Hi all,

If any of you folks have had the pleasure of knowing my father, Dave Roberts of Toronto, I'm sorry to tell you that he passed away Saturday afternoon after a mercifully short battle with ALS at the ripe old age of 82.

Dad had been in the hobby since he was a young man, having attended the first NMRA convention in 1953 as well as the 50th in 2003. He was National Contest Chairman for a time, as well as President of the Scarborough Model Railroaders and and avid member of the Lakeshore Model Railroaders Association. He was well known for his carbuilding and locomotive performance clinics, which often included a few surprises. ;)

Dad was a true craftsman and gentleman who was grateful for having made so many good friends through the hobby.

If you're near Toronto, please feel free to drop by the service Wednesday afternoon. Here's a link to the notice.

Steve Roberts
