James W. “Jimmy” Roth, 54
February 22, 2021
James W. “Jimmy” Roth, 54, of Lititz, PA passed away unexpectedly Monday February 22, 2021 at UPMC Lititz. He was born February 22, 1967 in Lancaster.
A 1985 graduate of Warwick High School, James went on to work as a welder with various local companies. James was an avid motorcycle racing enthusiast and was a member of WERA for over 30 years. He helped at many MotoAmerica Events and N2 track days. His passion for motorcycle racing took him all over the country.
James was a member of Lititz Church of the Brethren and was the caretaker there for many years. Through those efforts, he helped many Warwick students with community service work. He will forever be remembered as a man who always lent a helping hand. He was hard working, had a sarcastic yet funny sense of humor, and was always willing to pass along a good joke. His family will dearly miss his presence and will forever cherish the memories created with him.
He is survived by his father: Vincent (Carolyn) Roth; his mother: Hyla (Howard) Mowrer; a brother: Kevin (Denise) Roth; three children: Steven Roth, Alexis Roth, and Joanna Roth; two nephews: Shawn Roth and David Roth; his former wife: Kerry Farmer; six aunts; as well as two grandpuppies: Gixxer and Charli. He was preceded in death by a brother: Douglas Roth.
Services are being held privately and at the convenience of the family. A celebration of life service for James will occur at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in honor of James can be made to the Roadracing World Action Fund, P.O. Box 1428 Lake Elsinore, CA 92531.

Dear Mr and Mrs Roth- such deep condolences for your loss. Jimmy and I were friends from middle school until well after graduating. I spent much time at your home. Jimmy was like a brother and always there for whatever you or anyone needed. But was the best friend anyone could ever hope to have. That smile of his would light up the room and he always had a hug for you. As life often does- you lose touch after awhile. He was and will always remain in my heart. Prayers for you and his family. He lived and loved his life and was able to pursue so many of his passions. He will be forever missed. The memories I have, as many do- will be timeless. Ride the sky’s forever Jimmy. 😘❤️julie Strohm (maiden – Nagle)
Would be grateful to know when his celebration of life will be.
