Joseph Vincent Roberts

August 20, 1939 — December 21, 2022

Joseph Vincent Roberts, age 83, of Bel Air Maryland, passed away peacefully on December 21, 2022. Born in Dallas, Texas, he was the son of John and Alma (Cornell) Roberts. He worked as a mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service for over 50 years, as well as being a self-taught tree-man well known across Bel Air and Baltimore.


Joseph is survived by his daughters, Renee Gallacher, Angela Pugh and Michelle Cleary; son, Nick Roberts; grandchildren, Joseph Boone, Alex Gallacher, Brendan Siciliano, Aidan Siciliano, Ben Roberts and Addison Roberts; great grandchildren, Nicholas Shields, Ryan Boone and Olivia Gallacher; sister, Catherine Cavey; and brothers, Charles Roberts and Patrick Roberts. He is predeceased by his brothers John Roberts, Kenneth Roberts and Mickey Roberts, as well as his sister Rosalie Roberts.


Mr. Joe or Joe the Mailman as he was often known, loved the families on his mail routes as if they were his own. He truly loved being the neighborhood mail carrier for so many wonderful families throughout the years. He was also incredibly proud to own his own tree care business, helping so many people learn about trees while also providing jobs for many of the neighborhood kids, teaching them the value of a good days work. Joe loved nature, history, American Indian culture, and Bluegrass music. A lifetime parishioner of St Ignatius Parish in Hickory, he found great comfort in his church and his faith. Joe was a truly one-of-a-kind man and will sorely missed by all.


In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Arbor Day Foundation, 211 N. 12th Street, Lincoln, NE 68508.
