I took the suggestion and looked through the funeral directors in Wanatchee. I only found one that mentioned AR. It is an old one and probably been posted before, but here it is anyway.
Roger Dean Rose went to be with our Lord on December 5, 2009 after a long courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Sage, Arkansas on August 30th 1935 to Archie Rose and Alma (Stroud) Rose. He attended school in Melbourne, Arkansas, which is where he met his future wife, Lois Collier. In 1955, shortly after his graduation, he married Lois and he and his young bride moved to the Wenatchee area, where they would live for the next 51 years. Upon their arrival to Wenatchee, Roger began working at Columbia River Orchards, where he would remain until he began construction work on Rocky Reach, Wanapum and Wells Dam. After almost 8 years in construction, Roger went to work as a horticulturist for the WSU Tree Fruit Research Center here in Wenatchee, where he would be employed for the next 30 years.
He was a member, an Elder and a Deacon at the East Wenatchee Church of Christ for thirty years before moving to the King's Orchard Church of Christ in Wenatchee.
Roger is survived by his son Ron (Rhonda), daughter, Lisa (Ricardo), grandchildren, Torrie (Adam), Chelsea, Christian and Devin, his great-grandchildren, Haidin and Norah and his sister, Martha Helm of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Waiting for him in Heaven is both of his parents, his wife, Lois, son, Paul and his sister, Maxine Umphnour.
A Service of Commemoration will be held at The King's Orchard Church of Christ, 1610 Orchard Ave., Wenatchee at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 9th, with a reception to follow. Please sign in or leave a memory for the family online by visiting www.HeritageMemorialChapel.com A private family Entombment will be at Evergreen Memorial Park Cemetery with all arrangements entrusted to Heritage Memorial Chapel.
Thanks for the idea. I will search more later.
