Larry RosenLarry Paul Rosen was born on September 6, 1946 in Seattle, Washington to Paul H. and Lillie Faye Cowherd Rosen. When he was two years old his parents moved him to Edmonds, Washington, where he grew up and graduated from Edmonds High School in June of 1964. After high school he followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the US Army for four years. After the Army, he went to broadcasting school and worked as a DJ in various radio stations in Washington, Alaska, Idaho and Oregon through the mid-1990’s. In 1969, he married his first wife Velta Ruth Henderson, and they welcomed their only child, Heather Gail in October of 1975 in Sitka, Alaska. They divorced in 1987. After a second failed marriage ending in 1996, he finally found his true love, Edith Marie McCaughan and they married in 2006. Sadly, she preceded him in death after only three loving years together. Larry is preceded in death by his parents, one sister Gail Lynn, and his beloved wife Edie. He leaves behind one daughter Heather (Tim) Ivey, four grandchildren, Cody Ivey, Kylie Ivey, Kiersten Ivey and Caleb Ivey and one great grandson Siyles Alyea as well as two brothers Lonnie Rosen and Rick Rosen and a sister Pamela (Ray) Johnson and several nieces and nephews. Larry enjoyed being with family, and when he wasn’t with them, he enjoyed being involved in his church and community. His greatest joy was volunteering in the local schools as a SMART volunteer. He loved reading to children making the stories come alive. His talents and caring heart will be greatly missed. A memorial service will begin at 2:00pm Saturday, September 28th in the Dallas First Christian Church.
