  1. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I have many wonderful memories of growing up in the park with Mr. Roth and your family. He was a wonderful man and I am sure you will all miss him terribly. Our dad just passed away this past March and though we are sad to not have him here with us, the comfort that he is with the Lord and is at peace brings us much comfort. I pray that you too find that comfort in knowing he is with God and you will see him again one day.

  2. Rosemary

    I am very sorry to hear about the death of your dad, Charles… Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. Roth family, we are so sorry to hear about Charlie. He is a great man. He always had a smile on his face every time I saw him. May God bless him and keep him in his loving arms until you see him again.

    The Rathbun Family

  5. We were saddened to hear of Charlie’s passing. For years he was such a bright spot at Roosevelt Trailer Park. We had many talks about fishing and Pop McQuillin and the Pevny family would always eat much of his catch of bass. He was a real fisherman. Our thoughts go out to Clara and your daughters, who we would always watch come and go. God bless you all.

  6. We will all miss Charlie and his wonderful smile. May all your wonderful memories bring comfort to your special family.
