Clifton Douglas Roberts, 48, passed away at home in Newport, OR. Clifton was born in Corvallis, OR on June 15, 1972 to Bobby Gene and Vanessa Roberts of Newport, OR. He grew up in Newport and attended Newport High School, class of 1990. For most of his life he was a commercial fisherman in Alaska and happiest when he was on the water in the Bering Sea. Although he was proud to be a fisherman, his greatest accomplishment was his family. He married Stephani Palmer May 2012 in Salem, OR and was a dedicated father to both his sons, Gerrad and Liam. He loved the outdoors, riding his motorcycle, and was an outstanding artist. He is survived by his wife, Stephani Roberts of Dallas, OR; sons, Gerrad Roberts of Estacada, OR and Liam Roberts of Dallas, OR; sisters, Shannon Goodell (Kameron) of Tidewater, OR and Rachel Snook (John) of Portland, OR; stepdaughters, Mckyla and Tayla Stevenson of Toledo, OR; stepbrother, Ryan Shirts (Christy) of Washington; stepsister, Kristin Shirts (Ron) of Washington; nephews, Tyson Sibley of Washington, Mason Sibley of Tidewater, OR, Justin and Brandon Shirts of Washington; and numerous cousins.
