Along with his wife, he is survived by 2 daughters, Brandy Sandahl of Texas and Gina (Jason) Zender of Sycamore; five grandchildren, Caleb Davis of Texas, Mia Miller, Liam Zender, Logan Zender of Sycamore, and Sheryl (Chaz) Huff of Kirby; A sister Pat (Tedd) Pfarr of Prospect; three great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents he was proceeded in death by a sister Judy Rosebrough, and two brothers Virgil (Geneva) Rosebrough, John Rosebrough Jr, and life time best friend Rick Columber.
Dale or “Dirty” as his loved ones called him, was a special person. There was more to Dale then being a loving and loyal husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. He was a man that either loved you or didn’t. He was straight forward and honest. His time was well spent playing with his dogs, hunting pheasant and deer, being a chicken daddy, building hot rods, building things for his wife, fishing with his grandsons, getting Wendy’s frosty’s with his granddaughter, and restoring anything with a motor. There was nothing he could not do or fix. After turning junk into a treasure, he would say, “Its just like a brand new used one.” He was always on the go and stayed busy. In his younger years he spent his time riding Harley’s with his best friend Rick. Mostly, he loved hanging out with friends and “burning one” (If you know, you know), sharing laughs with loved ones, or doing things with his wife Pat. He was good humored, entertaining, and made life fun.
Dale is irreplaceable to all who knew and loved him. He deserved more time than what he was given. His family and friends will ensure his legacy lives on.
