Obituary for Rosario E. "Ross" Maysonet-Rosado

Rosario E. “Ross” Maysonet-Rosado, age 65, of Cornelia, passed away on Monday, January, 24, 2022.

Born on July 1, 1956, in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, he was a son of the late Rosario Maysonet and Rosalina Rosado. Ross was a highly decorated retiree from the U.S. Army, with 20 years of service. Following his retirement, he worked for a number of years in human resources for various companies. After settling here in 1997, “Habersham became God’s Country.” He was a godly man, who loved Jesus, and was a very active member of The Torch Worship Center, where he served on the Food Ministry. He was also a licensed minister with the Church of God and served on the Mission Evangelical Team. Described by his family as a very simple man, Ross filled his life with serving others. He enjoyed playing golf and had a love for salsa music and a smooth move with salsa dancing. He was also an avid UGA fan and was able to see the Dawgs win the 2022 National College Football Championship.

He is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Carmen A. Maysonet of Cornelia; children, Leslie Castillo (Luis) of Gainesville, Keila Nichols (Ritchie) of Mt. Airy, Semuel Maysonet (Rosa) of Braselton, Jezlias “Hess” Maysonet (fiancée, Autumn Bailey) of Cornelia, and Melissa Miller (Jeremy) of Clarkesville; grandchildren, Mayson Nichols (Charleigh), Nathaniel Maysonet, Amiah Maysonet, Mariana Nichols, Jaxson Maysonet, Leilani Castillo, Lucelie Castillo, Sophia Maysonet, London Miller, Adrián Maysonet, Graham Miller, Emmanuella (Ella) Maysonet; great grandchild, Miller Nichols; brothers, Javier Maysonet of Virginia, “Saro” Jr. R.E. Maysonet of Vega Alta, PR; several nieces and nephews; many brothers and sisters in Christ; and his beloved dog, Bruno.

The following excerpt was submitted by a friend of the family.

"Ross Maysonet was so much more than just a man. He was a devoted husband and father, a servant of the Lord and our great country. He spent his life serving others and leaves behind an unbelievable legacy of integrity, truth, and honor. I know many people have been touched by Ross in some way- whether it be through a church outreach, a business relationship, or even through one of his children who now carry his legacy forward. More than anything, Ross loved his family and we know he would want his wife of 48 years to be taken care of after his passing. In lieu of flowers or other sentiments, please consider donating to the family. Anything donated will go towards covering medical expenses accrued during his last six months on Earth with us."
