​Matthew Taylor Rose



Matthew Taylor Rose was born on August 25, 1986 in Plainfield, New Jersey to Robert & Jennifer Rose. Matthew passed on February 8, 2017 at the age of 30.

Matthew was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Louis & Arlene Rose
of Port Orange Florida and his maternal grandmother, Sally Kathleen White.
Matthew is survived by his maternal grandfather and step grandmother Ralph and
Betty White of Hampstead, North Carolina; parents, Robert & Jennifer Rose of
Bluffton, South Carolina; two brothers, Robert Rose of Bridgewater, New Jersey,
and Brandon Mise of Wilmington, North Carolina; two sisters, Janine Rose of
Parsippany, New Jersey, and Allison Mise of Wilmington, North Carolina, nephews
Nicholas Rose, Matthew Alves, Toby Mise, and Mason Rose and numerous loving
aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. His best friend was his cousin David Hiatt of
Greensboro, NC.

Matt was a special person. His love and genuine concern for others, especially for
his family and pets, always came before everything. He was the heart of the whole
family. His beautifully sweet and affectionate nature made him immediately loved
by everyone who knew him. He had so many wonderful talents which he shared in
a special way with each family member. He was intensely moved by music; as are
his father and brother Bob. He expressed himself through his guitar; The Beatles
were one of his favorites, as is his mothers. At his core, writing was what deeply
inspired him, as is it is for his brother Brandon. His deep connection to everyone
including animals revealed the tender and sincerest part of Matthew, very similar to
his sisters Allison & Janine.

We were all so blessed to have Matthew in our lives. He was the baby, but taught
us all the most. He gave us the gift of uniting our family as one from the moment
he was born. He was truly a gift who has touched everyone he knew, and has
impacted each one of us in his special way. He will be with us always and will
keep us all together.

Matthew will be very deeply missed by everyone that knew him. We are all proud
to call him our son, grandson, brother, cousin, nephew and friend.

His services will be held on Tuesday, February 14, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. at Bluffton
