John Frederick Rossi Obituary
John Frederick Rossi, age 85, of Barberton, Ohio, passed away September 15, 2013 at the Laurels of Hilliard, Ohio.
He was born on September 22, 1927 to the late Constantine and Freida (Herzog) Rossi in Blaine, Ohio. John was a U.S. Army Veteran Corporal 4th Grade with 544th Quarter Master Co. serving in Salzburg, Austria. He worked for many years at B.F. Goodrich until going to Newspaper Transportation where he worked for nearly 30 years and retired in the early 1990's.
In addition to his parents, John was preceded in death by wife, Elizabeth Rossi; brothers, Eric (Irene) Rossi and Severino Rossi; sisters, Eileen (Bill) Renner and Frances (Carl) Bennett. He is survived by daughters, Erika Rossi of Hilliard, Ohio and Tammy (Kenneth) White of Lower Salem, Ohio; sisters, Frieda (Frank) Frisone and Grace (Adolf) Tomc; brother, James (Ruth) Rossi; sister-in-law, Betty Rossi; numerous loving relatives and friends.
John was a man of true moral character and a devoted husband, father, brother, son and friend. He touched the lives of everyone he knew or met with his generosity, humor, kindness and gentleness. He was a strong man with a deep respect and love for God, always placing his family or others above himself, a truly self-less man. John was a wonderful example to all who knew him of how to live a life of service and love to others in his own humble and quiet ways. He always showed everyone the utmost respect, kindness and love and this is how he will be remembered by those of us who knew him. He will be deeply missed and loved forever, but finally at peace in the Lord's hands.
