ROSENBAUM, Dennis E. Mar 23, 1935 – May 27, 2013 Denny Rosenbaum was born in Omaha and was raised by his grandparents, Dan and Jenny Mundy in North Bend, Nebraska. He graduated from North Bend High School in 1953. Denny served two years with the U. S. Navy during the Korean War. He married Genelle (Pollard) Rosenbaum. Married for fifty-four years, the couple had two daughters, Tami Jackson and Janette Rosenbaum, and four grandchildren: triplets Brent, Claire and Sarah Jackson, and D. J. Smith. Denny and his family enjoyed snow skiing, traveling, camping, and being at the Phoenix house in the winter. Denny so disliked the cold weather that he would take the family to a warm destination to spend every Christmas holiday. Denny loved being with his grandkids, whether teaching Brent, Sarah and Claire to drive at the same time or attending D. J.’s lacrosse games. Denny started Rosenbaum Electric thirty years ago, and for forty years he was a member of Local 22 union. He also served as President of NECA, and also served on the apprentice board. At the age of 55 Denny achieved another milestone when he earned his private pilot’s license. He was so proud that he could recognize all the small towns in western Nebraska by each town’s water tower. Denny was a patron member of Henry Doorly Zoo, Joslyn Art Museum, and the Durham Museum. A lifetime member of the Methodist Hospital Volunteers in Partnership and VFW Post 247, he was also a member of St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church in Omaha.
