ROSE, Rocky

March 6, 1952- Feb. 15, 2021

Rocky Rose, 68 of Bellbrook Ohio, went home to be with the Lord, the morning of

Monday, February 15th, 2021.

He was born in Dayton, Ohio, March 6th, 1952, to Everette H. Rose and Rose Edna (Uhls). He graduated from Belmont High School class of 1970 and joined the Navy. A carpenter by trade, he spent many years in

construction and remodeling, owning Dayton Developments Construction Co. He then became a superintendent for a HUD housing Project called "The Lakewoods Apartments" for roughly twenty years until he retired.

He enjoyed tinkering with anything and everything. He loved flying. Years ago, he obtained his pilot's license and flew

single engine planes for a hobby. Most of all, Rocky loved his grandkids!

Rocky is survived by his son Ritchie (Deanne) Rose; his daughter Rhonda (Joseph) Cook and five grandchildren; Justin and Ashley Rose, Joseph, Jr., Codie and Kaitlyn Cook; Sister Sheila (Billy) Blankenship and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
