Hope his wife & kids knows since he was killed in a Company Truck & it was an accident there should be insurance that they are entitled & besides that I know that since the gas well fire in Oliver Springs that OSHA required all company's working in or around these gas & oil wells to carry workers com. Insurance up to 8Million. So if I was them & especially if I had 5 kids I would be getting me an lawyer & looking into it. His Brother Benny may just begin to see what it is like to work for the other man now & really hate to say this especially during this time but when you have cut other contractors neck & put them out of business by taking their work & causing other contractors to have to lay men off with families to feed & cause the heartaches & financial burdens that him & his company has cause by stealing work KRAMA will bite. This complain would be different but he does realize how his actions has hurt others & their families. But that is it the richer get richer & the poorer het poorer. Unlike him these ppl he has stole work from are struggling living in trailers while he lives happily ever after in a plush nice house with a big screen bigger than half their trailers. Yep I am a little sore cause my family is one of those that got laid off & now we can barely survie. So Sorry for the lost of life & yes human life is so very special. May God Bless his wife & kids & give them the will & strength to press on.

They should call Sal Varsalona in Clinton. He is one of the best lawyers in the state for these type of cases

They have to married if she has kids by him or for that matter any kids of his that he signed Birth Cert on is entitled this insurance there should be insurance on the truck & then workers Comp. Since he was the sole supporter of the household & now he is gone their lives as they once knew it is going to change. I just hope they get what is deserving to them. They need to at least check into things.

Yes John Roberts was agreat father to all 5 of his children. he was also very PROUD of them all Him and Sara had been together for the last 9 yrs they had two boys Trae and Aden, he also had three other children with someone else, but Sara was the only real mother those kids knew she loved them just as much as her own. Even though it's just been a few months they all are still stuggling with this awful lost. all I ask is PLEASE keep them in your thoughts and prayers they still have alot of healing to do and i hope Lake City will help them in anyway they can I love You all very much Momma and mamaw Kim
