German-American community says goodbye to dedicated member, David J. Roscoe

March 12, 2015 From Karl W. Werner


It is with great sadness that our Association has learned of the passing of our friend and colleague, David J. Roscoe. David was a long time educator and volunteered his services for many years to support the Cannstatter Volkfest Verein and our Association. We will miss his insights, counsel, and friendship. Please keep David's family in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this this time of loss.

Relatives and friends are invited to his Memorial Service Sunday, 2 P.M., at Bryn Athyn Cathedral. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to make donations to the Academy of the New Church; Bryn Athyn New Church, or the Cannstatter Volksfest-Verein.
