Richard Stanley Roth Obituary
January 16, 1927 - May 26, 2016 A father, grandfather, husband, educator, counselor and lover of travel, music and opera - Richard S. Roth passed away peacefully Thursday evening, May 26th 2016, with his family by his side. Richard worked with the Los Angeles Unified School District for over 30 years, and was responsible for creating many innovative counseling programs and services in Los Angeles and around the world that continue to this day. Richard also worked tirelessly to help bring opera to Los Angeles through his work with The Opera Associates, and was a great lover and supporter of the LA Philharmonic and the theater. Richard loved nothing more than to sit and visit with friends when he was not traveling with his family. He will be sorely missed, but lived a good, full and dignified life. He will be buried alongside his wife, Johnnie Mae, at Westwood Village Memorial Park. Donations in honor and memory of Richard can be sent to The Topanga Montessori School's Richard S. Roth Scholarship Fund (1459 Old Topanga Canyon Rd., Topanga, CA 90290.)
