Mr. William A. Rosner

December 9, 1919 — July 26, 2019

Monroe, NJ
William Arthur Rosner, 99, passed away on July 26, 2019. He was married to the late Faye Rosner from 1941 to 1974, and to the late Louise Rosner from 1974 to 2013. He grew up on the Lower East Side of New York City, and lived in the North Stelton area of Piscataway, Highland Park, Middletown, and Monroe Township. He was active in the labor movement and other causes, never crossed a picket line, and was very interested in politics all of his life. He worked in industrial instrument technology and sales, including a defense plant during World War II. He built models and doll houses, and the birdhouses he built for his community, The Ponds, are still there. He was known for his love of family, old stories and silly jokes.
William will be sadly missed by his son Jeff Rosner, daughter-in-law Anna-Liisa Rosner, and daughter Ellen Rosner; step-children Carol Sterling and her husband Russ and Andrew Rose; grandchildren Ula Kauppi and her husband Alan, Morgan Peyton and her husband Adam, Jessica Karczewski and her husband Richard, and Daniel and Jake Rose; great-grandchildren Katie, Eric and Matthew Kauppi and Logan Karczewski; and several nephews, nieces and cousins.
A celebration of William’s life will be held on Saturday, August 10 at 2:00 PM at the Forsgate Country Club, Forsgate Drive, Monroe Township. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity.
