Leslie Alfonso Rose Sunrise: 10th May 1941 Sunset: 3rd April 2020 Leslie Alfonso Rose was born on Saturday 10th May, 1941. He was the second born son of Percival Beresford Rose and Iona Jestina Wellington. He and his brother Louis were born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica. Leslie was baptised at the age of 13, an early declaration of his love for God and pursuit of higher spiritual learning. Iona moved to England when her children were in their teens, Louis staying in Jamaica and Leslie eventually moving to London, England to join her. Leslie’s youth in London was spent pursuing his love of music and the arts, attending Camberwell School of Arts and donning his much cherished moniker as a DJ “Count Rose - Prince of the South East!” He went on to attend Printing School in Elephant & Castle and soon after met the love of his life Florence - also known as “Gwen”. Gwen was at nursing school when they first met, and he affectionately referred to her as his “Florence Nightingale”. Gwen and Leslie married in Camberwell, South-East London on October 3rd, 1970. Having completed his printing training he went on to work as a printer for the remainder of his career. Gwen and Leslie became parents to their beloved son; Anthony, in 1973 and in 1977, to their only daughter, Katrina. Leslie joined the Aetherius Society on 5th July 1980, and remained a faithful and committed member for 40 years until his passing. Leslie’s focus was on the betterment of society, spiritual consciousness, education, and the karmic task of learning how to be compassionate towards others. Pre-eminent remained the care of the Mother Earth and the higher teachings of the Master Jesus. Leslie was much loved by all whose lives he touched, his character notable by his calm, patient manner, his ever present wisdom and his wonderfully dry humour! He is survived by his wife, Gwen, children Anthony & Katrina, grandchildren Joel, Xion and Xavier, cousins Patricia and Leslie Rose and countless other friends and family. May he rest in eternal peace.
