Milo Allen Rose
Feb. 6, 1951 – Sept. 5, 2017
Owner of Kern River Vacation Trailers, Milo Allen Rose passed away in his home in Kernville, Calif., on September 5. Born on February 6, 1951, to parents Dorothy and Claude Rose in Hanford, California, “Allen” was the eldest of his siblings Claudia and Randy. Before graduating from Los Banos High School in 1969, Allen was an all-star track athlete and received merits for the 440 and Relay. As a young adult, he pursued a career as an automotive mechanic and spent time exploring the western United States, often hitchhiking from place to place and making friends along the way. Always passionate and interested, he was never afraid to engage with new people and experiences. In 1981, after being set up on a blind date, he fell in love with the woman he would spend the rest of his life with, Marcie Rose, and proposed to her two weeks after they met. In their years together he became a business owner, helped raise three children and was a prominent member of his community. He was a hardworking, active, free-spirited outdoorsman who cared deeply for the people around him, always lending opportunities to those in need, and was a passionate advocate for his family and friends. He was fun, funny, and anything he was involved in was bound to be worthwhile. He stuck his neck out for the people he cared about, even when most wouldn’t. And because of that, people were devoted to him. He made an impact on the lives of everyone he met and, above all, he saw the good in everyone. Allen is survived by his mother Dorothy Rose; his wife, Marcie (Autry) Rose; his siblings, Claudia (Rose) Grant and Randy; his children, Thomas Webb, Jessica and Travis Rose; and his grandchildren, Kekoa Olivera, Marcie-May and Kemper Webb; as well as several cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends.
