Walter Roth was born on Sunday, September 26, 1920 in the family home near Avon, South Dakota to Theodore and Katharina Roth. He was baptized on November 7, 1920 and confirmed on June 28, 1936 at Emmaus Lutheran Church in Tripp. He attended school until the 8th grade at which time he began his lifelong career in farming. On June 7, 1942, Walter was united in marriage to Ella Wormsbecher at Emmaus Lutheran Church where they remain members to this day.
Walter had a passion and talent for farming. There was rarely a time when he wasn’t busy in the fields or tending his cattle at his farm 9 miles southwest of Tripp. He truly enjoyed driving big tractors, especially the 72 20 International which he continued to drive at the age of 90. Walter was always a farmer at heart with a great appreciation for overalls that extended beyond his active farming years.
Walter died on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at Bormann Manor in Parkston, South Dakota at the age of 93 years, 2 months, and 12 days.
He is survived by his wife of 71 years, Ella Roth; one daughter, Marcine (Allen) Schoenfish of Menno; two sons, LeRoy (Judy) Roth of Tripp and Myron (Diane) Roth of Tea; seven grandchildren, Ann (Justin) Verba, Scott (Terah) Schoenfish, Sherri Schoenfish, Steven Schoenfish, Ryan (Amanda) Roth, Fawn (Chris) Vogt, and Cody (Angie) Roth; fourteen great-grandchildren; one sister, Agnes (Marvin) Thum of Scotland; and one brother, Norbert (Diana) Roth of Yankton.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Theodore and Katharina Roth; two sisters, Lenora Schneider and Louise Wenzel; and five brothers, Elmer, Arnold, John, Albert, and Clarence Roth.
