Cook Southland Funeral Chapel - Rosenbargo(2023)

Kevin Roy Rosenbargo passed away peacefully in Medicine Hat while surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, February 23, 2023, after a brief but incredibly courageous battle with cancer.

Kevin was born on April 24, 1972, in Medicine Hat. He loved to be doing “stuff”; everything and anything, as long as it was outdoors. Kevin did not like sitting still. Hunting and fishing were just two of his passions. He could think up the plans for and build anything one could want as he had a knack for fixing anything broken.

Kevin had a heart as big as was allowed for one single human. He loved people and animals and treated both with a soft-hearted kindness. Kevin always had a spare minute to talk and always willing to help when he could, as this was his generous nature. He loved to laugh and had that giggle that is going to be missed by so many. Everyone who knew him, loved him. Everyone who loved him, will be missing him everyday for the rest of their lives.

He leaves behind to cherish his beautiful memory, his partner and soulmate, Laure Patterson; son, Ty Rosenbargo and daughter, Karlee Rosenbargo; step-children, Christian, Ryan and Sarah Patterson; two sisters, Sarah (Donavan Wollman) Rosenbargo and their children Maddison, Elizabeth and Alexandria; Joleen (Allan) Pasutto and their children, Anna and Katie; parents-in-law, Arthur and Dora Gill; sister-in-law, JoAnna Gill; brother-in-law, Randy (Charlotte) Gill and their children Cheyenne and Liam; nieces, Logan and Jaralyn McDonald; three precious grandbabies, William, Ariel and Alistair Patterson and their mother, Raven Johnstone as well as so many more extended family, friends, aunts, uncles and cousins.

Kevin was predeceased by his loving mother, Carol Kornelson; his father, Joe Rosenbargo; grandparents, Roy and Leah Loose and Alma and Charlie Rosenbargo; aunt, Rosalyn Cooke; uncle, Donald Loose; brother-in-law, Darrell Gill and many other family members that he loved and has now been reconciled with. Our loss is their gain.

A Celebration of Kevin’s life will be held at a future date when family and friends can get together to enjoy stories and laughter. Further announcements will be made at that time.Memorial donations in Kevin’s name may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, 200 - 325 Manning Road N.E., Calgary, Alberta, T2E 2P5.

    Laure and family,

    My sincere condolences to all of you at this sad time. It is good that you have so many happy times to remember. I still remember the little boy that I knew at Kitchener School. Thinking of you. Take good care.

    I can't believe such a great guy is gone. He truly was a one of a kind. Although we hadn't seen each other in many years, I still considered him a great friend. Life takes us in different directions but we still care about each other. He will truly be missed. I wish his family and friends strength and love.

    Laure and Family, our heartfelt condolences go out to you. Although we only knew Kevin for a short time, we grew to respect Kevin and his ability to associate so extremely well with people. Never hesitated to oblige and was a godsend to Village of Empress as Foreman.
