So sad to learn of Don's passing.  Joyce and I will miss his guidance and stewardship.   Don gave me my first opportunity to support the Department of Defense as a contractor.   His many lessons on how to support the customer and the employees has been the hallmark of my civilian career.  It was a joy working for him and with his family during our times with Command Technologies.  He will be missed and condolences to the entire Rose family.

Don was a humble, kind, generous man of integrity. I am thankful for the opportunity I had to work for his company, Command Technologies. The employees were treated like family and he always supported and donated to different needs of the community when he was living in Warrenton, VA. Heaven has gained an angel. To the family you have my condolences and you are in my prayers. May his precious memory live on.

During the years Don lived in Fauquier County he was a champion of public education. He worked tirelessly and donated generously to a successful campaign to get a referendum passed to build a new high school. He sponsored golf tournaments to raise funds to provide enrichment opportunities for outstanding teachers. He visited classrooms to share his Indian heritage. We were privileged to experience this smart, talented, kind man for a few years. The impression he left is timeless.

I had the distinct pleasure of knowing Mr. Rose for many years and always looked forward to seeing him.  His perseverance as well as his kindness and humor was always evident, as well as his love for family, especially his children, grandchildren and brother and sister in law.  His love of gardening and cooking seemed to be a great joy to him.  I will surely miss him and am grateful to have known him and his family.  May you find comfort in his life well lived, that was filled with so many blessings, and may you be able to carry his memory always in your hearts.

Don was so supportive of education - in many ways.  As a neighbor in Warrenton, he would always donate to the door-to-door sales our children were offering to support P.B. Smith, or the school orchestra, or a baseball team.  Don was very generous, always thinking about education, children and the community.  He has made a lasting impact on Fauquier County and will be remembered.

I had the privilege of meeting Don in 1999 in Warrenton, VA.  Over the next several years I had the pleasure of getting to know Don and working with him in both a business and community service capacity.  His passion for his family, for education, and for giving back to the community were very evident and admired by many in the Fauquier County community. Don had an excellent way to imparting lessons learned from his past experiences through his interactions with people.  Don truly left a lasting impression on many of us her in the Fauquier County community.  My condolences do out to his family, and our thoughts and prayers are with them during this time.  I wish peace and comfort for the family as you take time to remember Don and a life well lived.

To the entire Rose family, our most sincere condolences on Don's passing - as we fondly referred to him in OCS59C comms, "DTE" (Don-the-Elder).  Your Dad, Granddad, brother, cousin, was one of a kind - a gentlemen among gentlemen.  He will be missed here on this earth but we look forward to the reunion in our most glorious Eternal Paradise future with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Mr. Rose was an amazing human being with strong personal, business, and family values. He gave me a chance as a young college intern and I learned so much from him and from the business that he created about hard work, ethics, and just being humble and kind. He was and is an incredible light in my life and I work every day to teach my children and coworkers the invaluable life lessons I learned from his leadership. My thoughts are with his loving family.

I was fortunate to have worked with Don in Viet Nam and to back him up when he was on leave.  He was a fine Air Force officer.  RIP Maj. Rose.

The Rose family was very special to us. When Don was still in the Air Force stationed at Offutt Air Force Base here in Omaha, they lived next door to us for eleven wonderful years. ( 1967-1978). We all became very close and kept that friendship going all these years. Don and Carolyn would do anything for you at anytime and anything you needed if you needed them. We laughed and cried together many a time.
You kids we love you and please accept our sincere sympathy and to his brother and sisters.
