Jud Orendorff Roberts, a 58-year resident of San Marino, CA, passed away peacefully at his home on April 24, 2021. Born and raised in Los Angeles, he was 95 years old.
Jud was an avid outdoorsman, learning as a boy to fish, hunt, snow ski, and water ski at Lake Arrowhead with his brother, Frank.
At 17, Jud enlisted in the Navy and served in the Pacific during World War II.
After returning from the war, he attended Northern Arizona State Teachers College — and transferred to USC, where he earned a degree in 1949. Jud was a member of Delta Tau Delta fraternity, and maintained lifelong friendships with many college friends.
In 1952, he married Marilyn Hubbard of Hollywood. As a condition of the engagement, she required that he teach her to ski, which provided a lifetime of travel experiences for them and their family. Jud and Marilyn were both known as fun lovers who made friends easily. They were married 60 years until her passing in 2012.
