Enos Rose, age 90, died August 20, 2018, at the Halifax Infirmary in peace surrounded by his loved ones. A viewing and memorial service officiated by Reverend James Purchase will be held to celebrate his life, generosity, and compassion this Thursday; viewing from 1 to 3 p.m. and memorial service at 3 p.m. followed by a gathering with refreshments at J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 339 Lacewood Dr., Halifax. A second celebration will be held in Cape Breton with a wake on Monday, August 27 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. at Sydney Memorial Chapel, followed by a funeral service officiated by Reverend Brenda Drake on Tuesday, August 28 at 11 a.m. at St. Alban's Anglican Church in Whitney Pier.
Enos was born on October 10, 1927, in Baie du Nord, Newfoundland (a place he returned to frequently and missed until his last day) to Hibbert and Charity (Davidge) Rose. Enos emigrated to Cape Breton, Canada at the age of 17 where he began working at the Sydney Steel Plant, retiring after 40 years of dedicated service. He spent his spare time and retirement years making beautiful creations by hand: woodwork (with which many homes, churches, and especially Camp Bretondean in Mira are now well endowed), riverboats, dories, houses, cars, generous vegetable gardens, and (of course) roses.
He is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Margaret (Mollon) Rose; his four children, Elaine Cotter, Diane MacLean (Wallace), Brent Rose (Joy Johnston) and Michele Cooke (Michael); two brothers, Tom Rose and Alton Rose; sister, Charity Pope; six grandchildren, Ryan MacLean (David Phillips), Douglas MacLean (Katie), Jessica Gerrow (Michael), Jeremy Cooke, Jordan Rose and Charity Cooke (Brett Campbell); two great-grandchildren, Amie and Stephanie Phillips-MacLean; his many nieces and nephews, and dear extended family and friends.
Enos was predeceased by his parents; infant daughter, Judith Raylene; sisters, Francis May, Sarah Caines, Ada Grant and Irene Hillier; brothers, Robert and Kenneth; mother and father-in-law, Bessie (Stevenson) and George Mollon, and son-in-law, Peter Cotter.
Enos will be deeply missed by his family and all whose lives he touched. While we all knew that we were very blessed to have so many wonderful years with this beautiful, gentle, and kind man, we wish we had much more time with him—what truer testament to his pure character and heart? In his loving memory, we will endeavour to live our lives according to his many lessons of generosity; hard work; living life fully; enjoying great humour; and the true meaning of love, commitment, and dedication.
Donations in Enos' memory can be made to Camp Bretondean (the Anglican Church of Canada) or the Alzheimer Society of Canada (which advances the search for a cause and a cure for dementia). For those who prefer to send flowers, floral arrangements may be sent to J.A. Snow Funeral Home (Halifax) or Sydney Memorial Chapel (Cape Breton).
