Kelly was born and raised in the community he still calls home today. After graduating from Forest Lake High School in 1991 and earning an Associates Degree in business, Kelly joined his family in operating Forest Lake Floral and Garden Center. It was Kelly’s idea to bring a locally owned funeral home to Forest Lake, which he and his brothers established in 2005. Kelly is a Certified Funeral Celebrant, a graduate of the Academy of Advanced Funeral Planning, and a Licensed Life Insurance Agent. Kelly married his high school sweetheart, Chaleece and has two sons, Coleten and Landen and daughter, Olivia. They are life long members of Faith Lutheran Church in Forest Lake, and Kelly is member of the Forest Lake Rotary and is on the board of directors of the Forest Lake Hockey Association. Kelly enjoys playing hockey, running, biking and boating when he is away from the funeral home.
Colby was born and raised in Rosemount, Minnesota. He knew funeral service was the right profession for him after shadowing a funeral director for a high school class. Colby attended all four years of college at the University of Minnesota and graduated in December of 2013. He has been with the Roberts Family Funeral home since January 2014 and has found his niche in serving a dignified and proud community.
Away from the funeral home Colby enjoys spending time with his family, friends, and his girlfriend, Kelly. Colby and Kelly enjoy going to concerts, cheering on the Gophers, and spending as many weekends as possible up in Breezy Point.
