Obituary of Ronald Stuart Rose
Ronald S. Rose of Post Falls, Idaho, passed from life while circled by loving family members on
Friday, July 12, 2019 at Kootenai Health Hospital in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Ron was born
August, 28, 1942 in Wallace, Idaho to Willard Rose and Geneva Wilkerson.
Those who knew Ron were able to experience his easygoing, free spirit. Throughout his well-
lived life, he did, went and lived it like he wanted; which is more than some people can say. He
shared his gentle nature, heartfelt laugh, and love of music generously. He made many friends
wherever he went and was always glad to see them. Ron worked various jobs throughout his
life, but hunting, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors was where he was most happy and
Ron is preceded in death by his parents and is survived by his son, Daniel Rose, stepfather
Ralph McKelvy, sister Jinni (and Wayne) Dorsey and brother Greg Rose of Post Falls, Idaho;
stepsister Debbie Greene of Spokane Valley, Washington; stepbrother Mike (and Betty)
McKelvy of Ketchikan, Alaska; as well as many nieces and nephews.
At his request, there will be no services.
