I’m saddened to tell you that Gerald Roth ’58 passed away November 10th, 2018 in San Diego, California. He is survived by his wife, Elaine, as well as his daughter, two sons, stepsons, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was born on October 22nd, 1929 in Taylorville, Illinois. After graduating from Illinois Wesleyan University, he held a career in Data Processing, founded a computer-onto-microfilm service, created a specialty lighting business (Bulbman Inc.), and retired in 1996. Gerald was one of the first small-business owners to establish a program allowing employees to own stock and one of the first to hire people with physical disabilities. He was a firm believer in equal opportunities for everybody and humanitarian benefits for his employees.
