Waterbury - Edwin Santiago Rosado, 65, of Waterbury, CT passed peacefully into eternal life at his home on May 13, 2020.
He graduated from Crosby High School in Waterbury CT. Edwin was Leader of Troop 214 with The Boys Scouts of America. He then Founded The Troop 214 Precision Drill Team. Their popularity grew rapidly, and their presence was requested at several activities, events, and parades throughout Connecticut. “Thank you for your dedication and leadership; Troop Dismissed.” as quoted by a fellow troop leader.
He later developed a passion for culinary and worked at several establishments as a prep cook. He was also a proud member of PRYO (Puerto Rican Youth Organization) in Waterbury CT. A facility that provided a common area for local youth in the community to play basketball, arcade games, pool and to safely gather together.
Family was what kept Edwin so vibrant and alive. He looked forward to our large family gatherings, yearly camping trip, and late-night shenanigans. But most of all, his title as 3rd base coach of The LFMF softball team, which consisted of family members. His appreciation for music was undeniable and his moves were infectious. He was happiest when he was on the dance floor. He inherited the name “Disco Danny” after displaying his fancy footwork, silly facial expression and several friendly dance battles at family functions. When he wasn’t dancing, he was playing the harmonica and when he wasn’t doing this, he was watching any New York game that was being televised; except the Mets of course. He admired the Giants and the Knicks but was a big kid when it came to his Yankees. If it wasn’t evident by the sports apparel he was wearing or the memorabilia covering his entire bedroom, then maybe his tattoos were living proof. It didn’t matter what team you supported because once you met Edwin you became an immediate fan. We can guarantee he is chanting his favorite quote, ‘Send it in!”.
He is survived by his children, Eddie Rosado and spouse Amy of California, Edwin Rosado and spouse Amanda-Lil of Florida, and Stephanie Lowe and fiancé Derek of Vermont. His siblings, George Rosado and spouse Gladys, Wilfred Rosado and the late Carmen Rosado, Hector Rosado and spouse Gloria, Wilson Rosado and spouse Naida, Elizabeth Torres and spouse Pedro, Melvin Rosado and spouse Denise, and Betzaida Rosado as well as several nieces, nephews, grandchildren and cousins.
Private services are being held on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at The Bergin Funeral Home in Waterbury, CT. His remains will be interred on May 29, 2020 at 11am at Calvary Cemetery in Waterbury, CT.
At the family’s request, cards and contributions can be sent to The Rosado Family PO Box 4836, Waterbury, CT 06704.
