Dr. Stanley Rosen

Dr. Stanley Rosen

US Army veteran and former Denver resident, Dr. Stanley Rosen, passed away on Feb. 11, 2023. He was 91. A service was held on Feb. 13 at Zion Gardens in Chicago, Ill., officiated by Rabbi Yoseph Samuels of Chabad-Lubavitch of Wisconsin. Dr. Rosen died in Denver, and Feldman Mortuary made the arrangements.

A native of Oklahoma City, Okla., Dr. Rosen was born on April 7, 1931. His father, Rabbi Morton Rosen, had pulpits around the US and settled the family in Chicago during Dr. Rosen’s youth. Dr. Rosen attended Hebrew Theological College and Roosevelt University.

In 1951, Dr. Rosen married Bernice Barach in Chicago and the couple moved to Israel. Shortly afterward, Dr. Rosen was drafted into the US Army; he served in the Korean War as a radio operator and correspondent for the Stars and Stripes newspaper.

After the war, Dr. and Mrs. Rosen moved to Zurich, Switzerland, where Dr. Rosen studied medicine.

Following his residency in Chicago, Dr. Rosen established an internal medicine practice in Kenosha, Wisc., where he was later chief of staff for Kenosha Memorial Hospital.

Dr. Rosen was also the cantor and president of Congregation Bnei Tzedek in Kenosha.

Dr. and Mrs. Rosen moved to Colorado to be closer to family. Following Mrs. Rosen’s passing in 2010, Dr. Rosen made aliyah to Israel, then returned to the US to marry Judith Morrill. They made their home in Kenosha, until Dr. Rosen’s recent illness precipitated a return to Denver, where he passed away.

“He was known for his dignity, for being a great diagnostician, his mischievous sense of humor and his scholarship,” his family said.

Survivors are wife Judith; daughter Dr. Lynn (Tzvi Horowitz) White, stepdaughter Jennifer Morrill; grandchildren Jay White, Sharon (Chris Brown) White and Rivkie White; sister Carol (Rabbi Hillel) Yampol; and brother-in-law Jerry Barach. He was predeceased by his son Jeffrey Rosen.

Contributions may be made to Beth Israel Sinai Congregation of Racine, Wisc., or Chabad of Kenosha.
