In loving memory of Geoffrey Hayden Roberts “Buddha” Geoff Roberts, age 45, passed away unexpectedly in the afternoon on January 16, 2022.

He was born on September 6, 1976 to Sue Clark and the late Hale E. Roberts Jr. in Staten Island, NY. Geoff was truly one of a kind. He was known for his long beard, wise soul, kind spirit, gentle heart, and love for good music. He always put others before himself and was a reliable friend to all. His smile and laugh brought joy to others. Geoff enjoyed playing the bongos, exploring the world by scuba diving, attending Mississippi State sporting events, attending concerts, being in the presence of family and friends, and vacationing to the beach.
