Obituary

QUEENSBURY

Rodney L. “Rod” Rosebrook, 95, passed away on Monday, Oct. 21, 2019, at Washington Center Nursing Home surrounded by his entire family,

Born on Feb. 19, 1924, in Wilder, VT, he was the son of the late George and Florence (Rogers) Rosebrook.

Rod graduated from Glens Falls High School in 1941 where he was very active in sports. Shortly thereafter he was called into the military service during WWII. Rod was a cryptographer, working with codes and ciphers and was assigned to the United States Army Air Force as a Sergeant. He did duty in the Gilbert Islands and Okinawa being awarded several ribbons and citations. After his service Rod went to Rider University where he played varsity football and graduated with a B.S. Degree in Business Administration. He worked for G.M.A.C. in Trenton, NJ for 9 years as a credit supervisor and territorial manager. Rod returned to this area and worked for Metropolitan Life for 22 years as a field representative and staff manager. He took early retirement from Met Life and went to work for the Tel Page Corp. in Utica, NY as general manager. While there he met his present wife Edith Richards Rosebrook. He retired from Tel Page in 1986 and returned to this area to be closer to his family. Rod was an avid golfer and past president of Tee Bird Country Club. He loved to dance, play bridge, and was a member of the Elks B.P.O.E. Glens Falls Lodge #81. For several years after retirement, Rod and Edie spent the winter months in Perdido Keys, FL.

In addition to his parents, Rod was predeceased by his sisters, Leola Streeter, Muriel Stark; his brothers, John and Kenneth Rosebrook; sons-in-law, Dick Barnum, Sonny Tomasello.

Left to cherish his memory include his wife, Edith; his children, Leslie (David) Eagle, David (Judy) Rosebrook, Richard (JoAnn) Rosebrook and Scott Rosebrook; his extended family, Wendy Barnum, Debby Tomasello, Kathy (Tad) Beaver, Jennifer (Matthew) Pisegna and Thomas Moran; his former wife, Rosann Gray; and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Friends may call from 12 to 1pm on Friday, Oct. 25, 2019, at M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 136 Main Street, South Glens Falls, NY 12803.
