James G. Roberts ’43

Published in Mar. 24, 2004, issue

Jim died unexpectedly Jan. 9, 2004; he was 82. A native of Akron, Ohio, he lived almost all his life in that city.

Jim attended Culver Academy and the U. of Akron before enrolling at Princeton, from which he graduated summa cum laude. He attended medical school at Penn, then served as a surgeon in the Army.

After his discharge, Jim returned to Akron and a residency in orthopedic surgery. In 1953, he joined his father in practice and also participated in training many generations of orthopedic surgeons at Akron General and Akron Children's Hospitals.

Jim's main interests outside his profession were photography and sailing.

Jim's wife of 53 years, Jody, predeceased him in 1999. Survivors include three sons, James G. Jr., John D., and Richard L.; and seven grandchildren. To the entire family, we extend our most heartfelt condolences.
