Obituary of Jack W. Rossman

(WATERPORT)

Jack W. Rossman, age 83, died 1/8/2019 in the Martin Linsin Hospice Residence following a brief illness.

  He was born 11/3/1935 in Bellefonte, PA to Kermit and Thelma (Miller) Rossman and had lived in this area over 20 years. 

Jack was a Veteran of the United States Air Force, a member of the Spring Mills United Church of Christ, a Life-member of the NRA, and was an avid outdoorsman…in particular, he loved to fish.  That is part of the reason he and Roseann moved to this area, because of the excellent fishery.  Jack was a gunsmith and a hobbiest who built working models of antique ‘Hit and Miss’ engines.  He enjoyed taking people on his boat “Agitator” to fish the bounties of Lake Ontario.  Jack is survived by his wife of 58 years, Roseann, 2 sons: Jack K. (Lynne) Rossman of CO, Chris (Cherenne) Rossman of CA, sister: Jill (John) Palmer of PA, 4 grandchildren: Megan, Sydney, Julia, Shelby, 1 niece: Darbie and 1 nephew: Philip. 

There will be no prior calling hours.  Private service and interment will be held at the convenience of the family in PA. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice of Orleans, P.O. Box 489, Albion, NY, 14411.
