Everett Conel Rose, Sr, age 85, passed away at his home on the evening of Thursday, July 4, 2019. Born on April 27, 1934 to the late Arthur B.

He revisited the Council area in January 1957 to wed his young bride. After a short forty-eight hours together, he returned to his base, Fort Polk in De Ridder, Louisiana. Soon, Mrs. Rose boarded a Greyhound bus and made the two-day journey to reunite with her husband. In 1958, the couple, along with their first-born baby girl, made their permanent home in Council and welcomed four more children to their family. During his life, Mr. Rose provided for his family through working in a coal mines, driving a variety of delivery trucks, and eventually owning his own coal trucking company with his son. Everett attended Mountain View Freewill Baptist Church in Combs Ridge. Mr. Rose leaves behind a family who has been blessed by his legacy of love, faith, and commitment.
