A personal message from the District Commissioner:
I send my condolences to the Rose Family. I just had major ankle surgery on January 3, 2013 from old Army injuries. Don wrote to me and also called me on the phone and teased me about my injury. You see, both of us were US Army veterans and members of the US Army Airborne Corp. Don was a proud member of the 82nd Airborne Division. Don told me on the phone that he did 106 jumps with the old T-10 “Charlies” and he had 106 perfect Parachute Landing Falls also known as PLF’s, with no scrapes, bumps, or scratches. He wanted to know what happened to me and why I could not do a perfect PLF.
I remember riding in Don's big van to a Fall State baseball meeting back in 2008 with Don, Donnie Jr., and Dave Gushee. Don was proud to have coached against his son Donnie in youth football. Don brought up a time when his team won its youth football division and little Donnie won his youth football division. The two Loudoun youth football teams met in the finals...known as the “Rose Bowl”. I cannot remember who won the Rose Bowl because Don and little Donnie were bragging about their perspective teams. But Don was sure giving it to little Donnie as to who was the best youth football coach in Loudoun County. It was a great father son moment between the two. All teasing of course.
In closing, there are many more stories of how Don touched many lives over the years. Don was a very generous man who loved giving back to the community. As a combat veteran, I can understand what Don was trying to do with the youth not only in Loudoun County but within the state of Virginia and West Virginia. His motto of “Let the Kids Play” will always be etched in stone.Through Don's love, compassion and dedication to the children in baseball, softball and football, I will always keep his legacy and spirit alive. God Bless and God speed.
