Father of the Personal Computer Dies

Funeral services for Dr. Ed Roberts will be held Monday in Cochran, where he was a family physician. He was a member of the first graduating class of Mercer School of Medicine.

He had lived in Wheeler County at the family home for a number of years, where he was active in local politics and carried on a computer enterprise.

He had been an associate of Bill Gates, and Roberts was considered as "the father of the personal computer."

Roberts was known and appreciated by many Treutlen Countians.

Amazing to think who might be your next door neighbor or neighbor down the road.
