Dana Robert Rose, of Wanamingo, passed away on September 8, 2023, at his home.
Dana Rose was born on November 19, 1963, in Castro Valley CA. He graduated from Esperanza High School, in Anaheim, CA, in 1981. Dana is the youngest of two sons. Growing up, he was extremely close to his older brother Darin. Although they had different hobbies, they grew up best friends. In high school, Dana had the ultimate passion for football and surfing. He was even featured in the local newspaper twice for his outstanding performance on the field. As high school came to an end, he found a new passion – plumbing. He got an education as a Master Plumber, and he was just that! Dana was the hardest worker and worked for several plumbing contractors in the metro area. So many coworkers had the opportunity to work with and learn from Dana. He was so patient and kind, and he enjoyed his coworkers as well. Dana had the ability to touch the heart of everyone that he encountered. He left everyone with a smile on their face. You could never have a bad day when Dana was around.
Survivors include his children Katarina Rose, of Scottsdale, AZ, Nicole Imgrund, of Wanamingo, Michael Gray, of St. Paul, and Justin Landes, also of St. Paul. He had the ultimate love for his family and the ability to provide for them. As his kids grew up, Dana was thought of as “the breakfast king.” The kids never failed to wake up to the smell of bacon and eggs and a smile on their dad’s face in the Kitchen. Dana has five grandchildren who he adored with all of his heart: Rozlynn, Jazzmine, Aubrey, Landen, and Jaxxtin. Watching his grandchildren grow up to be such wonderful and strong human beings filled his heart with joy. You would always catch him on the sidelines at Landen’s basketball games, being the loudest one in the room as he cheered.
Dana was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Allen and Carol Sue Rose.
