David A. “Dave” Roberts, age 53, of Toledo, passed away Friday, March 26, 2021 at Mercy St. Vincent Hospital surrounded by his loving family. He was born on July 21, 1967 to Charles Johnson and Beverly Roberts in Dearborn, Michigan. Dave worked in outside sales at Universal Tool and Bax Global for many years. He was an avid sports fan, especially of football. Dave was a diehard fan of the Detroit Lions and the Michigan Wolverines. He also followed the Detroit Tigers. Dave was known as “The Mayor” to the neighborhood, making it his job to know everyone in and around the blocks. He was also known as “The Moneyman” as they all would play fantasy football together.
