A funeral service for John Adron Rose, 50 , will be Saturday, May 14, 2016, at noon at St. Luke's Episcopal Church with Fr. Robert Fowler officiating. Burial will be in the Jacksonville City Cemetery. The family will receive friends in the Parish Hall at St. Luke's for one hour prior to the service. Mr. Rose died Saturday, May 7, 2016 at his residence. John attended local schools, Darlington School and the University of Alabama. He is survived by his wife, Whitnye Robin Rose, of Huntsville; a daughter, Sophia Claire Rose, of Huntsville; three step-children, Sage Lolley, Eden Lolley and Latham Lolley, all of Huntsville; his parents, Harry and Katherine Maxine Rose, of Piedmont and a sister, Jacqulyn Harianne Rose, of Jacksonville. Pallbearers will be his lifetime friends. John loved the farm, all its nooks and crannies, the mountain roads, the top of the mountain where he camped out with the ticks and spiders and rattle snakes, the ponds, the corral which he and his dad built, the foggy bottom where he kept his beams and logs for a future cabin, the birds, wild turkeys and deer, the bobcats and even the brown bear the adjoining landowners saw in their yards. John loved sports. He was on the varsity tennis team when he was in the seventh grade and played on the Darlington basketball team for three years. He wanted the soccer games included in the Direct TV package and on his Comcast package in Huntsville. It was not just soccer, but all things European that he loved. He spent long periods of time there and studied at The University of Nice on the Riviera. When he got excited about something he'd seen, he'd call home to tell all about it. Once he called from the train station in Florence and another time from Mont Blanc, high in the French Alps. He came home with a passion for French and Italian cooking. We'd always say, "It will be midnight before we eat if John is cooking". After college, he lived and worked in Atlanta. He absolutely loved living in Buckhead - the night life, the close buddies who always came to his apartment to watch football and the chances to take his mom to Braves' games on the Metro. John and his mother formed a very successful limited liability company to trade stocks. John and his dad enjoyed bumming around in libraries and museums, especially in France. In 2012, he married Whitnye Lolley and moved to Huntsville where she and her children, Sage, Eden and Latham, lived and where their precious little girl, Sophia Claire, was born. Sophia Claire is now three and John had such high hopes for her and wanted to be near her all the time. He adores his sister, Harianne, who drove him all over the South to play tennis on the Circuit. Because of his striking good looks, his instinctive flair for fashion and his sweet, adorable disposition, he was everybody's sweetheart. John loved his friends in good times and bad and they were many. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Luke's Episcopal Church, P. O. Box 55 Jacksonville, AL 36265.
