Ted Andrew Roberts returned to his Father in Heaven on November 13th, 2021. He was born in Vancouver, Washington on the 23rd of October, 1972. He is the son of Bing Roberts and the late Kati Shawcross Roberts. He spent his youth blazing bike trails in the woods of his own backyard in Battle Ground, Washington. His other adventures in those years included running track and participating in scouting adventures. In 1990 his family moved to Rigby, Idaho where he attended Rigby High School for his Senior year. During his high school years he played tennis and did photography for the school newspaper. He graduated from Rigby High in the class of 1991. He became quite a skilled amateur photographer and found joy in this hobby throughout his life. He also loved going to dances and listening to great music. He was known to jam out to the hits from the 1980's and 90's.
In 1992, he was called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Tuxtla Gutierrez Mexico mission. After an illness he was transferred to the Mexico City, East mission where he loved and served the people there. He returned home on June 27th of 1994 and continued to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with friends and colleagues throughout his life. He loved speaking the Spanish language at every opportunity he got.
He met his wife, Nicolett Ami Wilcox in Rexburg, Idaho and they married in the Seattle, Washington Temple on December 16th, 1995. Ted was a master craftsman. He learned under the tutelage of his father, and also worked with his brothers at Lost River Log Specialists in Idaho and with Battleridge Builders in Montana. He became a sought after artist-builder for projects ranging from cabinetry, log furniture, intricate staircases and many finely crafted logwork homes. He was also known for the technical roof systems and siding that he was a master of. He had a love of learning which was evident in all of his many hobbies (whether it was working with bicycles, ATVs or firearms, etc.). He became extremely knowledgeable and proficient in all he set his mind to.
Ted and Nicolett were blessed with 6 children. They raised their family for many years in Rigby, Idaho. When the opportunity arose, they moved their family to Three Forks, Montana to build a homestead where their kids have been able to raise animals and live the country life they always dreamed of.
