Text size

Leesburg, FL - Daniel James Rosebush, 73, passed away unexpectedly at home on June 20, 2017. One of 16 children, he was born April 22, 1944 in Wytopitlock, Maine to the late Leon and Mildred (Caron) Rosebush. He was a U.S. Air Force veteran having served as an Airman Second Class from 1961-65. Danny was a mason by trade and well known for his meticulous artistry in brick work.
He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Mary Jo (Kelly) Rosebush of Leesburg, FL; their dog Lila; three daughters, Lisa Ann Miller (Charles) of Chattanooga, TN, Jennifer Lynn Twardosky (Eric) of Merrimack, NH; Karen Deanne Ray and fiancé Joey Goodridge of Amherst, NH. The grandchildren, who will miss their "Pepe" very much: Tucker, Zachariah and Theresa Twardosky, Emma (Miller) Wagner. Great grandchild, Sophie Wagner. Two brothers Louie and Gene Rosebush; five sisters Mildred Hashey, Irene Kenyan, Stella Clement, Ann Sossong, Charity Richards.
In addition to his parents he was predeceased by four brothers Paul, Dennis, Thomas and Robert; sisters Bessie Modery, Alice Rosebush, Edith Parlee, Frances Goodine.
Danny (Pepe) had many loves- his wife, family, Goofy (their dog who passed away) corvettes, Harleys, boating, golfing and riding roller coasters with the grandkids. He was a huge jokester and he lovingly called everyone "Cupcake." We will miss the hours on end he spent playing cards/hot dice or cribbage with the grandkids and siblings, as well as "Stinkin Pup!" he hollered out at those who he lost to.
A Memorial Mass will be held in Maine at a later date. Until we see you again, all our love.
