It is with profound sadness that the choir responds to the unexpected death of Reverend Wayne Roberts.
Tributes for Reverend Wayne Roberts
Wayne Roberts was a mainstay of the ministry in the Denbigh area for many years. The choir in attendance with him on very many occasions, both joyous and sad.
Wayne was well-respected and liked by the local community. He conducted many of the Town and County Councillor’s Civic Services. The choir also invited to take part on many such proud occasions.
We will not forget his poignant services at the funerals of former choir members.
More than a Minister
But Wayne was more than just a Minister. He was a friend to everyone who was fortunate enough to make his acquaintance.
Similarly, he was caring, compassionate, understanding and non-judgemental. He gave so freely of his time to care for others in their time of need.
A sentiment echoed freely this week from all who knew Wayne.
Also, I was fortunate to be a friend of Wayne’s late father, Emyr Roberts.
He served as Chairman of both the North Wales Association of Male Voice Choirs and its’ 1,000 Voices Organising Committee. I enjoyed travelling to meetings with him.
Wayne inherited those admirable qualities from Emyr and his mother, Jean.
Most of all, the immediate communities of Denbigh, and the wider community of North Wales, are very much the poorer for Wayne’s passing.
Furthermore, the choir wishes to extend deepest sympathy and condolences to Wayne’s family at this very sad time.
