Kenneth Wayne Roberts

June 26, 1964 - February 21, 2024

Kenneth Wayne Roberts, age 59, passed away unexpectedly at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans on Wednesday, February 21, 2024. He was born in McComb, Mississippi on June 26, 1964 to Sondra McGehee Reed and Alton “Shug” Roberts. 

Ken was a graduate of Parklane Academy and Louisiana State University where he was a member of Kappa Alpha Order. As a resident of Baton Rouge and an entrepreneur at heart, his passion for the Tigers led to the creation of Tiger Mania Inc., a retail store serving the LSU community. In addition, he was a member of the Kentwood Rotary club and Tiger Athletic Foundation. Ken was a loving husband of 26 years to his wife, Kasey. A father and step father, Ken considered his children as one of his greatest achievements. He devoted his life to their happiness. Ken spent much of his time outdoors at his property in Kentwood, which was his pride and joy. He hosted many sports-viewing events and Bourre nights with his core group of friends at “The Shop”. He was known for his wit, playful sarcasm and loyalty. He was a private man, but known for his unending generosity that could be seen in the care of his family and closest friends. 

He is survived by his wife, Kasey Kirby Roberts; children Michael Preston Roberts and Halle Jane Roberts; step-daughter, Kassidy Shea Warwick; grandchildren Cayden Grace, Emma Hingle, Cooper Hingle, mother Sandy Reed; brother Brent Reed and wife, Tara; sister Cyndi Reed Miller; family friend Earl Wall; mother-in-law, Veronica Kirby, sisters-in-law, Kathy Kirby, Kary Kirby, brother-in-law, Clint Kirby, as well as beloved cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends. 

Preceded in death by his brother Russell Roberts; his father Alton “Shug” Roberts; stepfather, AW Reed, and father-in-law, Shelby Kirby.
