    The obituary says Jack passed at 87. He did live a long life but yeah, we all want to have a healthy body life. Jack had a good life watching his son Dave play ball and coach many years. Jack saw two most amazing events in history "Phi Slama Jama and Jimmania." RIP!!

    I appreciated this article about coach Dave Rose, but I would like to correct the statement that he has "pancreatic cancer". Actually, coach Rose has neuroendocrine or NET cancer in his pancreas. This is the same cancer that took the lives of Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy's, Steve Jobs of Apple Computers, and most recently Aretha Franklin, the singer.

    I am very familiar with this form of cancer since I also have NET cancer in my pancreas. I feel that it is important to bring attention to this matter since our form of cancer is frequently misdiagnosed causing delays in correct treatments, which can extend lives and improve the quality of lives of patients suffering with this disease.

    Dave Rose is a great guy and a great coach and a great person. Losing a father puts things into the proper perspective. I lost my father many years ago at a way to young age. Best wishes to you and your family, Coach Rose!!
