Rose, Jack Alastair Pace,

November 5, 2016.
Jack's quick wit, dedication, and friendly smile touched the hearts of all who knew him.
Eleven years was far too short a time with Jack in our lives but he will forever remain in our hearts. He was all we could ask for in a son and we could always count on Jack to keep us full of laughter, smiles and pride.
Jack Rose passed away on Saturday evening in an accident while enjoying a weekend backpacking with his Dad and the Boy Scouts through Red River Gorge.
Jack is survived by his loving parents James and Susann, twin sister Maddie and older twin sisters Kate and Emma. Jack is also loved and cherished by paternal grandparents Jim and Betty Rose, maternal grandparents Richard and Nancy Szotak; great-grandmother Mrs. Louis Crompton, aunt Melissa Rose, godfather Ronald Szotak, godmother Sonia Inacio and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Jack was a sixth grader at Noe Middle School, where he enjoyed being in the recent school musical, playing on the tennis team, sixth grade band and swim team. He will be greatly missed by his Dunn Elementary classmates and teachers, where he loved cross country, lacrosse, All-County Chorus, the annual Turkey Trot, chess team and academic teams. Jack especially enjoyed playing lacrosse with his friends, and swimming for the Blairwood swim team each summer. Jack recently earned his Tenderfoot rank as a member of the Troop 30 Boy Scouts and always looked forward to the troop's monthly camping trips.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Friday November 11, 2016 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 501 Cherrywood Road. Visitation will be Thursday from 3:00 to 8:00PM at Pearson's, 149 Breckenridge Lane.
