FRANKEN, Gerald W. Beloved father of JoNel Roth. Loving grandfather of Kerstin, Batiya and Jaycee. Dear brother of Tom (Cheryl) Franken. February 2, 2009. Age 64. Friends may call at the Hodapp Funeral Home 6041 Hamilton Ave, College Hill, Sunday from 2PM until time of Funeral Service at 4PM.


Larry J. Roth - Feb 8, 2009

Dad, you will be so very missed by all of us, especially Kerstin and Batiya. I hope that Jaycee remembers you as he grows. Neither a child’s father nor grandfather can ever be replaced. You have been an inspiration and leading example of what a father and grandfather should be. You will be sincerely thought of regularly and often. We are comforted, only knowing that you may now rejoin with your father and mother that you surely have missed as we will be missing you. May you be forever bound up in the book of eternal life.

My prayers and hopes are now with all of the family as they suffer this door of change.

I am so sorry to hear about Jerry, it seems like just yesterday when we were all eating fish and corn at the wonderful Cinci Fish frys and racing on the banks with a few beers in everyone, amazed at how the day had gone so well or so rotten. I treasure all those memories and pray that you will all find peace.
