Aug. 19, 1933 – March 31, 2011
Longtime Burlington resident Ronald David Rose died in the comfort of his home in Burlington on Thursday, March 31, 2011, at the age of 77. Cremation has taken place.
A Memorial Celebration Open House for Ronald David Rose will take place on April 9, 2011 at the LDS Cultural Hall in Burlington. Food and mingling will be from 4 to 6 p.m. with a fun memories program for all to participate at 5 p.m. Casual dress, three-wheelers and golf carts welcome.
Ron was born in Deadwood, S.D., on Aug. 19, 1933, to Lloyd B. Rose and Katherine Iva VanKirk Rose. Ron would say his life really began on Aug. 23, 1958, when he dedicated himself in marriage to Norma Jeannette Davis of Burlington. They spent their first years of marriage in Iowa, later residing in Nebraska and Colorado, before returning Norma to Burlington in 1976.
After retiring from his labors as a mechanic, he enjoyed wood-crafting funny do-dads and what-nots then three-wheeling around to share them near and far across the Basin.
Left behind are his wife, Norma; daughter, Ronda (Paul) Thatch, grandsons, David and Tanner Rohrer and sister, Jan (Ivar) Andreason.
Golly gee whiz, no flowers or gifts please!
Donations for the Burlington volunteer EMTS are being accepted in Ron’s name at Security State Bank, P.O. Box 531, Basin, WY 82410.
