Todd Leonard Roth, age 57, of Shipman, VA died unexpectedly late Wednesday
evening, February 23, 2022.
Born in Allentown, PA on December 9, 1964, he was the son of the late Willard
M. Roth and Carolyn J. (Fehnel) Roth.
Todd worked for almost 38 years as a drywall installer and finisher, a master and
artist of his trade. He and his wife, Meredith, successfully owned and operated
Roth Remodeling Solutions, LLC in the Poconos region of Pennsylvania. From a
very young age, Todd’s father taught him skills in masonry, carpentry, and
general building construction that proved to be invaluable during his life in his
work and in constructing his own family homes.
Todd was a member of the Lovingston congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
His faith from youth up until his death was a cornerstone of his decision making
and who he was as a person. He was appreciated by his wife, family and friends
for being able to make us laugh, being consistent in his devotion to us, and
working harder than most to make others happy. Todd enjoyed his ministry,
telling others about his God Jehovah, and doing volunteer construction work on
Kingdom Hall projects with his wife. His service and devotion was genuine.
In addition to the above, Todd lived for the great outdoors. He was an avid deer
hunter, fisherman, golfer, and loved camping, kayaking and clamming. He and
his wife moved to Virginia in August, 2021 and were restoring a farmhouse built
in 1800. Up until the day he passed, he spoke to every one he knew of finishing
the home and raising chickens, cattle, and having a big garden.
Todd is survived by his wife, Meredith P. (Scheib) Roth, and they were married
for five years and four months (October 22, 2016). He is also survived by his
mother, Carolyn J. Roth of Swoyersville, PA; two daughters: Rebecca J. Roth of
Kunkletown, PA and Rachel J. Roth of Bloomfield, NJ; one step-daughter,
Meghan Knaus of Berwick, PA; two brothers: Randy Roth of Saylorsburg, PA and
Troy Roth of Swoyersville, PA; and two grandchildren: Travis Roth (age 5) and
Kaylani Roth-Liebau (age 3 months). He was preceded in death by his father,
Willard M. Roth.
