Pfeiffer athletics has lost one of our biggest fans in Lester “Snake” Roberts. We send his family our deepest sympathies during this time of sadness, but may each of us smile for the great memories that Snake gave us.

It is with great sadness that Pfeiffer University announces the death on July 31 of Lester “Snake” Roberts, 92, who served as the head of security on the Misenheimer campus, for 27 years before retiring from that position in 1994. Unable to stay idle, though, he signed on as the head of security at nearby Uwharrie Point, serving 20 years there before retiring for good. Beloved in both communities, he was a respected officer of the law, enriching the lives of students, colleagues and friends with his sense of humor and humble character.
Roberts grew up in McAdenville and Belmont, NC, the youngest of ten children. He enlisted in the US Navy at the age of 17, and after his stint in the service, he joined the Gastonia, NC police force. He trained on the job and spent eight of his 15 years on the force as a motorcycle cop in the traffic division. Until just the last couple of years, local residents could still spot Roberts riding his white 1966 police special Harley Davidson around Misenheimer and Richfield.
In 1967, he was invited to become the head of security at Pfeiffer. He also coached tennis at the College for several years. Most Pfeiffer students between 1967 and 1994 have a “Snake story” about the man who made a memorable impact on their lives. When Roberts retired from Pfeiffer, the Lester F. “Snake” Roberts Endowed Scholarship was established in his honor, to support students from Stanly County who are majoring in criminal justice.
Roberts is survived by a son Ryan Roberts and wife Lisa of New London, NC, and a daughter Terri Roberts Errington of Simpsonville, SC. He had six grandchildren: Justin Roberts (Sarah), Jason Roberts (Erika), Jamie Roberts (Brittany), Jessica Butner (Brandon), Matt Errington, and Erin Errington ’18, and 9 great grandchildren. His wife, Joyce, passed away in 2006.
His funeral service will be at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, August 3, 2020 in the Stanly Funeral Home Chapel, Albemarle, NC. Rev. Sandy Young will officiate. Burial will follow in the Wesley Chapel UMC cemetery. The family will receive friends on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 2nd, from 5 until 7 p.m. at Stanly Funeral and Cremation Care of Albemarle. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to the Lester F. “Snake” Roberts Endowed Scholarship or the Athletic Department at Pfeiffer University c/o Adv. Office PO Box 960, Misenheimer, NC 28109.

The Pfeiffer University Athletic Department is saddened and angered by the recent acts of racism and social injustice. We are committed to providing an inclusive and diverse community that refuses to stand silent and actively looks for ways to educate, serve, and promote dialogue among our student-athletes in a way that makes a difference. Acts of hatred and acts that represent ignorance in our country – especially those that reveal underlying racist attitudes and systems – are contrary to our convictions. We will continue to improve in the area of fostering an environment wherein all feel welcome and safe. A committee has been meeting this summer to promote times on campus, set aside for our mutual growth, listening, and learning in inter-racial and inter-cultural understanding and relations. Now is the time for change, liberty, and justice.

How can you have four Baseball players make the All-ECAC Team and not have the team make the ECAC tournament? Not to mention a 19 game winning streak and an overall record of 31-7. Can anyone explain this logic?
