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.
