John W. Roos, Sr

John W. Roos Sr., a lifelong resident of New Rochelle, died on August 18, 2019 at home surrounded by family. He was 81.
John was born on October 11, 1937, in New Rochelle to the late Charles and Marian (Lindemann) Roos.
He was a Technical Manager for Computer maintenance for over 30 years and was responsible for fabricating the central communications system for the NASA moon landing. He was a Navy veteran.
He married and is survived by his high school sweetheart, the former Rosemarie Candido on February 1, 1959.

He is predeceased by his 2 sisters Ann Linden and Joan Trieschmann.
John loved bike riding, tennis, playing bocce, and especially tinkering around with his tools and electronics. He could take anything apart, put it back together, and have it work better than before—No appliance died on his watch!
He loved spending time with his family and Rose, his beloved “bride” of over 60 years! He especially looked forward to family gatherings and spoke of them often. He was a selfless, humble man who devoted himself to his family—Always ready with a smile and whistling a happy tune!
