Mr. Roth was a true gentleman and an inspiration to all who met him. We are lucky to have known him and his legacy will live on in the generations that follow.

I hope that Clarence would be proud to know that who I have become was greatly influenced by who he was. That I think he was a great man!

He and his sibling were a family to be honored and respected for the values,ethics and life and religeous standards by which they lived.

We have been blessed and privileged to not only have known him but to be a member of his greater family.
