Rosen, who spent the last few years wheelchair bound was in good spirits when we last spoke.
He was hospitalized on Monday with stomach problems and passed away at 3 AM Thursday morning.
When I met Rosen more years ago than I care to count, he was an effective leader in Sunrise Lakes Phase 2.
I was the new kid on the block, he was an established vote leader.
He was also President of the Sunrise Political Club / Gold Key Residents Association.
Along with the late Sidney Permisson, the two moved a lot of votes in Sunrise.
But that was years ago.
Funeral services for Rosen will be held on Sunday at 10:15 AM at Star of David Chapels in North Lauderdale.
