Obituary for Norris Rose

Norris  Rose
R. Norris Rose went home to be with his Lord Fri, Jan. 26, 2018. He was a devoted husband of 61 years to the love of his life, Nelda, and a wonderful father to Dayna, Don & Laurie. He took great delight in his 4 grandchildren: Sherie, David, Ian, & Rob, and his 6 great-grandchildren. He was an avid skier and hiker and loved most sports, playing and coaching baseball and football. He was especially fond of music, singing with the Durango Choral Society and doing some choir directing as well.
Norris was known for his generous and giving spirit, and lived out his Christianity by helping others in need as much as he could... shoveling snow, driving cancer patients to treatment, working with the handicap ski program, etc.
Norris loved his country and served it well as a Lt. Colonel in the Air Force, then Air National Guard.
He was born March 17, 1933 and always looked forward to his St. Patrick's Day birthday celebration with green cake! He will be missed... but we will see him again!
A memorial service will be held Fri, Feb. 2, 2018 at 1st United Methodist Church of Durango at 11:00am.
