Henry J. Roberts 75, a twenty-nine year resident of Keene, NH, passed away peacefully on August 2, 2017 at the Westwood Care and Rehabilitation Center, Main Street, Keene.

He was born in Brattleboro, Vermont on October 21, 1941, the son of Charles Henry and Arlene Linda (Davis) Roberts. He grew up in Brattleboro and attended local schools.

Henry resided in Hinsdale, NH for many years where he worked for over 25 years as a boiler operator with Robertson Paper Mill in Hinsdale. He later worked for People's Linen Company in Keene, retiring in 2003.

Henry enjoyed bird watching and feeding the birds outside of his window at Westwood. He had a special love of cats, especially his cat "Bones". He also loved all types of animals as well. He enjoyed bowling, and also enjoyed going to Walmart every day on the Friendly Bus.

Henry was a man of simple pleasures, enjoying all of the simple things in life. He was always smiling and enjoying life for what it was.

He will be greatly missed by many, especially his sisters, Grace Smart of Keene and Charlotte Jones of Springfield, VA; his nieces and nephews, Marvin Smart of Winchester, NH, Deborah Morton of Charlotte, NC, Michael Smart of Vonore, TN, Scot Smart of North Swanzey, NH; and several great-nieces and great-nephews.
