Frederick D Roth Jr. of Port Orange, Florida, formerly of Wheeling, WV, passed away on December 26th, 2019 at the age of 73. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Frederick D. Roth Sr. and Mary Shaunghnessy Roth, and most recently by his brother, Jack Roth.
Fred was an avid WVU sports fan. He and his brother attended over 40 years of WVU games with season tickets. Fred also enjoyed coaching basketball; he coached both boys’ and girls’ basketball at Corpus Christi Grade School.

    Shirley and Family, I really appreciated talking to you last week even though the news was so sad.

    It’s hard to believe how the years accumulate so quickly. I first met Fred over 65 years ago when we started 3rd grade together at Corpus Christi in Warwood. We became good friends as the home we had just moved into was about a half of a block from Fred’s home on Hazlett Avenue. I still remember my Mom asking me after the first day of school that year if I had met a boy named Fred Roth. Even after Fred moved to Romney Road, we saw each other often as we had most of the same classes at Central High. After college, we together frequently, usually watching the Mountaineers or Pittsburgh pro teams. I also remember once visiting him for a Marshall game when he lived in Huntington. Fred, another friend and I even drove to Atlanta for the 1972 Peach Bowl together for what turned out to be a rather lackluster performance by WVU.

    Although we didn’t see each other too often in recent years, it was always good to know that Fred was my good friend in WV or Florida.

    We certainly will be with you in thoughts and prayers this Saturday, especially when WVU plays Texas Tech that evening.

    Pat & Chuck Gruber
