Martin L. Rosol, Jr.

1937 – 2023

Beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather, Martin (Marty) L. Rosol Jr., passed away August 11th, 2023 at the age of 86, surrounded by family at Waccamaw Community Hospital.

Marty was born on January 20th, 1937, in New Britain, CT to Martin L. Rosol Sr. and Helen (Niedzwiecki) Rosol. He attended the Taft School in Watertown, CT, before moving on to undergraduate study at Yale University. He received his DDS in general dentistry from Columbia University, where he served as the Senior Class President. After 8 years of running his own dental practice, he pursued a specialty in orthodontics at Boston University. Marty practiced orthodontics for several decades while lovingly raising his family in Longmeadow, MA.

Marty’s greatest joy in life was spending time with his wife and family. He loved to fish the Long Island Sound with his children and grandchildren while residing in Point O’Woods, CT and later Groton Long Point, CT. He never turned down a good glass of wine with family and friends and was always up for a competitive card game after dinner. Marty was fortunate to spend much of his life exploring the world with his partner, best friend, and love of his life, Jeanne. He returned with riveting stories of scuba diving, riding camels, and hot air balloon trips. He also looked forward to annual family trips to St. Martin in the Caribbean, during which his days were filled with games, snorkeling, beautiful meals, and laughter.

Marty was a humble, devout Catholic who dedicated his life to helping others. In retirement, he poured his energy into volunteering orthodontic care for struggling children and families in his community. He often expressed his gratitude for the positive impact these patients had on him, inspiring us all to strive to be better. Marty cherished frequent visits with his family and friends during the last 16-years of his life which he spent in Pawleys Island, SC. He loved discussing what was happening in their lives and watching the next generations of his family grow in front of him.

Marty is survived by his loving wife Jeanne Rosol, sons Michael and Mark Rosol, daughters Jennifer Vanderleeden and Jodi Devine, seven grandchildren, and four great grandchildren. He is predeceased by his sisters Clara Ozimek and Irene Kawecki, and his brother Eugene M. Rosol.
