June 1, 1939 - October 1, 2020
Arthur G. Rossiter, 81, died October 1st at his home in San Diego. Arthur was the youngest of three children born in the Bronx, N.Y. City to the late Harold G. and Dorothy E. Rossiter. After graduating in 1966 from Baruch College, N.Y., Arthur fulfilled a dream and travelled to Egypt. He visited countless tombs, temples, and sights by the Nile near Luxor, bicycling around the Valley of the Kings. Arthur had a lifelong interest in Egyptology. Retiring from Burlington Industries, Arthur moved to San Diego about 2006, where he enjoyed Balboa Park, and the swinging bridges near his Hillcrest neighborhood. Arthur had many friends, he loved to travel, and preferred serving visitors his lemon chicken or delicious curry recipes. He was a frequent volunteer in support of his community. Arthur Rossiter leaves behind many beloved friends and family, including his two elder siblings, Verna Rossiter DiSanto and Harold T. "Harry" Rossiter. Due to the COVID crisis, no service is scheduled. In the spirit of his work at food banks and charities, donations are suggested in Arthur's memory to your favorite cause.
Our organization began when our two founding members met through an ad one of them had placed in a local newspaper, looking for like-minded gay men over 40 who wanted to “socialize and pursue educational, entertainment and cultural interests”. The first meeting took place on September 7, 1993 with 10 people in attendance and we now number around 200 members. Learn more on our About page.
We cordially invite all gentlemen who would like to have a chance to socialize, engage in one or more of our many monthly activities and gain new friends, to join us. You would be most welcome, indeed.
Can we help you find something?
