Dad passed away at home with his family at his bedside Saturday March 31, 2012. He was 69 years old. He was survived by his son Todd Rousu, daughter Deanna Rousu and granddaughter Alysia Noriega. His parents were Wayne Rousu and Emelia Haid. Dad was a veteran and served in the Army from 1966 to 1968. He was stationed in Germany and had many stories about how he enjoyed traveling to many countries while he was in the service. After returning from the service he married Betty Faulkner and started a family. They were married 14 years.Dad retired at age 57 from Gai's Bakery where he worked as a delivery salesman for 25 years. Dad enjoyed working for the company where he had many friends and liked serving his customers. I remember when I was a kid he used to take me on his route sometimes. It was so much fun. He gave me dough nuts and took me out to lunch. I remember how friendly he was to his customers and fellow employee's. He took pride in his work. Prior to the bakery. Dad had a fire extinguisher business and also worked at service station plus other odd jobs.There were many things dad enjoyed doing in life. He enjoyed spending as much time as he could with his son, daughter, and granddaughter. Such as family dinners, holidays, playing cards, golfing, watching sporting events, etc. He really loved watching his granddaughter play sports and other activities. He also had many family and friends he enjoyed spending time with playing golf and playing cards or just hanging out and going on vacation trips. Dad also loved cruising in his 96 Mazda Miata convertible with Uncle Don.Dad had a great sense of humor even through his last couple years during his illnesses. He kept a good attitude and never lost hope through it all. We are proud of him and admire how strong he was his whole life. We both feel honored to have been able to take care of him and be by his side. There are no words to express the pain of his loss. And he will be in our hearts forever.
