Ted was born on July 14, 1924, in Guttenberg, the son of Bernard Theodore and Anna (Petsche) Roth.

Ted received his education locally and toward the end of high school, entered the U.S. Army where he served in several major campaigns in the European Theater during WWII and received an honorable discharge on Feb. 5, 1946. On Aug. 20, 1947, Ted was united in marriage with Elaine Rodas at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Elkader. They were later blessed with three children. For many years, Ted operated Ted’s Shell Station until his retirement. Ted was a long time member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Guttenberg, Guttenberg American Legion Post #373 and back in the day, Ted and Elaine were members of a square dancing club. Ted enjoyed his time working at the service station, especially visiting with all his customers, except the ones who stopped only to use the bathroom. Ted enjoyed spending time with his family. He rarely ever missed his kids and grandkids school events or sporting events over the years and always made himself available to his family when they needed him for anything.
