Born to eternal life February 18, 2012, age 60, after waging a brave battle against cancer. Loving husband of Donna (Boll) Rosek for over 38 years. Father of Matthew (Melissa) and James Rosek. Proud grandfather of Cassandra, as well as twin babies due this summer. Paul is further survived by other relatives and many, many friends. Paul was born in the North Woods (Minocqua) where he returned many times over the years to share fishing, hunting and a general love for the outdoors with his wife, sons, family and friends. Paul was well known as a mechanical wizard and really could fix anything. Paul was a hard working man who understood the importance of a solid day's work. At the time of his passing, Paul was the Maintenance Operations Supervisor at the Zablocki VA Hospital in Milwaukee. Paul was an extremely engaging individual and was a bold witness for Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who never shied away from an opportunity to share the Gospel with others. There are, and will be many more souls in heaven because of his unflinching testimony before the Lord. Visitation for family and friends will be from 4-7 pm, on Friday, February 24, 2012 at Pagenkopf Funeral Home. Service will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made, if desired, to Pro-Life Wisconsin or the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee.
