John Thomas Rose of Duck, NC passed away on Friday November 30, 2018 at Norfolk Heart Hospital. He was born August 16, 1947 and was preceded in death by his parents, Harriet and Frederick Rose, his brother, Fred and his sister, Mary.

John is survived by his wife of 49 years, Terry, his sisters Bette Hegarty and Joan Rose, nieces and nephews Noreen Decker, Billy Decker, Fred Rose, Ed Rose and Michael Rose, great nieces and nephews and one great-great niece and one soon to be born. He is also survived by our cats, Hazel and Harrison, who were his loyal friends.

John retired from driving an oil truck providing heat to many in the cold winters up north. He retired, and we moved to North Carolina in 1997. John was also a proud United States Army veteran. He will be joining his pals Fred, Bernie and George with whom he had many interesting boat trips when we camped on the Delaware River.

He will also be missed by the “Boys Club” on Thursdays at Sweet T’s. He was employed by Sun Realty in Corolla and they are part of our extended family.
