Linda & Sheldon Kagan - 17 days ago

Dear Auntie Delores, cousins Joy, Paula and Eric, Sheldon and I were so deeply saddened to hear of Uncle Harry’s passing. So sorry we were not in town to attend his funeral; we were certainly there in spirit and were thinking of you all on such a difficult day. Uncle Harry meant so much to so many, including of course Sheldon during those days of trying to find himself in business. Sheldon will never forget Harry’s offer to help him out, however dentistry was not in his plan. I, on the other hand will never forget how you, Delores and of course Uncle Harry, welcomed me and my entire extended family into the Rosen/Kagan family. My Mom and Dad, as well as aunts and uncles so often talked of the times we spent together. Marlene and Barry and their spouses have always enjoyed the times spent with their Great Uncle Harry! Thanks for those memories. While flying home from our cruise, I picked up the “En Route” magazine on the plane - there was an ad for the Segal Centre with a picture of the front of the building. There within the picture was Uncle Harry’s sculpture. That was a sign! Uncle Harry will be missed and never forgotten. Please know that we both are thinking of you all at this very difficult time. Love Linda & Sheldon Kagan

Martin T. Tyler - 22 days ago

Dear Delores and family of Harry Rosen, My friendship with Harry dates back to 1971, when I was a McGill/MGH rotating intern. It did not take me long to realize that the laudatory remarks from the recently graduated dental students in 1971, who were hired to teach in the McGill student summer clinic, only scratched the surface of our remarkable teacher and mentor. One of my fellow interns was Ed Calderon, with whom Harry also cultivated a lifetime friendship. Our mutual friendship with the Calderons revealed that they admired you and Delores as much as I, and it was always special to be invited to renew our friendship at your home when they were in town. One of the first messages that I sent when I received the news of Harry’s passing, while attending an NFL game in Atlanta, was to Cheli and Ed Calderon—hoping that Ed could still reflect on the positive influence Harry had on him. Apart from technique, the thing that I remember most was Harry’s chairside ability to make his students feel that their efforts had merit, as he demonstrated his superior skills and helped us improve ours. Harry shared many things with us; most memorable was when he took our small group of interns skiing—sharing ski technique plus wine and snacks at the tip of the slopes. Leaving the internship for the U. S. Navy and taking some of the invaluable restorative techniques he taught with me complimented the surgical tricks taught me by Eddie Slapcoff and put me a step above many of my Navy dental colleagues. Tolerating my ignorance of sending my notes with annual Christmas cards, we stayed in touch during my Navy days as you moved from Roslyn, to Anwoth, to your current home. I will always be grateful for his support for my return to McGill in 1981, his help in passing the Canadian Boards, and by pulling me back into the friendship with invitations to your home. Hearing him passionately describe, on site, his retrieving room sized boulders from the lake adjacent to your country home are unforgettable. Again, he shared his knowledge by making a present to me of the device to move smaller rocks into place at my home in the Adirondacks. His empathy was always present; the very precious handwritten letter that he sent to me upon the passing of my father in 1988 will always be remembered. In recent years when we were at the Montreal General, I would look around and he and I were the only remaining staff from the days of Drs. Ambrose and Bentley. Harry helped me realize and accept the inevitable process of aging, as I saw him go from the distinct erect posture to the slight stoop in the neck and shoulders. I took his advice as he taught me that a good blended scotch is just as good as a single malt, and with a deep sigh regarding the aging process stated: “You can’t play with the numbers.” I appreciated his acknowledgement of my admiration and friendship for him—from the special invitations to attest his artistry to newspaper photos where you both insisted that I be included in the photo. I feel sure that he knew how much he contributed to the quality of my life and the practice of my profession. I have tried to follow the example he set of a balanced life. Indeed he was the most balanced person that I have known and the best clinical teacher I ever had. I value so much the Delores and Harry friendship.

Bonnie and Jon Hamovitch - 24 days ago

We are so sorry for your loss, and for the loss we also feel. What a life ! His kindness, inspirational spirit and generous manner will be greatly missed. From the early days when he taught us to water ski he and Sam were a match for their patience. When we cleared trails at Lake Patrick when Harry was with us we were reassured - we knew if would be both a fun and safe adventure . We boasted to our Toronto friends about his stone sculptures, and we always walked by your house to "show him off" when we had guests at our house. His was a life well lived, and has left us all a beautiful legacy.

Janine West - 27 days ago

Dear Mrs. Rosen and family It is with a heavy heart that I send this off with my condolences regarding the death of your husband, Dr. Harry Rosen. I attended the funeral on Sunday, and the dedications from your family were powerful and heartwarming. He was obviously a wonderful husband and a wonderful father. One thing really stuck with me: “just one more push”. Dr. Rosen and Sherry had a tremendous impact on me and working with both of them was a journey where I learned not only about them, but about myself. Our work together clarified not only who I was and who I could be, but clarified what the role of the library vis-a-vis art and the community. Throughout the project, there was always one more push, however it was not a physical push - it was an intellectual push. Dr. Rosen and Sherry continually challenged me with the big questions, pushing intellectual boundaries to reach an understanding that included life, relationships, aesthetics, libraries, and of course art. And look what we have at the end. A monument that represents all that we were together: Strong, dependent on each other, trusting and I hope, friends. As I mentioned in my speech on the day of the inauguration, and I am enclosing the text for you, Dr. Rosen I believe was all about relationships. It wasn’t just about donating a sculpture, it was the joy that came from the journey, working together to build something truly wonderful, truly lasting. Everyday I walk by “Reliance”, I am reminded of his strength, his compassion, his spirit, and I am so proud to have worked on this. It some ways it represents my legacy as well, one of my best achievements. I hope you can take comfort in these words. He was a very special man, and he will be sorely missed.

Dear Rosen family, Our deepest condolences go out to you in this time of loss. Dr. Harry Rosen was a valued prosthodontist at the Montreal General Hospital and a professor at McGill for more than 60 years. His legacy will live on through the patients he treated, the students he taught and the sculptures he created and donated to institutions across Montreal and Toronto. The McGill University Health Centre was the fortunate recipient of one of his works, Little Hercules. Installed in the early 2000s, he now stands tall at the new home of the Montreal Children’s Hospital at the Glen site, inspiring young and old alike.

Rena Sharon - 29 days ago

A great soul has departed our midst. Dr. Rosen's capacious heart, his sage and brilliant mind, and his intrinsically kind and generous nature instructed and inspired us to savour and engage life with gentle humour, compassionate action, and vibrant celebration. The legacy of his well-lived life is evidenced in so many ways - his exquisite marriage with his beloved Delores, the beautiful family they have created together, and the magnificent tributes from across North America and beyond. I share what so many have expressed: he epitomized the meaning of a true mentsch, a gentleman, and a profound teacher to all those who experienced his rich essence. While I only had the privilege of meeting Dr. Rosen a few times, the signature of his joyous smile, unconditional warmth, and innate wisdom is inedibly inscribed upon my memory with deep gratitude. To Delores and all of the Rosen clan, my heartfelt condolences for your incalculable loss. May his spirit and the love of your friends and community enfold you with strength and peace.

Dear Rosen family Carol and I wanted to express our sincerest sympathies for your great loss. Dr. Rosen was an inspiration and mentor to us as dental students, residents and then colleagues in recent years and he will be missed. While a student at McGill, I (Matt) was in fact recipient of the scholarship in his name. This is when I met Dr. Rosen for the first time and came to understand what a profound impact he had on our profession and dental community. What an honor for me and a day I will always remember. Our thoughts are with your family during this difficult time. Sincerely Carol and Matt

Dr William Klein - 30 days ago

Dear Rosen Family, Dr Harry Rosen possessed extraordinary qualities. We revered him as a teacher in the dental school. I remember one example of the high regard in which he was held. I was in 4th year, and one of my crown and bridge patients was deemed not a good teaching case. But, when I had her in the clinic for operative dentistry, Dr Rosen recommended that I bring her back to the crown and bridge session for a particular splint. When I brought her again to the crown and bridge clinic, the demonstrators reminded me that they had told me she wasn't a good teaching case. "But Dr Rosen told me to bring her in and do such-and-such for her, " I told them. Their reply: "If Dr Rosen said that, then you can go ahead and treat her." A man always smiling, always cordial, always willing to impart knowledge. I have been trying in the last 51+ years to live up to the high standard he set for us. I will cherish his memory always. And I hope that all these messages of comfort and support help to ease the pain of his passing. Bill Klein London, ON

Dear Dolores and Family, I am so sorry to learn of Dr. Harry’ passing. In recent years I feel very fortunate to have crossed paths with him on numerous occasions. Usually I would see him striding down the street, upright and beaming, his demeanor and attitude belying his surgeries and his illness. I always left our encounters feeling enriched to have crossed paths. A great practitioner, a brilliant artist, but above all else a mensch among us all. May God grant him the eternal peace he so deserves, and may you all be spared further sorrow. Mark Freedman

Michael Davis (Barbados) - about 1 month ago

More than 2 decades ago, I was most fortunate to land at the door of Dr. Harry Rosen & Dr. Souzi Mahon and together over many, many years, they undid the poor dentistry I had suffered with complex restorative work. With modesty, warmth, kindness, and brilliance, Dr. Rosen routinely undertook challenges impossible for others and always attained success, professionally and in all aspects of life. He was the ultimate professional, sharing himself with his adoring patients, and living life to the fullest with absolutely no regrets. It was a privilege and an honour to know Dr. Rosen who will be missed and appreciated forever by countless many of us. I extend my deepest condolences to the entire Rosen family. May his cherished memory and legacy be a blessing and give strength to his loving family.

Peter and Miriam Safran - about 1 month ago

Dearest Dolores and family, The dentist's dentist, a true teacher to whom generations are grateful. I remember at graduation asking my parents to come and meet the greatest of them all, critical but kind, telling us how but allowing the freedom to fly on our own. Dr. Harry Rosen was so in tune with us all, teaching by example. The best lectures were not showing what he could do ,but how to solve the problem for the patient when things didn't work out. In the early 80's Harry was our first Israel Bond honouree , over 400 dentists came to honour him, but I will never forget his daughters poem on bonds, family bonds.Dr. Rosen's advice to his students was do something special with your life, publish an article, teach , help. We have all been touched by his life, his accomplishments, an example for us all. RIP Dr. Harry Rosen and thank you.

Saul Levine - about 1 month ago

My deepest condolences to Harry’s entire family. May his memory help you through this most difficult time. How can one give a sincere tribute to a man whose kindness and gentle manner shone through his being as a teacher at McGill? Besides being a successful dental professional, Harry knew well how to handle the fragile egos of his students. I can truthfully say that Harry really knew how to teach! He never denigrated your meagre efforts in those learning years. He always offered alternative methods without bruising your ego. Although we practiced in the same city, our offices were very distant. The only times we ever met were at dental lectures. Five years on I was still addressing Harry as ‘sir’. Harry always smiled, offering a sincere handshake when we met. More than that, when I served as president of the Mount Royal Dental Society, he was the first to congratulate me. Later on, our dental society sponsored family picnics at a colleague’s riding stable. Harry didn’t participate in the picnic as his children were already adults, but often he was riding inside the riding ring. Wow did he impress with his elegant stature, confidently astride his steed. Then, many years later I was fortunate enough to employ Harry’s lab technician George. I not only heard stories of Harry’s expertise as a dentist and his kindness to his patients, but also his competence as a stone artist. In later years, George was moving the rocks and stones for Harry and loving it. I could go on, but I think you can see my understanding of Harry being a real renaissance man. A life well-lived for a giant of a man. Harry, “Ave atque vale”!! “Hail and farewell”!! Saul Levine (Toronto)

Dearest Cousins Dolores, Joy and Larry, Paula, Eric and all the Family: Our heartfelt thoughts of sympathy go out to you on Harry's passing. Although we knew of his recent illness, it is still a shock to know he has passed and lost his fight. Dr. Harry was revered in our family. We boasted about his achievements in dentistry---he was the Best! We loved him for his charm, his caring and his devotion to the family. He was the true Renaissance Man. Dolores and Harry were the perfect couple...a wonderful example of friendship, love and companionship (so rare). My husband Steve and I were fortunate to have both of you attend Steve's birthday dinner party at Il Cortile recently, and we shared a fun night. Who could predict he would be gone so fast. Previously, we enjoyed dinner and a late night tour that he gave us in Montreal, so proud of his sculptures at Jewish General and Little Hercules at the Children's Hospital. He said "these will be here long after me"---and so it is. His legacy is unsurpassed. We were truly blessed to have him in our family. I know that my late mother Lily (Mager) and Auntie Florence, who worshipped him, will be greeting him at heaven's gates and they will all laugh, sing and play the piano, and enjoy each other again as always. Dolores, stay strong...you lost your soul mate, just remember the good times. We will be in touch soon. With all our love. Cousins Bonny and Steve (Hallandale Beach & Miami, Florida)

To Delores and family, I was shocked and saddened this morning when I read the Gazette and saw Harry's name....... he was a true Mensch in every sense of the word. He was not shy to share with his students his life, his loves, his talents and his hobbies.....he inspired all of us to try hard, be creative and reach for the top........ and to know him throughout my dental student years until more than 50 years later was truely a blessing, and an honor.

Dear Dolores and family, my heart goes out to you. For those reading these memories, I’d like to share this special one. Up North, showing us his stone work (both how he amazingly made use of the boulders from the lake to landscape and build over the decades, and some of his sculptures), we came to his Woman sculpture (based on Venus on the half shell). Me: I like that she has a round tummy. Harry: Of course! She’s a WOMAN, not a girl! What a wonderful man. Much love to the family in this time of loss.

Robert and Denyse Langlais - about 1 month ago

Dr. Rosen is one of my Professors at McGill who I remember and cherish the most. He was a true gentleman and always treated us students with a high degree of patience. He had the highest expectations from us and made certain we overcame any and all difficulties with our studies in operative dentistry. When I myself became a dental educator I always tried to emulate DR. Rosen's approach to teaching. I would characterize his approach as "Patience with High Expectations" of everyone regardless of our various natural skills and learning abilities. Though his passing saddens me enormously. please accept my heartfelt condolences especially to his family and also to his many friends. Harry: we will miss you but we will not forget the wonderful lessons, skills and friendship you gave us. Robert Langlais (San Antonio Tx)

Dear Dolores and Family, I was deeply saddened to hear of Harry‘s passing. I have read what so many of my colleagues and friends have already written and they have said all that I feel and would wish to express to you and your family as well. Harry’s mentorship and influence was appreciated not only in Montreal but all over the world. For all of us who he touched, whether as a teacher, friend, husband or father he stood out as a solitary example of someone we all would wish to emulate. His influence was profound and I feel so fortunate that I was able to tell him this personally on many occasions over the years. The likes of Harry Rosen will never be forgotten. He was simply the best of the best. May you and your family be spared any further sorrows. Harvey Wiener ( Fort Lauderdale, Florida)

Little did I know the day Harry, Delores and their young daughter Joy walked down the road to our country house at Lake Patrick and ultimately bought the house next door to us, the impact Harry would have on my life…redirecting me from a planned career in architecture to one in dentistry and ultimately to Prosthodontics. The path that he set me upon, the challenges he placed before me as a friend, teacher and mentor were both compelling and motivating. Harry’s approach to dentistry and to life were truly inspirational and I will be forever grateful for the role he played in my life. I pray for comfort and Shalom for Delores and the entire Rosen family in this difficult time. Blessings, Perry

Marilyn Mitchell - about 1 month ago

Dear Dolores and Family. How very, very saddened I was to hear of Harry's illness only two days before his passing! Had I known earlier, I most certainly would have been in touch to come and see him and let you both know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Harry was always one of my favorite people! When I was only a child, I asked him to wait for me to grow up so that I could marry him! Well, obviously, that didn't happen, but other things did...... At 8 years old, Erev Yom Kippur, I smashed my teeth on the handlebars of my bicycle. In a panic, my mother called Harry who opened his office to wire my teeth in place . Subsequently, as a teenager, with his amazing talent, he constructed a bridge for my front teeth, which now, 50 years later, is still there. At every family wedding, I looked forward to the opportunity of dancing with him which was truly a joy! When Auntie Faigee came to Montreal, Harry took us to where he was working on his latest sculpture and we felt so honored and privileged to be shown his magnificent creation "up close and personal". Harry seemed to be the patriarch of the family and there was an unspoken understanding that we could come to him with any issues if necessary. In recent years, Hugh and I thoroughly enjoyed the evenings we spent out together with you and Harry. Our men seemed to have so much in common, one in dentistry, the other in medicine. Although we didn't have contact on a regular basis, just knowing that he "was there" was wonderful. We certainly will miss his laugh and warmth at future simchas. May the memories of the happy times help to get you through this difficult period. Love from Hugh & myself.

Dear Delores & Family We were so shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Harry. He surely can be regarded as one of the foremost dentists in Montreal and probably in Canada as well, He has been my foremost inspiration as to how I practiced dentistry and I so often have said that he taught me most everything I knew. His influence on me as a teacher along side of him was profound and I will always be grateful for having known him as my mentor , friend and colleague He will missed by so many. Our thoughts are with you.

Monte Bail - about 1 month ago

The biographical discussion of Harry, with his nice photo, was so eloquent, so true and to the point, but I read it not from a distance, but as being immersed in it. It so well and perfectly describes Harry. It is "right there", just like Harry always was, in everything he did, and with everyone he was with. I am deeply grateful that this biographical piece does such beautiful justice to him, and keeps alive the person that was Harry. I also must say that I agree with everything said by my brother Jeff, in his note; actually, I could not have expressed those reflections and sentiments any better, and I feel like I could have written an exactly similar note. I am privileged to say that I had an opportunity to basically live with the Rosen family for years, and I spent tons of time with Harry, skiing, folk dancing, horseback riding, swimming, sailing, water skiing, hiking and biking, and just hanging out. We spent many hours together, talking about the world, family, and things, in his car, on chair lifts, at the stable, driving to go skiing and horseback riding. I feel so lucky that I have had Harry in my life, for all of my life. He and Delores have been and are so much a part of my life, and I still have him in me. I will cherish that presence for as long as I live. I really loved and admired Harry, and I am going to sorely miss him. He was always a role model, mentor, family, and good friend to me, and my mom absolutely adored him. To all family members, and good friends of Harry, I reach out to you, so that we may support each other, to sustain each other, as we deal with this loss

Dear Dolores and family, We are so very sorry to hear of Harry’s passing, and even sorrier that we won’t be able to attend the funeral, as we are presently in Cambodia. The loss is great to you, the family, but so very great as well, to the dental community, the artistic community, and to all who knew him. He was a mentor to many, including Herb, and will be sorely missed. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity recently to have had dinner at your home, and to share the blessing of being in Harry’s company. He was many things, but above all, a true Mench. May you find comfort in your beautiful memories, and the love that is being shown to you now from everyone who knew him. Eileen & Herb

Dear Delores and Family, It is the end of an era for Montreal dentistry. Harry served as a mentor for my late husband Ezra Kleinman and myself. I remember meeting you both on a train to Toronto to an AO convention in 1964. We were both so in awe of you both and your beautiful and warm relationship. His warmth was so real even as we met at Chalet BBQ. He was a very special man. Harry attended the funeral of my husband last November. It meant so much to me. My deepest condolences to you ay this sad and difficult time. Ellen Kleinman

Dear Rosen Family, So sorry for your loss of this great man. I still vividly remember his dental school lectures from 35 years ago. He was probably my first inspiration to become a prosthodontist. And I admittedly recycled one of his great lectures in my teaching years in the University of Washington dental school. He was a brilliant dentist and certainly an influence on my life.

JEFF A BAIL - about 1 month ago

To The Rosen Family, My Most Dear and Special Canadian Cousins I am deeply saddened and somewhat shellshocked that Harry has passed away. He was my hero throughout my life as you know. From the day I was a little kid, I always understood the special relationship, through my mom's close extended family upbringing in Montreal with Harry and his family on St. Urbain. Our family will forever be connected deeply, spiritually, and with the greatest affection, respect and admiration.....Harry will live within us forever. Beyond being my hero, he was my mentor and he was committed to opening up the world to me that was impossible to experience from the gritty Brooklyn streets where I was born and raised once my mom married and left Montreal to live in America. Harry took it upon himself to teach me about the wonders of the world. He taught me how to snow ski, and how to water ski, he would take bike rides with me in Westmount and talk with me about life and how I could achieve my dreams by working hard and staying the course. He was always there for me, and with my parents and my brother, he is the one person in my life who I can say has made me who I am today and how my esprit de corps and positive energy force lives within me. He always loved to discuss his interests with me, not to impress me, but to instill within me the positive power of thinking and how anything is possible with hard work and commitment. But it was so hard not to be impressed, because frankly, Harry was the most talented, most creative and most eloquent person I have ever met. I was always impressed with his world-class Dentistry career, and I often bragged to people about how he travelled the world lecturing on prosthodontics, but also, I was always so intrigued about how people around the world would come to Montreal for their dental needs because we was the best in the world in prosthodontics. I remember days when I would visit Montreal and would come to his practice and sit next to him while he conducted intricate and incredible procedures, it was just a fascinating experience and I always left with pride and admiration, but, or course with deep love and respect for Harry. This is a sad time. Our entire family tree (uncles, cousins, aunts and my immediate family) always revered Harry, he was the shining light for our entire family.....always. I will miss Harry sooooo much for the rest of my life. I will never forget how Harry visited my Mom when my Dad was in poor health and how he provided my Mom with support and comfort. I remember once he just flew into Brooklyn to visit my Mom at her apartment and I was there, and he just came to be there, no more no less, just to show support. He was a brother to my mom, not a cousin, their relationship was special and that has always been and will always be special. I always considered his father, Edel as my uncle, I always called Edel Uncle Edel, that was because our close knit relationship was true family and kindred love that can never be replicated. We are so fortunate that Harry was able to attend the funeral of my dad and many years later the funeral of my mom. At both funerals we were honored to have Harry give a Eulogy, which I will never forget. Truly inspirational and uplifting, and spoken in a tone that was soft and heartfelt. Although my mom and dad were not alive to attend the marriage of our son Tyler to Betsy two years ago, it was comforting to have Harry be a part of the wedding, we loved experiencing the wedding with Harry and Delores because the spirit of my parents lived within them and they were looking down with good fortune upon all of us. And so, my wife Taryn and our two boys Tyler and Austin want to offer my deepest condolences to the Rosen family. I am confident that Harry will be in heaven with all of our deceased loved ones and no doubt the yiddush dancing will continue up there with lots of laughter and love. G-d bless you Harry, you are and will always be an incredible human being, and the world is a better place because of you, and we are all better people because of you. I love you Harry and will never forget everything you have done for me in my life. Jeff Bail and family
