Obituary

Jeffersonville - Wayne Scot Rosberg, 66, passed away following a courageous battle with cancer at his home in Jeffersonville on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 with his wife by his side. Wayne was born in Attleboro, Massachusetts on July 27, 1954 son of Norman and Marcia (Congdon) Rosberg.

Wayne was a graduate of Mount Mansfield UHS, class of 1972. He attended the University of Vermont before starting his career as an engineer in public broadcasting. He worked at Vermont ETV, later Vermont PBS, for 29 years, working through the ranks from master control operator to Vice President of Engineering. He spearheaded many rebuilding projects while there. In 2001, Wayne started his own consulting firm, Cambridge Communications & Technical Services. He worked with several public broadcast stations to facilitate projects such as the conversion to digital transmission and relocation of facilities. A large portion of that work was with WCTE in Cookeville, TN and Basin PBS in Odessa, TX. He offered computer consultation and repair to many customers in the Jeffersonville area who greatly appreciated his help.

Wayne married Eva Hodgetts in 1978. They lived in Springfield for three years on an estate called Muckross. It was a beautiful location and has now become a state park. At that time, he was the transmitter supervisor on top of Mt. Ascutney. When he finished converting the four transmitters to be remote controlled, he returned to the ETV studio in Colchester. The family, which now included their son Eric, moved to Jeffersonville where they have resided for the past 40 years. The family grew with the addition of Kristy and Lee and, later, three amazing grandchildren.

Wayne enjoyed collecting and restoring antique radios. He worked to keep his various older Volvos on the road and had been rebuilding a 1970’s Triumph Spitfire. He did many house projects over the years spent in Jeffersonville and was continuing those interests until very recently.

Wayne was first diagnosed with colon cancer in 2003. He has undergone five major surgeries and several rounds of chemotherapy treatments. He was very knowledgeable about his diagnosis and the treatments he received. Always the engineer, it was frustrating for him to not be able to find the fix. He was a great support to others who also had any form of cancer.

Wayne leaves behind his loving wife of 42 years, Eva Rosberg of Jeffersonville, two sons Eric Rosberg of Boca Raton, FL, Lee Rosberg and Lauriana Capone of Middlesex, his daughter Kristy Rosberg of McKinleyville, CA, three grandchildren Cyrus Whitten of CA, Cariah Rosberg and Lucian Rosberg both of Middlesex, his parents Norman and Marcia Rosberg of Jericho, three brothers Keith Rosberg and wife Mary Ellen of TX, Glenn Rosberg and wife Anne Marie of MA, Neil Rosberg and wife Heide of Essex, his sister Loreen Hitchcock of Springfield, sister-in-law, Olga Hebert of Williston, brothers-in-law Ed Hodgetts and wife Kathy of Hancock, Dick Hodgetts of Burlington and many nieces and nephews and his cats, Mommy, Boscoe and Billy.

He was predeceased by his sister Denise Rosberg.

There are so many health care providers who have helped Wayne over the years. We wish to give special thanks to Dr. Paul Unger who has been on this ride with Wayne for so many years. Dr. Lawrence McCahill performed ground-breaking surgeries. Dr. Fong of Sloane Kettering took on a delicate reconstruction. Dr. Marroquin also performed surgery. There were countless nurses and counselors who gave special care. In the final two weeks, Lamoille Home Health & Hospice was an invaluable part of Wayne’s care.

Visiting hours will be private. A graveside service will be held on Friday, November 6, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. in the family lot in Jeffersonville Village Cemetery with Reverend Devon Thomas Officiating. Masks and social distancing will be required. Memorial contributions in Wayne’s memory may be made to Lamoille Area Cancer Network, P.O. Box 38, Lake Elmore, Vt, 05657 or to a cancer research foundation of your choice. The family invites you to share your memories and condolences by visiting awrfh.com.

Eva and family, I am sorry for your loss. Wayne was a great colleague at Vermont PBS for many years. His office was next to mine. In the old days, cigar smoke sometimes wafted over the thin walls if he had a special visitor.

Wayne helped me deal with our earliest computers, and he even sent me my first email -- quite a thrill back then.

Peace and best wishes

Wayne and I and my husband and partner Bob Arns spent forty years growing from colleagues into dear friends. Wayne was a lovely man, and it was an honor (and fun!) to work with him and to have him for a friend. I will always miss him.

Eva & family: If I had to choose an individual who had a huge, positive impact on my life, it would be Wayne. Starting way back in the 8th grade, he was a mentor, a friend and then a fellow '69 Volvo mechanic. Please accept my deepest condolences.
