Rozman; Robert

Rozman, Robert George
July 25, 1943 – May 10, 2014
“”I’m a lucky guy. I’ve had a pretty good life”.
I’ve just seen all my kids together: Denise, Natalie, Jordan and Kyla. My granddaughters too, Kaila and Daphney, and their mom Sharon.
My mother Rose taught me to make the best apple pies in the world. My father George taught me how to build and fix things.
Engineering taught me how to think. Thirty years of teaching math taught me that things don’t always add up. And it gave me time to do hi-fi, go to audio and model shows, travel, take dancing lessons, and best of all…go Sailing!! Have you been to the North Channel?
It was fun to cook with friends, share stories, and drink a little too … “I’m getting excited just mentioning these things!”
The best part of my life was doing these things with my wife Kath. She made me appreciate all the little details – ice on the trees after a storm, hawks on the hunt, and odd couples at restaurants. Kath would just jump in the car and we’d go do things on the spur of the moment. Amazing!! What more could somebody ask for?
P.S. Thanks for writing this Kath.”
Friends can leave their stories and memories of Robert at www.needhamjay.com. And if you wish to leave a donation in his memory, you could do so to the C.E.E.
