John Cloyd Rosenberry, 80, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, September 25, 2019. Born April 26, 1939, in Horse Valley, PA he was the last living child of the late Roy and Dora (Horn) Rosenberry.

John started his own logging business at the age of 15, operated a saw shop for a number of years, and later he started his own sawmill operation. During that time he also manufactured log trailers and built trucks for his use and for others as well. John was a founding member of the Apostolic Faith Church in Greenvillage, PA and a life member of the Metal Township Fire & Ambulance Co. John loved playing gospel music on his violin and guitar and was often found at Brindles on Friday night playing and singing. He also enjoyed hunting and spending time with his family.

John is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 58 years Judy (Shaffer)

Thinking of Judy and family with great sorrow and loss. My heart goes out to you all as you face this sad time. The last few times I saw John was at the Milky Way. He would always talk to me and ask how Meghan is doing. The entire Rosenberry family was kind to me when I lived in Path Valley. I have good memories of visiting their farm across the creek. Hugs and prayers as you go on your journey without John. Much love, Sue Graham Petroski

Judy, and the entire family,
My heart is broken hearing the loss of John. What a testimony he led his life to be like Jesus. I will never forget the 1st service that you all attended in Mechanicsburg. Each and every Sunday your family made the drive to church. I am blessed to know your family, Dad talked fondly of John and admired his hunting places. My thoughts and prayers are with you in the next days, weeks, and months, John is in our heavenly waiting for all of us to join him. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for your family. Love and prayers. Daryl & Lisa (Zook) Yonish, Alum Bank, PA
