Rites Held For Albert Rozario, 58
Funeral services were held this morning for Albert Rozario, 58, who died at his place of business, Rozarioís Liquor Store in San Rafael, Saturday afternoon.
Rozario was found about 2:15 p.m. by a friend, Thomas Nicholas Temple of 316 C Street, San Rafael, when Temple went into the store at 810 B Street to make a purchase. The stricken man was unconscious on the floor, gasping for breath.
Thinking there had been a holdup, Temple called police.
By the time help arrived, Rozario had died. He was taken directly to Keatonís Mortuary. Deputy Coroner William C. Bradley said death was caused by a heart condition from which Rozario had suffered since 1952.
Rozario, who had operated the liquor store for the past two years, and his wife, Delpha, resided at 4 Blossom Drive in San Rafael. He had lived in San Rafael six years and was married 31 years.
He was the owner-operator of Rozarioís Resort in El Verano, Sonoma County, for 13 years before moving to Marin. Previously he had been in business in San Francisco.
Rozario, 58, was born in Merced. He was an outdoor sports enthusiast and hunted and fished frequently. He was a member of the Petaluma Elks Lodge and the Eagles Lodge in Sonoma.
He leaves, besides his wife, a daughter, Marie Lois Mosher of Los Gatos; his mother, Mrs. Mary Sawdon of San Francisco; two brothers, William Rozario of Oakland and Charles Rozario of Merced, and two grandchildren.
Interment was private.
A Death Notice in the same paper gives the names of the grandchildren: Stephen R. and Terry Mosher.
The CA Death Index gives his birth date, Sept. 1, 1904
