He and his parents escaped the Nazi Holocaust when they were able to leave Germany in 1939 to live with his brother on Boston, MA. There he attended Mechanic Arts High School, graduating number one in his class of 304 boys. He was awarded the Benjamin Franklin medal which is made of silver supplied from income of a legacy left by Benjamin Franklin in 1791 for the purpose of honoring a student for "best work in all subjects and for exemplary conduct". In 1943 Alfred joined the United States Army and served in Europe, first infantry, and then with Military Intelligence. After the war he attended Tufts University to study mechanical engineering. He was inducted into Engineering Honor Society Tau Beta Pi and he graduated magna cum laude. He joined the Linde Division of Union Carbide Corporation in Buffalo, NY working as a process design engineer for air separation plants.

He became President of the Buffalo Organic Gardening Club and for many years he edited the Newsletter of the New York State Chapter of Natural Food Associates.

Rosseland, Harald - Danbury  
Rosseland, Harald Harald Rosseland, age 71, of Danbury, CT, beloved husband of Barbara, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Kristiansand Norway, Harald grew up on the family farm and was the youngest of six children. Some of his older siblings ventured from home to America, which was also Harald's dream. At the age of 20, he left home to pursue his American Dream. His first job was as a carpenter. Through his natural talents, perseverance, passion for hard work and challenges, he formed his own residential building company in the late 1960s, Harald Rosseland Building Contractor Inc. During the past almost 50 years, he built hundreds of homes throughout Fairfield County, from Greenwich to Woodbury. Living the American Dream and his love for America exceeded even his own expectations! Although building was his passion, love of family and time with family and friends became what was most important. Part of Harald's success in his business and personal life was his one-on-one, mild, quiet, friendly manner, and unfailing loyalty and patience. Harald was blessed with an extra measure of kindness. He always made time to help neighbors and friends. Harald's enthusiasm for cars and motorcycles began as a youngster on the farm in Norway, where he would see the occasional American car pass by and dream of owning one. And when his older brother was teaching him how to fix motorcycles, his reward was to take it for a ride. Throughout his life, Harald spent most of each day working outside or riding a classic Triumph down a country road in Connecticut or Florida on a sunny day, which was one of his greatest pleasures. Over the years, he has befriended many car and motorcycle enthusiasts, who share his love for the classics and met regularly at Marcus Dairy and the Sycamore. The support from this group, as well as from many friends, neighbors, and family was a great encouragement to Harald during his illness. Harald is survived by his wife of 30 years, Barbara Mitchell Rosseland, and his son, John Harald Rosseland, his wife Mary and their children, John Harald Jr. and Katrina, of Mountain Lakes, NJ. In addition, he is survived by his brother, Oddmund Gudleiv Rosseland and his wife Astrid, and three sisters, Marit Rosseland, Gerd Anne-Marie Baardsen and Valborg Rosseland, all of Kristiansand Norway, as well as eight nephews and six nieces. Harald was predeceased by his father, Ommund Rosseland, of Evje Norway, his mother, Gudrun Forgaard Rosseland, of Åseral Norway, his brother John Rosseland, and his first wife, Gulli Desiree Johannesson Rosseland of Öckerö Sweden. The Memorial Service will take place at Walnut Hill Community Church, 156 Walnut Hill Rd., Bethel, on Saturday, April 25, 2015, at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in Harald's name can be made to Disabled American Veterans, P.O. Box 14301, Cincinnati, OH 45250-0301 or Serving In Missions (SIM), Project 85550, Jos Nigeria, P.O. Box 7900, Charlotte, NC 28241-7900.
