Rev. Jack Daniel Roth was born Dec. 19, 1929 in Little Rock, Ark., to Effie Marie Montgomery Roth and Daniel Anthony Roth. He grew up on a rice farm during the depression and was a graduate of Stuttgart High School (1948) in Stuttgart, Ark., Texas Christian University (1955) and Brite Divinity School (1958) in Fort Worth, Texas.

Jack was a proud veteran and served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War and was stationed in San Rafael, Calif., from 1950-’52. To save money for his education, during the ‘50s, he also worked at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tenn., and the Shamrock Hotel in Houston. He loved to share tales of the celebrities and musicians he met while working at the hotels.

After graduating from Brite, Jack was  minister of education for several Disciples of Christ churches: Central Christian, Dallas; First Christian, Amarillo; First Christian, Arkansas City, Kan.; Hickman Mills Christian Church, Kansas City, Kan.; and Lindenwood Christian, Memphis, Tenn.

When Jack and wife Margaret Ingle moved to Little Rock in 1976, Jack worked for the Little Rock Housing Authority until he retired and moved to Fort Worth in 1994. There he worked for MHMR/Guardianship Services of Tarrant County and volunteered at Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 54 years, Margaret Ingle Roth (1932-2012); parents, Daniel Anthony Roth (1901-’70) and Effie Marie Roth (1906-’81).
