Gary Roberts

Gary Roberts, Stanbury Uniforms beloved CEO and great friend to many, passed away on April 18, 2017 after a prolonged battle with cancer.

Gary Roberts became President/CEO of Stanbury Uniforms in 1993. After a career as a band director, retail music store owner/operator and many years as a performing musician, Gary joined Stanbury as a sales representative, sales manager, and then President/CEO. “My love for marching band has been an integral part of my life from my childhood through today.”

Gary has always been drawn to pageantry with particular regard to uniforms for marching band and drum corps. He remembers attending a Michigan State Notre Dame football game as a child and what stuck with him was the magic created by the marching bands. The bands marched across the college campus prior to the game and he can remember running along side to keep up the entire way.

Years later, Gary performed at the halftime of the Super Bowl with his college band (back when they actually showed the halftime performances on TV) and he was always the guy making sure everyone’s hats were on straight! “So I guess it makes total sense that with a career as a band director, a musician, a businessman, and a lover of the marching arts that I would have the pleasure of leading Stanbury into what will be its 100 year anniversary next year.”

Gary’s four sons and three of his granddaughters have and are participants in high school and college band and drum corps.

Gary holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Southeast Missouri State University.
