Leonard H. Rosser, age 74, passed away on Friday, April 30, 2021, after a long hard fight against heart and kidney disease. Mr. Rosser was a loving husband, father and grandfather who adored his grandchildren. His family brought him the most joy and were his reason for living.
Mr. Rosser was born in Atlanta, Georgia, April 12, 1947, and was the baby of 9. He leaves behind his wife, Luanne Rosser, son Miles (Kelly) Rosser, daughter Angela (Boyd) Young, grandsons Aaron Rosser, Gabriel Young, granddaughter Delilah Young, sister Ann Gilbert, brother Milton Rosser, sister-in-law, Sara Rosser, Melba Rosser, Nancy Rosser and many, many nieces, nephews and other friends and family. He is preceded in death by his parents, Willis Miles Rosser, Martha Rosser, brothers, Willis Miles Rosser, Jr., Melvin Rosser, Alton Rosser, Gary Rosser, Ronnie Rosser, and sister Charlotte Morrison.
He loved to work in his garage workshop and spending time sitting in his rocking chair on the front porch talking with his family or having his morning coffee on the back deck with his daughter Angela. There has never been a tighter father/daughter bond, than the one he and Angela had. Before deteriorating eyesight caused him to hang up his keys, he spent many days riding his beloved Harley and driving around in his little red truck. He loved and lived life to the fullest.
God saw he was getting tired,
And a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around him,
And whispered "Come with me",
With tearful eyes we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away,
Although we love him dearly,
We could not make him stay,
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best,
Although his heart stopped beating,
His love will always remain,
His absence puts upon our hearts,
A very heavy strain,
For now he is in a place of everlasting rest,
We just have to understand that God,
He only takes the best.
