Waddell Edward Roberts IV was born in Orange County, California, on March 10, 1982, to Waddell III and Ann Roberts. Although too soon for us, not too soon for God, he was taken home on January 8, 2013.
Waddell was the youngest of six children. The father of one child, he was known as "Smoove, the Barber". Waddell was an old soul that enjoyed being a proud father, a true family man. He always loved hanging around family and friends, listening to his music, lifting weights, jet skiing, shooting pool, writing - poetry, music, and short stories.
Waddell was preceded in death by his father, Waddell Roberts III; grandparents, Waddell II and Teresa Roberts; grandfather, Luke Rachal; and grandmother, Sarah LaCour. Always in our hearts and souls, Waddell leaves many loved ones to cherish precious memories, including his one and only son, Waddell "Waddi" Roberts V. He is also survived by his mother, Ann R. Roberts; sisters, Gwendolyn (Victor), Aretina (Lorenzo), Caerisaa (Mike), Suswella and Regina (Gregory); best friend/brother, Darrell Williams; grandmother, Mildred Rachal; six aunts, Gloria, Mary Lee, Mary Jo, Janie, Helen and Nellie; eight uncles, Bobby, Julius, Luke, Joseph, Eddie Dean, Rickey, Dewayne and Joseph; 17 nieces and nephews; 10 great nieces and nephews; numerous cousins; and a host of friends who loved him dearly.
