John was born October 7, 1950 in Fort Campbell, Kentucky to Keith Leroy Rose and Frances Lorraine (McDermott) Rose. He attended N.C. State University and worked for almost 40 years as a Sr. Engineering Technician for Law Engineering (currently AMEC). He loved hunting and fishing, woodworking, fixing things, watching NASCAR, hot sauce, and anything Wolfpack. Most of all, John loved spending time with his family and friends. He was a devoted Catholic and proud member of the Knights of Columbus.

A Funeral Mass and interment will be conducted at 4 p.m. on Friday, July 5th at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 2718 Overbrook Drive, Raleigh.

John lived with courage and Faith and optimism. I knew him almost 40 years through being roommates, work, hunting, fishing, and NC State. He was dedicated to his church and family and had splendid demeanor, always helpful and steady. I will miss him a lot. My thoughts and prayers are with his wonderful wife Nancy and his children.

Nancy and family:
Years ago at LETCO we were young, strong and invincible. But the passage of time has taken yet another Law-Man from our midst. John-boy will always be remembered in our stories. Please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3,4 states "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you a new hope.

Nancy....my heart was broken for you and the children this morning as I read of John's death. He was always a bright spot at the end of our day when he came for his dental appts. Please know that your family will be in my prayers in these days ahead.
Much love,
Harriett (in Dr. Scandalios' dental office)
