    In Loving Memory of

    Carmen Rosas

    Birth Date: Jul 16th, 1942 Death Date: Nov 27th, 2015
    Carmen "Roso" Rosas

    Jim Morrison once said, "The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are." Following that truth, Carmen Rosas was never afraid to be himself, finding his own way through life. After going to be with God on Friday, November 27, 2015, at age 73, Carmen remains in the hearts and prayers of his family and friends, many of whom surrounded him at the time of his death.

    Born on June 16, 1942, in Caldwell, to Santiago and Gregoria Garcia Rosas (who predeceased him), Carmen leaves behind a brother, Vincent Rosas, and a sister, Nicky Rodriguez, both of Bryan. He loved indulging in simple things: smoking and coin collecting, watching Aggie football and touring Galveston. As a younger man, Carmen also enjoyed watching drag racing and visiting his local cantina. He never ran out of things to do as he cared for his home and yard, working hard to support his family. Additionally, Carmen was thoughtful and loving, and he knew his own mind. He loved to work and sponsored several charities, including donating time and resources to his church, Santa Teresa.

    Amongst those mourning Carmen are his children, John Rosas and Lydia and husband Jesus F. Garcia (all of Bryan), three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Likewise, his best friend, Kenny Ramirez, wishes him to rest in the peace of the Lord.

    The Life Celebration of Carmen Rosas will begin with his loved ones receiving visitors from 11am-2pm on Wednesday, December 2, 2015 at Hillier Funeral Home of Bryan. Immediately following will be a recitation of the rosary and final services, officiated by Deacon Ted Baker; afterwards, interment will be at Mt. Calvary Cemetery.
