1952 ~ 2018
Scott K. Rose died at home in Colorado Springs on January 19, 2018 after a 16 month struggle with pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Delphine McKerney-Rose and three daughters: Barbara, Kimberly (Nathan) Rupp, and Jennifer. His father Richard, and five siblings also survive: David, Carla, Gene, Julie, and Craig. Scott was born in Washington DC on September 8, 1952 to Mary Margaret “Mitzi” and Richard J. Rose. Scott came to Pueblo, Colorado to complete his Electrical Engineering degree. He returned to Maryland where he grew up, then returned to Colorado in 1978 and lived in Denver for a year before moving to Colorado Springs with his future wife, Del. They were married at Holy Apostles Catholic Church on May 31, 1980, where Scott contributed his considerable energy as a Eucharistic minister, usher, sound tech, and lawn care. Scott pursued many interests throughout his life in Colorado more recently with his golfing buddies, and nearly completing a large HO scale model train layout. Scott reluctantly retired earlier in January 2018 from Microchip Technology Incorporated, formerly ATMEL Corp. and Honeywell.
