            William Paul Rosskamp, Jr., 67, of Water Station Run Road, Lonaconing, died Friday, February 11, 2011, at Western Maryland Regional Medical Center, Cumberland  with his wife and children by his side. 
            Bill was born March 5, 1943, to proud parents William Paul and Elsie E.   (Newell)  in Connellsville, PA.
            Bill graduated from Fort Ashby High in 1961 and attended Potomac State College. He served in the U.S. Navy and worked in the family bait business, but he was most known for his career at Sears – especially in the hardware department.
            Bill married Mary Margaret “Margie” Miller on December 18, 1971, and moved to Lonaconing.
            He was an avid race fan. He also enjoyed fishing and watching his favorite basketball teams – the University of Maryland Terrapins and the Allegany College Trojans. His most cherished time, though, was spent with his wife, children, and his dog, Buddy.
            He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Margie; daughter, Misty, Huntsville, AL; son, Travis, Nashville, TN; sister, Patricia Oster, Springfield; brother, James, Martinsburg; sister-in-law, Linda Rosskamp, Rawlings; two nephews, Davey Shriver (Bridgette and family), Fort Ashby; Rick Rosskamp (Tara and family), Short Gap; five nieces, Judy Shriver (son, Michael), Wiley Ford; Melody Litten (Joe and family), Winchester; Penny Crouse (Greg and family), Leesburg; Laurian Lucas (and family); Katrina Rosskamp (and family), Rawlings; numerous cousins; sisters-in-law, Theresa Hutcheson (Bob), Huntsville, AL; Lois Tow (Ron), Brainerd, MN; Dorothy Miller, Farwell, MI; Marilyn Miller, Farwell, MI; brothers-in-law, Glen Miller (Martha), Fayetteville, TN; Lawrence Miller (Dorothy), Aliquippa, PA; John “Jack” Miller (Juanita), Barton; Arlen Miller (Virginia), Frostburg; Curlee Miller (Debbie), Cumberland; together with all of their families, but he was Uncle Bill to many more.
            Bill was preceded in death by his parents, as well as his youngest brother, George; brother-in-law, Norman Oster; mother and father-in-law, Lawrence and Marabel Miller; brothers-in-law, William Miller and James Miller.
            He was a member of the Frostburg congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
            Bill was a kind and loving husband, father, and friend. He always treated people with kindness and respect. His quick wit and unique way with words made a lasting impression on our lives. He was a shining example of what a man should be. He will be tremendously missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him.
            Family and Friends will be received at the Eichhorn-McKenzie Funeral Home, Lonaconing (www.eichhornmckenzie.com) on Sunday, February 13, 2011 from 2-4 PM and 6-8 PM. A funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Monday, February 14, 2011 at 10:00 AM with speaker Mr. Douglas Robertson officiating. Entombment will be held at Restlawn Memorial Gardens, LaVale.

Dear Margie,

There isn't to much anyone can say right now that will help ease your pain.
We just wanted to let you know that you & your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

What a wonderful day when we will be able to welcome back all those we have lost in death and Rev. 21: 3,4 will be fulfilled.

Our heart goes out to you knowing its not even been a year since we lost Jim and now you have lost Bill. May Jehovah be with you in the days and weeks to come and lean on him when you don't think you can put one foot in front of the other, he will be there for you no matter what time of the day or night you call on him "He Is There" for you.

With Much Love & Sympathy,

Kirby & Alice Crosley

Margie and family;
We are so sorry and very sad to hear about Bill's passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers and know you are loved by many. Our prayer for you is in Numbers 6:24-26 which says "May Jehovah bless you and keep you. May Jehovah make his face shine toward you, and may he favor you. May Jehovah lift up his face toward you and assign peace to you." Never let go of Jeohvah's right hand so you can welcome Bill back in the new system. We love you.

I worked with Bill at Sears in the late 70's. He was always friendly and helpful. I knew his dad from being in the Train club in Ridgeley. I saw him many times throughout the years and he was always kind and friendly as well as humorous. I will miss him very much and my heart goes out to all his family and friends. I hope you all carry on his goodwill and spirit.
