and Judy Hornbuckle; one granddaughter, Tamara Shinkman; one brother, George Roberts; and two sisters, Lodeema Roberts Collette and Mary Roberts Murphy.

Visitation will be held on Sunday, November 22, 2015 at Bethabara Baptist Church from 6 pm until midnight.  Funeral services will be held on Monday, November 23, 2015 at 1 pm at the Bethabara Baptist Church with Revs. Phillip Ellington and Greg Morgan officiating.  Burial will follow at the Birdtown Cemetery.  Pallbearers will be grandsons and nephews.
