Patrick will be truly missed by his many cousins, nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, as well as his beloved friends.
Patrick was a decorated veteran who served four years with the United State Marine Corps, a brief stint as a Navy Seabee, and then went on to serve with the New York National Guard for over 25 years where his love for tanks began. He was deployed to the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 for 11 months. Following this, he served with the Kentucky National Guard. Further deployments for his country included Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan; all between 2004-2010 with both the 34th Infantry Division “Red Bull’s” and the 38th Infantry Division “Cyclones”. Captain John Patrick Rose, U.S. Army, retired in January 2011, when he began his career with local government public safety.
Patrick had a love of reading and learning, having earned a bachelor of History from Excelsior College, where he worked for several years. Animals were his “happy place”, and his faithful furry companion Otto waited for him through multiple deployments and combat tours.
As a dedicated public servant, who loved his country, family and friends, Patrick was larger than life.
To honor his memory, Indiana based services are being held Monday, January 14, 2019, at 3 p.m., and details may be found on the Ripley County EMA page http:// www.ripleycounty.com/ema/ Friends, family and brothers in arms will gather Saturday, January 19, at Allen Street Pub, South Allen Street, Albany, to celebrate his life.
