Bruce Rose
Bruce Rose, 66, passed away peacefully on January 12, 2021 following a seven-month battle with the Covid 19 virus.
Bruce was born in January 20, 1954 in Racine, Wisconsin. He spent his early years in Chapel Hill, NC, Knoxville, TN, Houston, TX, and Ponte Vedra, FL. He graduated from Duncan Fletcher High School in 1972. He received a BS in Sociology from the University of North Florida.
After working in the oil field business for several years, he started an import business specializing in Mexican ironwood carvings. For many years, Bruce and his father traveled to Mexico together for buying trips to local artisans. After retiring for health reasons, Bruce was involved in volunteer work.
In high school, Bruce developed an affinity for surfing. In addition to his regular trips to the Texas gulf, he also rode the waves in Southern California and Florida. His love of the sea led to his interest in sailing. Some of his favorite times were spent with friends on weekend sailing trips.
As an avid runner, Bruce successfully completed the Boston Marathon several times. Back problems ended his running career after completing over 10 marathons.
Bruce was predeceased by his father, Dr. Warren Rose. He is survived by his mother, Helen Rose of Atlantic Beach, FL; and siblings Douglas Rose (and his wife Debra) of Penn Valley, PA; Carolyn Popp (and her husband Bill) of Neptune Beach, FL; Cynthia Smith (and husband Rob) of Greer, SC; and Gary Rose (and his wife Lisa) of Mathews, NC. He is also survived by a number of nieces and nephews.
Following cremation, the family will gather for a private scattering of the ashes later this year.

Many fun times are to be remembered sailing with captain Bob and the gang of merry friends. Bruce will be missed by many golfers. He started late in life to take it up but read a book and was way above average. He was hooked and played regularly. Always in for a good time he belonged to many groups and organizations. Bruce never knew a stranger. He was a friend to all that knew him.
Goodbye wave dancer!!!
