It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we tell of Herbert Lee Rose, 81, a long-time resident of Waldron Ar. went to be with the Lord on February 24, 2022.
Herbert was born on May 7th 1940 in Boles Ar. to the late Luke Rose and Alma Vines Rose.
Herbert went to grade school in Boles Ar. After Herbert finished 8th grade he moved to Little Rock Ar. to work for a tree trimming service to help provide for his family.
Herbert set a Christ like example for all of his family and friends. He was known for always making sure others were taken care of, no matter the cost to him. He was willing to lend a hand and made sure to spread the gospel any chance that he could.
He married the love of his life Patricia Newborn on June 27, 1965. They spent their first few years of marriage in Lepanto Ar. Later they moved back to Waldron Ar., where together they purchased Rose Trailer Park. Herbert worked at the Waldron Furniture Factory and also hauled pulpwood. Herbert had many passions and hobbies over the years. He had a love for nice cars and trucks, and was meticulous when it came to them. Being a volunteer firefighter was one of his favorite past times and everyone knew to stay out of his way when he was racing to the station. One of his greatest joys in life was being a grandpa.
Herbert is preceded in death by his Mother Alma and Father Luke. His sisters Betty Oliver and Treva Davis. His brother Fred Rose. Grandson Trenton Keener.
