Courtney Eugene “Corky” Roberts, 73, died Friday morning March 26, 2021 at Southwest Medical Center in Liberal, Kansas. He was born on September 24, 1947 to Ruby Eleanor (Simpson) and Cecil Frances Roberts in Garden City, Kansas. He married Jackie Garrison on April 26, 1969 at the Sublette Christian Church and from this union three sons were born.
Corky was never known as someone to turn down a good time, pass up a trip to the casino, miss a nearby auction, have a dull Saturday night or miss out on the Sunday afternoon beer meeting in the shop. Stories and adventures of Corky will fill many people with utter disbelief and uncontrollable fits of laughter. Please raise a glass to the many memories of Corky as he left this world with a life lived in full.
He is survived by his sons, Brian Roberts and wife Pamela of Satanta, KS, and Kyle Roberts and wife Amanda of Healy, KS; twelve grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and one brother, Dave Roberts and companion Pam Powers of Ponca City, OK.
He is preceded in death by his son, Tracy Roberts; and parents, Cecil and Ruby Roberts.
