Hubert "Bert" L. Rosario

November 3, 1931 ~ November 3, 2021 (age 90)


Hubert Lionel Rosario was born in Cochin, India on November 3rd, 1931, to parents Joseph and Mary Rosario. Hubert married Muriel in 1965 and in 1976, Hubert and their three children emigrated to Pendleton, Oregon to begin their adventure, and rejoin Muriel, as a family. “Bert” as he is lovingly known was a humble and loving husband, father, and community member. He worked diligently at St. Anthony’s Hospital until he retired in 1999, after 19-years of loyal service. His friends will remember Bert for his infectious humor, welcoming heart, and a consummate giver to those around him. He brought joy and happiness into all his endeavors. Bert was passionate about cooking South-Indian foods and entertaining friends. His gardening skills were magical. He was an active volunteer and member of St. Mary’s Catholic Parish, Knights of Columbus (4th Degree), Lions Club, Eagles, and Main Street Cowboys. Bert has a daughter named Cheryl Gerr, from his first marriage, which ended tragically. You would never know since he always brought an optimistic and bright outlook. Cheryl married Joe Gerr and built their family in India, which gave Bert great pride. He is survived by his loving wife of 56-years, Muriel Rosario. Their three children; Hy Rosario (partnered with Dena Robles), California-based, Celine Watson (married to Andy Watson), Sherwood-based, and Jennifer are all blessed to call him father. Bert has ten grandchildren, Surita, Ravi, Lauren, Sydney, Aidan, India, Cameron, Pearle, Michelle, and Jason, who love him and will miss his presence. He has three great grandchildren, Meaghan, Ella, and Nathan. Bert lived by Christian values and imparted this to his family. He modeled a life of humility, love, diligence, and unselfishness, which is a legacy woven into his children’s lives and ethos. Bert passed away peacefully on November 3, 2021, in the presence of Muriel at his bedside. He completed his 90th Birthday, on his day of passing, to finish his incredible story! He will be dearly missed by family, friends, and colleagues from near and far. We truly hope all those he encountered will continue his unwavering optimism out into the world.
