William “Buddy” Roberson was born March 23, 1917 to the late Emma Hines Roberson and Adolphus Roberson in South Carolina. He peacefully departed this life on August 3, 2018. God called him home at the amazing age of 101. He was a faithful member of Saint Mark Church of Christ (Disciples of Christ) for many, many years, while also serving on the Deacon board for a long while. Outside of his dedication to the church, he was a hard worker, who took pride in working with his hands.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Willie Mae Roberson; his daughters Cora Lee Roberson and Marilyn Roberson; his four brothers, and eight sisters. He leaves to mourn his passing his daughter Jeanette McClary of Suitland, MD; his sister Claudia Roberson Davis of Columbia, South Carolina; a host of nieces and nephews, foster children, grandchildren, great-grand children, and other family members and friends. Amongst them, two devoted nieces-Mae Helen Gibbs and Yvonne Samuels, and one devoted foster daughter-Thomasine King.
