Charles Rankine Roth

December 10, 1969 — January 4, 2022

Rankine Roth, age 52, left this earthly life on January 4, 2022, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, TN.

Rankine was born the youngest of three boys on December 10, 1969, to Georgia Middlebrooks Roth and the late Charles Nelson Roth. He was a very adventurous and self-motivated individual, who enjoyed just about every outdoor activity from disc golf, fishing, motorcycles, camping, and tennis, just to name a few. Rankine was a very musically talented individual graduating from Northside High School, where he was a member of the band and senior class president. He continued his education at MTSU, receiving a bachelor’s in music business and played as a professional drummer for a number of country artists over the years. Rankine was proud to be a small business owner, where “Rankine to the Rescue” helped hundreds of people from minor repairs to major remodels. His work trailer could be seen all over middle Tennessee.

Rankine is survived by his mother, Georgia Middlebrooks Roth of Jackson, TN; two brothers, Todd Roth and his wife Lisa of Oxford, MS and their children, Hunter, Houston and Hays; and Doug Roth and his wife Michelle of Jackson, TN.
