Obituary for Vernon Shelby Rose

Vernon  Shelby Rose
Vernon Shelby Rose, A Navy veteran who survived the attack on Pearl Harbor that brought the United States into World War II has died at the age of 94.
Vernon Shelby Rose passed away peacefully on the 16th January, 2017. He was born in Wayne, Ok on July 31, 1922, and was raised in Bell County by his grandmother, Ina M. Rose. On January 28, 1941, Mr. Rose enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he served in many Asiatic-Pacific area operations as Carpenter’s Mate 1st Class. The most notable event of his Navy career was his participation and survival of the attack on Pearl Harbor, at which time he was serving on board the USS Farragut. He proudly served his country until he was Honorably Discharged on January 26, 1947. He was a member of The American Legion Post #133 for 41 years.
A beloved husband, father, grandfather, and a friend to many, Vernon loved spending time with his family, going to car races, watching football and old western movies on TV, and making a daily run to the local coffee shop for an hour or two chat with his long-time friends. He survived by the love of his life and wife of 68 years – Dorothy “Jean” Pruett Rose. Also surviving are two sons—Vernon ”Larry” Rose and wife Beverly of Temple, and Ronnie Rose and wife Roberta of Little River-Academy. Other survivors include two sisters, Freda Weaver of Temple, and Corrine Clark of Little River-Academy, as well as several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
A grave side service will be held at Bellwood Memorial Park in Temple at 1PM, Friday, January 20, 2017.
