In memory of
Keith Rosser HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP Keith Rosser, 94, a longtime resident of Hopewell Township, NJ, passed away on Nov. 28, 2018, in Centennial, CO. Keith was born in 1924 in Bristol, PA, the second child of Keith Monroe Sr. and Helen Rosser. He graduated from Bristol High School in 1942 and from Cornell University (B.S. in Civil Engineering) after honorable discharge from the Marine Corps in 1945. There he met his future wife, Shirley Crafts. The couple settled outside Pennington, NJ, where they lived for 66 years. Keith worked his entire career for the New Jersey Department of Transportation, beginning as a field engineer and progressing through the ranks to become the director of planning and research. For a short time he served as the assistant commissioner of the department. Keith and Shirley were avid golfers and longtime members of Hopewell Valley Golf Club, where he served on the board of directors for a number of years. In late 2015 the couple moved to Centennial, CO, to be near one of their two sons. After Shirley's death in mid-2016, Keith continued to enjoy his time in Colorado, but remained an East Coaster at heart. Keith was preceded in death by Shirley, his beloved wife of 69 years. He is survived by their two sons, Bruce (Laurie) Rosser of Fountainville, PA, and Mark (Sue) Rosser of Centennial, CO; three grandchildren, Travis (Jenn) Rosser of Wilmington, NC, Drew (Taryn) Rosser of Highlands Ranch, CO, Whitney (Ryan) Romanchuk of Miami Shores, FL; and seven great-grandchildren, Dylan and Maya Rosser; Wyatt, Levi, and Scarlett Rosser; Miles and baby boy Romanchuk. Keith requested that no fuss be made and no service be held after his death and cremation. Keith's and Shirley's ashes will be scattered together by family at a later date.
