It is with great sadness in our hearts that we announce the sudden passing of John William Rose of Oshawa Ontario, on April 16th 2019 , at 70 years of age. John was the son of the late Harry and Madeleine Rose, much loved brother of Barbara Tarbuck (Michael), and predeceased by cherished brothers Pat Rose, and David Rose (Cathie, Joey and Carrie). Uncle John will be greatly missed by nieces Kirsten Bruce (Randy), Katrina McAdam (Colin), Sarah Tarbuck, and nephews William and Glen Rose. Uncle John was a loving Great Uncle to Beatrice, Fiona, and Isla McAdam; Rowan, Callum and Euan Bruce; and Jack and Alice MacDougall.
John Rose grew up in Oshawa, and made many friends during this time that he remained close to over the years. He was a carpenter by trade, and taught at Durham College for many years. John was a fixture at his favourite pub “T. Williams”. He had many friends here that he cherished all meant the world to him. We hope that the happy memories of time spent with John at the pub will be a comfort to the many dear friends who will miss him so much.
A celebration of life is planned for John’s friends and family. Please email for details. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Ducks Unlimited Canada can be made in his memory, or to any charitable organization of your choosing.

I have many memories of good times with John and his family, at the camp, at our cottage in Waupoos, and at their home in Oshawa for New Years. Have a safe trip to the Happy Hunting Ground John. Doug and Raymonde Kearney, Ottawa.

I was saddened to hear today of John’s passing. I haven seen any of the “Roses” for many years, but I have such fond memories of life as a kid - running through fields, Aunt Mad bathing us in laundry tubs, Uncle Harry being calm in the midst of chaos, dogs, mud, many mischievous antics that generally landed us in trouble, and much much more. My condolences to the family. Sue Murdoch McConville

I taught with John when he was in the Carpentry Programme in Ajax. I remember his quick wit, and we crossed swords many times....a lot of laughter. I offer my condolences to his family. May he rest in peace!
