Rosie's big smile and wonderful sense of humor brightened many a dull class period at PHS. I will always remember him fondly. May he rest in peace.

Roosevelt (Rosie) was so loved by the PHS Class of '65. His sense of humor and beautiful belief in himself endeared him to all of us. RIP our wonderful friend. We will miss you and extend our sympathy to your family.

Ah, my old friend Rosie, who was in my kindergarten class and many thereafter. Enjoyed many a hike on those dreadful stairs from Hawthorne school to the top of the south hill.
It was so great to see him at our 50th reunion of PHS '65. Have a million fun and funny memories of him. He could brighten any day. Sweet dreams.
