In Memory

 

'60 Classmates:

It's with great sorrow I must inform you that a truly remarkable classmate of ours, Dave Rose, has passed away after a short but valiant struggle with cancer.  The following obituary, prepared by his family, tells an extended story that was Dave's life.  Those of us who got to know Dave in school, and then watched as he lived a life fashioned to express the central tenants of his Catholic faith ⏤ to help and serve others, especially those in need ⏤ will remember a man of special virtue, character and purpose.  Since 1985, Dave was a member of the Class of 1960 Reunion Committee.  We shall miss Dave.  John
