Kenneth Rose Jr. of Newport was lost at sea along with his father, Kenneth Martin Rose, while on a fishing trip off the coast of Cape May, N.J., on Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2009.

A memorial will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Broad Creek Church of God at 394 Broad Creek Loop Road, Newport. Visitation with the family will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Mr. Rose was born in New Bern on Aug. 29, 1960, to Kenneth Martin Rose and Jean Marie Daniels Rose. After high school he joined his father in commercial fishing. Throughout his life he was a musician, avid hunter, photographer and lover of horses. He was happiest in nature whether on the sea, in the mountains or on the plains. He was heavily involved with his local church, the Broad Creek Church of God, playing bass in the church band. He was the captain of the fishing boat Sea Tractor on which he and his father, Kenneth Rose, were lost at sea.

He is survived by two sisters, Maria Rose and partner Tosca Chiseri and Suzanne Arenas and husband Robert Arenas; a niece Meagan Arenas; a nephew Joe Killian and wife Amanda Killian; and many loving uncles, aunts and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his mother Jean Marie Daniels Rose.

Arrangements will be handled by Munden Funeral Home and Crematory Inc. of Morehead City.

    I have known Mr Kenny and Kenny Jr my entire life. My daddy fished with them, our boats ran side by side. Maria, if you see this, my heart goes out to you. These were two of the finest people I have ever known, and I love them like family. Rest in peace, with God.

    Kenny Jr was my family's farrier for many years. My mother owned an old, crippled horse that Kenny would allow to lay on him while he trimmed her good leg. He was always patient understanding she was in pain. He was the kindest, nicest person to our horses and we were all sorry when he quit the farrier business. My family's thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones. Rest in Peace Kenny, you were a true Horse Lover.
