David was predeceased by his beloved wife Beverly, his son David Rosette, parents Philip and Rosemary Rosette, and his brother Philip Rosette.

In 1985, with a dear friend, he co-founded Optelec, which devised magnifying instruments for people with vision issues. David was very proud of the company, which was eventually sold in 1998. He continued working as a consultant until his retirement in 2010.

David would want to thank his amazing team at Harborside Hospice Care, his Team of Doctors at Mass General Hospital and the wonderful Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue of Kingston, NH.

In Lieu of flowers - David would rather you do an act of kindness for someone, love a furry friend, help a turtle cross the road or just take a minute to sing your favorite Jimmy Buffet song…..and smile ~ “Fins Up!"

David had the heart of man I only one day I can have. He was a great guy to be around and to talk too, never did he treat you like you were beneath him but instead like all of us were equally in life. I’ll never forget the day I meet Dave and never forget the times I just got to sit and pick his brain about life. His passion for cars, his passion for life, his passion for people. David your man I’ll miss a ton. RIP. LOVE YOU BUDDY

Although I did not know David personally I wanted to send my thoughts and prayers out to Kim and the family. He sounds like he was an amazing man and I hope you have years of wonderful memories to share during this hard time. Respectfully, Gael D. Meyer.

My deepest condolences to all the Roaette clan. David was the big brother I never had, and I treasure the time we spent together. Phil looked up to him as the younger brother, and I know he valued Dave’s wisdom as they grew older. Family, business, cars and service to their country were their shared loves. I am grateful to him for his counsel over the years. Rest In Peace.
