George Rosch Obituary

George Frank Rosch (July 21, 1937 to Nov 10, 2022) was born in Portland, Oregon to Phyllis Reiter Rosch and Sylvester John Rosch. He was first of five children and the only brother to his four sisters. The family moved to the San Diego area and he graduated from Hoover High school in 1955. George started work in banking almost immediately and within a few years transferred into what would end up being his career in mortgage loans acting as an office manager, loan agent, and underwriter. After retiring from the loan industry, he continued to work part-time until he finally retired for good at 79. He was throughout his life the quintessential provider.

George was married to his wife Margo for 57 years and they had four children, five grandchildren and one great grandchild with one more on the way. George's love of children meant he was the Best Dad to his own kids, was an awesome uncle to all his nieces and nephews, and well-liked by nearly every child he met. His best days were just hanging out with his wife and kids.

George was a very proud US Marine. He enlisted in 1960, actively served for 7 months, and remained in the reserve until 1966. George's real passion was sports and by extension coaching. He loved watching basketball, NFL football (Go Chargers!), Soccer, and the Olympics. He started coaching boys basketball for a local league even before his own kids were old enough to play. He coached track and began to jog/run, both with and without his kids, to stay in shape. George really found his love of soccer by coaching both his daughters and sons. Once the kids grew up, he continued be involved in soccer as a referee. He also loved fishing; his kids still remember him coming home from a weekend fishing trip smelling of stale beer and fish. George was an avid reader, mostly of mysteries, and a collector of all the bad Dad jokes.

George passed after a short illness surrounded by his sister and children.
