I'm so sad right now. But how beautiful to think that every time someone does ROV move or teaches it a small piece of David Roth is resurrected and lives on. Rest In Peace Mr. Roth.

David Roth was very influencial for me when I first got bit by the Magic bug. I learned his Coin Flurry routine from his VHS tape which I still use. I'm privileged to be a student even if it was through his book and tape. Thank you Mr. Roth. Thank you.

I feel devastated. I attended a lecture by him at a hotel room in San Francisco. There were maybe 10 people there. I had already learned many of his effects. Seeing him perform from a few feet away is one of the highlights of my magical life. He has had such a profound influence on me. My best to his family.

In 1996 I was Jean-Pierre Vallarino's assistant in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during the great Bazaar de Magia convention.
There I met David, we talked about everything, but mainly coin magic !
He encouraged me to pursue my research on the back thumb palm, giving me several sources to study.
I'm grateful for all he brought to the magical world, and first of all for his kindness.
So long Master...

It's bitter sweet to have so much company here. I'm very saddened to hear the news. He remains the one and only Best coin guy and I will miss him and his influence.

I met David at Magic Inc. when he came to lecture long ago. He inspired me and my coin work more than I could have imagined.

The lecture itself was very packed (only Bob Read's was comparable) but there was still an empty seat kept at the front. After much introduction and Jay's dirty joke David came in and thanked everyone. He talked about what the lecture would be about but said he would need some coins. "Has anyone got some coins I could use?" Everyone went looking for their Goshman purse of course. And then from the back room came a voice "Yes, Mr. Roth! Right here, Mr. Roth! I've got some coins right here, Mr. Roth!" Holding up his coin purse in comes running Rickey Jay. He had been performing his show downtown with David Roth as his "53rd assistant". After the laugh Rickey was given the empty seat up front but insisted that Jay take it, and this went back and forth a while.

I was also lucky enough to get into the very small workshop David had in the next few days. On that day people were still calling in to the shop trying to find a way in. There he went into much of what we all know from his book and other items. He was very patient with each of us as we tore into specifics and gave us all we could absorb.

I spoke with him again at one of the coin conventions in King of Prussia PN. All the guys there were terrific about spending time with us but had to be pretty focused on getting performances for the video done. This was the show with the wooden chop cup that was so temperamental it came to be known as "Old Faithful". Even so, David was very free with his time and good advice.

I'm very sorry to think I will not be able to show him how helpful his advice has been. A great loss.

Great magician in many facets, not only coins. Certainly a great teacher as well, but also a great thinker of magic. Magicians tend to get caught up with the sleights and David’s technique, which is understandable because it was flawless, but his thinking behind it, the routines, the plots, and premises were monumental in turning flawless technique into classics in magic.

RIP David.
Very few leave a legacy in magic equal to yours.

I booked David Roth for the Columbus Magi-Fest (I believe is was 2012). Apparently he had never appeared there before. Great guy and was very pleasant to work with .
