Obituary

Mr. Ronald M. Rosivack, 76, died Saturday, September 11, 2021, in his home, surrounded by the love of his caring family.

Family and friends are invited to the visitation in the Kowalski Funeral Home, 515 Roselle Street, Linden on Thursday, September 16th. from 4:00-7:00PM.  On Friday, September 17th., at 8:15AM, everyone will start to gather in the funeral home where a prayer service will begin at 8:45AM, followed by the funeral mass to be offered in the Divine Mercy Parish of Rahway at 10:00AM.  The prayers of committal will precede Mr. Rosivack’s entombment in the family crypt in Rosedale Cemetery in Linden.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Mr. Rosivack’s  memory to The Divine Mercy Parish Soup Kitchen, 232 Central Avenue, Rahway, NJ 07065.

Ronald, the son of the late Felicia Glenn Rosivack and the late Louis O. Rosivack, was born in Jersey City, New Jersey.  He spent his formative years growing up in Linden, New Jersey and he settled in Rahway, New Jersey forty-four years ago. 

Mr. Rosivack was an accountant and the Director of Finance for Krasdale Foods, Inc. in White Plains, New York for seventeen years prior to his retirement in 2006.

Mr. Rosivack proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy during the Viet Nam War and locally, he was a member of the Linden Knights of Columbus, Council #2859.  In his free time, Mr. Rosivack like to test his skills at Sudoku and crossword puzzles. He thoroughly enjoyed professional football, especially the New York Jets where, as a season ticket holder, you could always find him in his reserved seats in his long-standing section.  Mr. Rosivack loved spending time at Cape Cod, where his days were filled with clamming, fishing, crabbing or enjoying the sounds of the crashing waves on the beautiful beaches.  Yet, even with all these interests, Mr. Rosivack would drop everything, at a moment’s notice to simply be with his family and friends.  Somehow spending time with his grandkids was always at the top of his “to do” list.  Everything else was definitely far less important. 

Predeceased by his brother, Richard “Dick” J. Rosivack in 2013, Mr. Rosivack is survived by his wife of forty-seven years, Mary Ann Walters Rosivack; his two daughters, Linda M. Smoot and her husband, Eric and Kathleen E. Marretta and her husband, Jeffrey; his brother, Gerald Rosivack and his six grandchildren, Kiara Crispin, Aedin Crispin, Rose Marie Smoot, Oliver Smoot, Frank Marretta and Joseph Marretta.

Mr. Rosivack was one of a kind, a true gentleman, who will be missed tremendously, but will never be forgotten.
