Obituary for George Frank Rosendale, Jr

George Frank Rosendale, Jr. (July 1, 1979-August 23, 2017)

George Rosendale, 38, of Plantation Key has left this earth to go Fishing in Heaven. As a young boy, George relocated to the Florida Keys with his family from New Jersey. He attended Plantation Key School and Coral Shores. Growing up he played Little League and loved the New York Yankees. He was in all his glory the day he met the Great Joe DiMaggio at an Islamorada Fishing Club event where George and his family enjoyed membership. At a young age he would be out on the Florida Bay any given day running around in his Boston Whaler. His love of fishing influenced him to make it a livelihood, so he became a licensed commercial fisherman. His love of the water was passed down to his beautiful seven-year old twins Allyson and Matthew Rosendale who he adored along with the mother of his children, Kristin Etzel-Rosendale. George is survived by his parents George and Patricia Rosendale; four sisters, Cheryl Signor (Jim), Jennifer Miller-Lee (Jeff), Heidi Heckmann (Mark) and Holly Rosendale; one brother, Brian Rosendale; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. The family will be gathering at Alligator Reef in remembrance of George prior to receiving friends for a celebration of life at Smuggler's Cove, Sept. 16th at 1 p.m.
