You have our deepest sympathy. Rosy was a great guy! He was really nice and so loyal serving at hundreds of veterans’ military honors with Charles Nitterhouse Post 1599 VFW. You could always count on him and Paul Kriner to be there including my father’s funeral on a freezing day in February 2011. “Well done, you good and faithful servant...”, Matthew 25:23.

You will be missed by so many family members. You were a great inspiration to many of us. You're wisdom has been appreciated more than I think you will ever realize.
Rest in peace, glad to hear you went peacefully.
God is blessed by taking you home and now you can meet up with the rest of our beautiful family up there.
Miss down here but never will begotten.
