Beau Kilian Roberts passed away July 23, 2020. In fear and desperation, he chose to take his own life to escape the chaos of today’s world. He was born June 28, 1993 to Dave and Joan Roberts. Beau attended school in Savannah and his happiest times were when he was a student at Benedictine Military School. He worked at the Georgia Ports Authority with ambitions to grow. Beau enjoyed hunting, walking the family dog “Charley Girl”, a good cigar and a meal at Mrs. Wilkes.
He is survived by his parents, brother Jake, Aunts Patty Hildreth (Jim), Melanie Willoughby (Jimbo), Josetta White (Todd), Michelle Roberts (Jason), Uncle Mark Burns and cousins, Matt Dillon, Taylor Willoughby, Blake Vickroy, Breanna Roberts and Drew Roberts, Maggie Burns and Emily Burns as well as friends that were like family, Menzanna and Jim Blakley, Mike Carbo and his forever babysitters Brooke and Danny Clarke and Hailey Blakley Grene. Beau cherished the many friendships he made through the Knights of Columbus 631, of which he was a member. He was also a member of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee.
Beau had a big heart and his family will miss him dearly, but know he is at peace now.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am Tuesday, July 28 at Blessed Sacrament Church. Remembrances can be made to Benedictine Military School.

I knew Beau at Benedictine. I graduated in 2011 but I remember him as being such a nice guy and the life of the crowd. I am so truly sorry and i pray for him and his family. I work with his cousin Blake. Being at BC made us all brothers and indeed he is gone too soon. He definitely fits the old moniker of "a friend at BC is a friend for life." Rest in peace brother. Heaven has gained another angel for sure.
- Stephen C. Grotto II, Savannah, GA

We mourn with y’all the loss of such a great young man. We are so fortunate to have known Beau. We love that Beau enjoyed driving his cousin Zack’s, Tahoe! He worked with us one summer and was a pure delight. We were happy to have gotten to know him better during that time. Our last memory of him was a confident Beau, with a giant smile, smoking a cigar and talking about the job he loved so much, as we celebrated at the Robert’s St. Patrick’s Day Party at Tybee, 2020. We will keep your family in our prayers... for strength and comfort in the coming months and years. We are so sorry for your extreme loss. We love y’all.

Joan, Dave and Jake, What a very sad time this is for y’all. The pain unbearable. I know that there is nothing anyone can say that will take that grief away. I hope time, the help of God and the love of family and friends will help comfort all of you. After we learned of this awful tragedy, Jackson and I were riding in the car and he was in deep thought and says “MiMi you know I always threw the football with Beau every Christmas Eve, that was fun”. Joan, Dave and Jake, There are going to be so many people remembering back on a special event or moment they shared with Beau. These will be simple meaningful memories that mean so much to that person that was able to share time with your Beau. It must really make you smile within to hear so many people say how sweet and kind your Beau was. All of you will be in our prayers. Della and Steve
