For those who may have missed this, Don Roth, of our very own Don's Drive-In, passed away earlier this month.
Donald W. Roth
Donald Roth of Jupiter, Fla., passed away on Nov. 25, 2009, at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. Mr. Roth was born in Newark, N.J., on April 28, 1926. He attended Newark Academy, The Pingry School, and The University of Richmond, Va. Prior to college, he served for two years in the U.S. Army Air Corps.
In 1954, he opened Don's Drive-In, Livingston, N.J., which became a fixture on South Orange Avenue for over 40 years, serving his famous burgers to loyal customers. In subsequent years, the business expanded to include a pastry shop and gourmet deli. Don was passionate about the game of golf. He also loved reading, history, classical music, old movies, a good cigar, and will be remembered by all for his great sense of humor.
He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Carol; his six children, S. Robert Roth, Alyssa Nollman, Carolyn Puleo, Jaclyn Roth, Jon Roth and Bobbi Roth, and eight grandchildren, all who loved him deeply. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
