James Kenneth "Kenny" Roberts, Jr. was born January 16, 1951 to James K. and Vera (Schaeffer) Roberts in Fort Dodge. He attended schools here. In 1976, he was united in marriage to Teresa "Terry" Bige. The couple later divorced. Kenny was a truck driver his entire career working at various places including Mead Containers, Smithway Trucking, and as an owner operator. In 2009, Kenny was reborn as the recipient of a double lung transplant. We were all inspired by his courage to overcome. He could usually be found working on a car or some project in his garage, drinking coffee and visiting with friends and family. Kenny will be greatly missed.
Memorials may be left to the discretion of the family.

I've known Kenny forever. As kids, I still picture him riding his bike, drinking pepsis, and working on cars. When we visited Iowa, my husband and I would stop by and have coffee and catch up on the news and share some funny stories. Old friend, good bye til we meet again. Linda Hottman Staley

I'm sorry to hear of Kenny's passing. Have known him for over 60years. My prayers and love to his family.

I met Kenny when I was 14 and would routinely jump in the Mead Container truck with him at Rockwell City and head for Denison or Dakota City, NE. Lots of mile and good times. I left Rockwell City in 1981 for Manchester and later Grinnell . We always stayed in touch. A phone call or I would stop and we would chat and tell stories when I was visiting the area. 45 years a great friend. He will be missed by many.

Sorry for your loss. Kenny ( Trapper) and I drove alot of miles together when he drove for Brazo Transport. I was a new driver and he taught me alot about trucking. May he RIP.
