Arnold M. Rosenberg

Arnold (Arnie) Mitchell (Mitchie) Rosenberg, 77, a New Fairfield resident for the past 29 ½ years, passed away on Friday, September 13, 2019 of cardiac arrest.
Arnie was born in Portchester, NY, a twin son to the late Mae and William Rosenberg.
He leaves behind his wife and soulmate Carol (nee Kowatch) Rosenberg of 46 ½ years of New Fairfield, a son Bill Rosenberg of Teaneck, NJ and daughter Lisa Rosenberg of New Milford, CT whom he was very proud of and loved dearly. Both Bill and Lisa put their personal lives on “hold” to return from South Lake Tahoe, CA and Wilmington, NC, respectively, to be closer to their parents and to help support Arnie in his struggles with Heart Disease and Parkinson’s.
Additionally, Arnie is survived by his twin brother, Edward Rosenberg and his wife Marilyn and their children, Adam, Steven and Alyssa, and Lauren and Craig and children. He is also survived by his sister in law, Norma Rosenberg and her children, Billy and Gina and their children.
Mr. Rosenberg attended New York schools and graduated from City College of New York majoring in Engineering. Shortly after graduation, he was hired by IBM where he completed 30 years of service filling multiple programming and data base administrative positions.
He served with the U.S. Army National Guard, and was an active member of the New Fairfield Jaycees where he worked on projects of service such as the “Special Olympics”.
Over the years, Arnie has not only been the head of his loving family but a special friend to so many who have expressed their love and sadness over this sudden loss. A testament to how he affected so many with his Passover Services which everyone just loved – at the 2019 Seder there was three generations of individuals who participated in Arnie’s special service/celebration.
Arnie’s sense of humor was delightful; he could always find the funny in a situation and make you laugh as long as you let him get to the punch line!! Aside from his humor, he was the warmest, most generous person – he’d give you anything he had to make your life better. He will be truly missed.
He was a member of the United Jewish Center of Danbury and a member of the choir.
Funeral services will take place on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at 1 p.m. in the United Jewish Center, 141 Deer Hill Ave., Danbury with Rabbi Stefan Tiwy and Cantor Penny Kessler officiating. Burial will follow in the United Jewish Center Cemetery, 124 Gray’s Bridge Road, Brookfield, CT. The family will receive friends at the United Jewish Center on Tuesday commencing at 12 noon.
