Personal Story: Christian Burgo Rosa

Jun 12, 1982 to May 14, 2004

Christian Burgo Rosa was the son of Carolina and Alfredo Rosa. He was their 2nd youngest and very dear to their hearts. Christian was attending Job Corps to obtain his high school diploma but unfortunately his dream was short-lived when he was gunned down on his way from picking up his clothes from the cleaners.

Christian had many aspirations and dreams. He loved to go fishing with his dad and even more so he loved being the captain on his dad’s boat. Christian had a whole life ahead of him and sometimes it’s still hard to believe he’s gone. His legacy was to take care of family and always put your best foot forward to achieve what you want out of life.

Christian was also blessed to have a beautiful, smart and energetic daughter Mekaya who will carry on his traits, like his smile, his loving attitude and his loyalty to his family. Christian was only 21 when he died so may not have gotten to achieve of all his goals but his spirit will live on and he shall never be forgotten.

Christian is survived by his parents Carolina and Alfredo, sister and brothers Melissa Rosa, Domingas, Roberto and David, daughter Mekaya, nephews DJ, Malik, Chris and Devin, a host of uncles, aunts, cousin and friends.
