Alexander Court Rossman

Alexander Court Rossman, 13, of Merrimack, NH, died Thursday, May 21, 2015, at the Elliot Hospital in Manchester, NH.

Though born in California, Alex moved to Merrimack when he was 16 months old and spent the next 12 years as an active part of the Merrimack community through the YMCA, library programs, Destination Imagination, Legos, PM school program, Chess Club, band, chorus, MYA sports and finally, 7 years with Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. Alex had many wonderful qualities, but the one quality that stuck with us the most was his ability to connect with people. As his parents, we had the privilege to witness this effect again and again in the faces of those he met, as they gratefully encountered his positive attitude and ice breaking sense of humor.

With a desire to focus on the joy of his life instead of the pain of his death, his parents invite the community to join them in a Celebration of his Life at Wasserman Park, June 19th from 2-5 pm. Come out and take the time to connect with others of the community that Alex loved so much. Play games, listen to music and share thoughts and memories of Alex.

Celebration of Life – Wasserman Park 6/19 2-5 pm.
