Henry Roby Lesesne, III, age 22, of Boone, passed away October 20, 2020 at his residence.

Roby was the most loving and considerate son, brother, and grandson who always put his family first. From a young age, Roby had a special love for the Lord, His word, and enjoyed sharing his faith with others all over the world. As he grew older, he loved deep conversations with friends and strangers alike. He was open-minded, kind-hearted, and truly sincere about each relationship he had. He loved playing the piano and guitar, drawing, driving on the Parkway, playing video games, reading books, and taking care of others. He was forever generous with his love, time, care, and resources. He was so funny, smart, inquisitive, hard-working, compassionate, and creative. Roby will always be loved and missed more than words could ever express.
