Anthony A. Roth, 71, of Bolingbrook, IL, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, April 9, 2020.

Tony was born to Anthony W. and Helen L. Roth in 1948, in Milwaukee, WI. He was a member of St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Bolingbrook and volunteered as representative of the parish to the Diocese of Joliet. He received his Bachelor of Science in Human Relations in 1972 from Missouri Valley College, Marshall, MO and is listed in the Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges (1971-1972). He was also bestowed the Order of the Arrow Vigil honor.

He retired from the Boy Scouts of America in 2014 where he served in various positions throughout his career. Before retirement he held the position of Assistant Scout Executive, in charge of Program and Operations. He was registered as a certified 50-year Veteran by the BSA. He enjoyed teaching youth about character, knot making, crafting, and how to live the Scout Law. After retiring, he volunteered as a consultant for BSA Training Academy and Family Scouting. He had a great passion for music and was an exceptional Tenor Singer. He enjoyed telling jokes and had a great sense of humor. Hobbies included, knot making (rosaries), detailed embroidery, crafting for various organizations (including hospitals and homeless), and working crossword puzzles.

Tony was preceded in death by his parents. He was the loving husband of Paulette (Nee) Monteil for 46 years and the cherished father of Anthony (wife Robyn) of Ft. Wright, KY, and Ann M. (husband William) Connelly of South Elgin, IL. He was very proud of his three Grandchildren: William, Abigail and Aya; and has two sisters, Barbara M. and Patricia A., Greendale, WI along with a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
