Gareth Roberts was a nurse who worked across the Cardiff and Vale health board area. He passed away on Saturday 12 April 2020.
Gareth Roberts devoted his life to caring for people, working as a nurse for over 40 years. When concerns about the pandemic escalated, he selflessly took on extra shifts to help cover the wards at Llandough Hospital near Penarth.
He is described as a loving husband, father and grandfather who was well-known for his dry sense of humour. It’s said ‘cariad’, the Welsh word for love, was his favourite word.
He loved his job and paid the ultimate sacrifice looking after the lives of others. For that, we will always remember him.
Our thoughts go out to his family.
We will remember Gareth Roberts.
