Rod Brose Obituary

It is with broken hearts that the family of Rod Brose announces his passing, which occurred unexpectedly in his home on January 22, 2024. Born in North Bay, Ontario, on June 2, 1962, residing in Saint John, New Brunswick. He was the son of Gordon and Grace (Norman) Brose. 

A meticulous craftsman, Rod owned his own carpentry business for over 35 years. He specialized in cabinetry, and took great pride in the quality of his work. He adored his grandchildren and loved being able to live out a second childhood through them. He would go to the toy aisle anytime he had the chance; to see what they would all enjoy playing with. Rod fondly enjoyed his yearly fishing trip around deer island with long time friend Glen McKenney. A hobby of his was making the best homemade red wine for friends and family. If you were lucky enough to hear his beautiful baritone voice, it was something you’d never forget.  

Rod will be sadly missed by his wife of over 10 years, Laura (VanZuylen/Watters); his children: Michelle (Mark) Comeau, Katharyn (Jacob) Rogers, Devon Brose, and Jessica (Scott) Rutherford; grandchildren: Cameron, Landen, Sonny, Sullivan, and Violet; as well as his previous wife, Kim (Dave) Bailey. He was predeceased by his sister Lorelei Brose. 

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Fundy Funeral Home, 230 Westmorland Rd., Saint John, NB (506-646-2424). Visitation will be held on Saturday, January 27, 2024, from 2 – 4 and 6 – 8 PM. A Funeral Service will take place in the Fundy Chapel on Sunday, January 28, 2024, at 2PM with reception to follow.
