God bless you Mr. Rozas. So many good memories working with you on the Saint Anthony School board. That school might not still be there were it not for you. My prayers are with your soul and with Marianne and your family. Geaux Tigers!

I’m so sorry for your loss. Mr. Bobby came to my mom’s funeral and I found out that he and my dad (also from Chatagnier) were distant cousins. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Bobby during my first assignment in the Beaumont plant in the early 1980’s. Bobby made quite an impression on me and was a significant influence on my career. Most of my time at Goodyear was as an engineer. In 1984 I was given an assignment as Area Manager in the Budene NA unit. Bobby was asked to take me under his wing, to help me as I transitioned from engineer to production. Bobby told me, "This is the confessional. I'll always listen and try to help. I'll give you my opinions. But what's said between us remains between us." And he did just that. Over the next week or so he observed how I interacted with supervisors and operators. When I did wrong, (which was more than once) he let me know and provided the right guidance that I needed, always in a direct way but with tact and humor. I learned more about working with people in that short time with Bobby than at any other time during my 40 year career at Goodyear and I greatly appreciated his wisdom.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all the Rozas family. What a beautiful man inside and out. I will cherish all the visits with him of many joke's and many life stories he would share with me, my favorite one is when he would tell me the story of meeting Marianne for the first time and saying he knew he was going to marry her, and he would get teary eyed everytime he spoke of his beautiful wife. God bless you Marianne and your beautiful family. May God give you all comfort and peace knowing he's in the arm's of Jesus!

So sorry for your loss. Was great to see him while he would take his daily walk and stop in at Market Basket to say hello to me. He was a part of my childhood years while attending St Anthony’s with Jenny, Julie, Thad & Chris. A great father I remember him as well as a great husband to Ms Marianne. No matter age or health it is still hard to loose a dad. My prayers are with you all during this difficult time. I’m so sorry I missed the rosary & mass as I just heard the news. So many good memories of you all.
