Gary Rosenberg z”l

star-of-david Gary Rosenberg z”l, brother of Shauna Sadow of Boulder, died today of refractory intracranial hypertension. Gary Benjamin Rosenberg (Yosef Binyamin ben Gershom v’Bluma) was 37 years old and surrounded by his loving family until the end.

Gary was a happy, loving guy who loved trivia and gaming and was studying to become an archival librarian with the hopes of getting a job caring for the Grateful Dead Archive at UC Santa Cruz. When you became his friend you were his friend forever. He was a Young Judea Year Course graduate (like his sister & brother-in-law) and the family have requested that any donations in his honor and memory should be made to the “Gary Rosenberg Year Course Scholarship Fund”. Please just note Gary’s name is the “note/comments” box on Paypal or your check.

The family will be receiving shiva calls at the home of Arti & Josh Goldstein this coming Sunday from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, with minyanim at 6:00 pm on Sunday and Monday evenings at the same place.

Alav hashalom – peace on the soul of Yosef Binyamin.

Hamakom y’nachem – blessings of strength and comfort to Shauna, Phil, Noah, Jacob, Kate and all the family on this tragic and untimely loss; to Gary’s mother and stepfather, sisters, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews. A beloved son, brother, uncle and friend who will be so very missed.
