Tuley High School and received a BS Degree in Public Accounting from DePaul University.  In 1942, he enlisted in the United States Army Air Force and was trained as an aerial gunner and radio operator.  In 1944, he was assigned to the 490th Bombardment Group, 3rd Air Division, US Eighth Air Force, stationed in the ancient Saxon village of Eye, Suffolk, England.  He was proud of his service in what would become known as the “Mighty Eighth”, the most powerful aerial force ever assembled, and his wartime service to this country.  After discharge from the Army, he became a Certified Public Accountant in 1948, moved to Louisville and married Doris Lorber Fuenfer in 1949.  He was a partner in the Louis T. Roth and Company accounting firms for 57 years and a life-long member of Keneseth Israel Congregation.

He loved his family and his country, and instilled in his children and grandchildren the strong moral, patriotic and religious values that he demonstrated throughout his entire life, and this is his enduring legacy.  The family would like to express our appreciation to the many caregivers and physicians who attended to our father for their compassionate care over the course of many years, especially Dr.’s C.
