Timothy W. Roberts
Timothy W. Roberts grew up in Dearborn Heights and graduated from Robichaud High School in 2003. Before entering funeral service, he worked in the beverage industry for Coca-Cola and Red Bull. After suffering a great loss himself, and being moved by the compassion of the funeral director that cared for his family, Tim decided to go back to school and become a funeral director in hopes of being able to pay it forward by serving the families of his community with the care and compassion that was shown to him. Tim graduated from the Wayne State University Mortuary Science Program in 2014, Magna Cum Laude. He received the Mary Louise Williams Science Award for demonstrating outstanding performance in chemistry, microbiology, pathology, and anatomy, as well as receiving numerous scholarships. Tim searched for a community to call home, and worked at a few different funeral homes before deciding to join the Rupp Funeral Home team and make Monroe County his home. Tim, his wife (Ally), their 2 daughters (Rylee and Piper), just recently moved to the County. Tim is involved with the Michigan Funeral Directors Association, National Funeral Directors Association, Michigan Embalmers Society, Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice, and the Mi-Mort Mass Fatality Response Team, as well as having received the CFSP, CCO, and CMFP designations. Tim has recently obtained his Ohio Funeral Directer/Embalmer license and Pre-Need Funeral license to have the ability to better serve families. Tim enjoys hunting, fishing, hockey, and spending time with family and friends.
