Rodney George Rose

January 18, 2014
Rod Rose earned great respect from all his colleagues. My late husband admired his quick mind and calm manner in resolving issues. His valiant battle with Parkinson's disease is an inspiration to all. My prayers are with his family. He will be missed by all who knew him. Dana Puddy

Rod was my friend and mentor for many years at NASA and contributed
so much to our manned space flight successes. Charles R (Chuck) Lewis

NASA was exceptionally fortunate to have secured Rod from his work in Canada. I worked with him in the Apollo days as he chaired the Flight Operations Panel. Many disparate requirements and competing designs had to be resolved and integrated with intense personalities to accomplish this pioneering mission. With the help of Rod's professional and knowledgeable stewardship, the flight operations plans came together. I sometimes slip back into thinking of those past days and it heartens me to remember some of the discussions I had with Rod. I am especially grateful and inspired that Rod still attended a number of professional and flight operations “reunions” over the past few years and I was able to visit with him. He is missed.
