Steven Scott Rose

October 29, 1956 — January 4, 2019

Steven Scott Rose, 62, born Oct. 29, 1956, to James Edward Rose and Alexandria Louise Rose in Dallas, Texas, was suddenly called to meet his maker on Jan. 4, 2019, at his home in Kingsland, Texas.

Graveside services for family and friends will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, at Bluffton Stone Cemetery, where he will be laid to rest next to his beloved wife, Ruby Ann Richardson Rose. Bluffton Cemetery is located 10 miles outside of Llano, heading north-east on Texas-29 East. Turn left on Ranch Road 2241, and continue straight for 8.4 miles, then turn left into Bluffton Cemetery.

Steve is survived by his brother, Chris Rose and wife, Sandra, of Odessa, Texas; his sister, Cynthia Shapley and husband, Kim, of Waco, Texas; as well as his sister, Karen Weeks and husband, Greg, of Midland, Texas. Steve is also survived by his mother, Alexandria Louise Rose of Midland.

In addition, Steve was a treasure to his nieces and nephews — Kimberly and Rowdy of Lampasas, Texas, Jennifer and Matt Hantelmann of Round Rock, Texas, Branden and Sherry Weeks of Midland, Heather and Matt Hajek of Waco, and Logan Rose of Odessa. In addition, he had 10 great nieces and nephews.

Steve’s extended family includes aunts and uncles, Jeannie and Chuck Renne of Denver, Colorado, Mary Tamm of Princeton, New Jersey, Don and Carole Haroz of Keswick, Virginia, Tom and Judy Haroz of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Mike and Betsy Haroz of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Ann and Larry Krumm of Tyler, Texas, and cousins too numerous to mention.

Steve spent his early years in Midland, and after graduating high school, he moved to Austin, Texas, where he and Ruby started Quality Custom Decks LLC. His construction talent is well known and sought after in Austin as well as surrounding areas. Those who worked for Steve and helped to make his company the success that it is, include Gene Keely and Luis Garduno and their many team members.

Although Steve and Ruby did not have children, their family consisted of their precious dogs, Angel and Jack.

Steve’s love of adventure was evident by his love of boats, motorcycles and fishing. Steve was also a master gardener with beautiful plants in his yard.

Steve played baseball as he was growing up and was good enough that his coach at one point called him to return from vacation so he could save the team. Not sure how the score turned out.

Steve was also a very caring person and would help anyone that he could. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed by family and friends.

May his Heavenly Father welcome Steve with open arms.
