I really wish I could've spent more time with my grandfather. I was so excited to see him again. When my mom told me what had happened, I felt like every bone in my body was gone. I wish he were still here so he could see what a great person my mother has become. I miss sitting on his lap and feeling his beard on my face when I hugged him. We were going to dissect frogs together, he said. Now that will never happen. I called him Papa with the Beard. I will always miss him. He was a great man. I will never forget when he took my little sister and I to a duke basketball game. We sat right behind the people who took score. I miss papa, and I know he is watching over are family, always.

Dear Allen, I will always remember you as a great teacher and a very caring person, who taught me so much about Alzheimer's Disease, Genetics and life in general. I was so fortunate to know you and work with you for the past 3-4 years. You will be missed. My deepest sympathies to Allen's family and friends at Zinfandel Pharma.

I remember working with and sparring with Allen at both GSK and Takeda. His insight and vision in the field of Alzheimer's research and his passion were unmatched. Our children shared a classroom for two years and I got to know him and Ann better for that time. I always enjoyed our conversations and his company and I and my family, wish all his family long life

Ann and family… Working for Allen was one of the best experiences of my life. His humor, intelligence, and integrity in both public and private I will always remember. I will also cherish the many adventures… like moving the wine collection to your new house, wine education lessons and tasting at staff meetings, the wonderful research team of scientists he assembled at Glaxo. His passion for finding a cure for neurological diseases and his expressed love of his family are two reasons he was admired by me and others. So sorry to hear of his passing. He was a great man in so many ways.

Dearest Allen, where does one start? We would not be where we are today without your mentoring and support over the years. That special look you gave when things were not right. The family visits to Perth and Peppi. The pilgrimage to MossWood. Your last visit when you talked about the love and pride for your girls. Annie, Stephanie and Maija our love to you. He has left a big hole. A character bigger than life who will always be remembered. Love Sandy and Steve

I first met Allen in the early 1970s when he was working with Stan Appel on myotonic dystrophy and I was working on Duchenne muscular dystrophy with Victor Dubowitz in London. It was the time of the membrane theory in DMD and that was the focus of his research on mytonic dystrophy. He published controversial data - a recurring theme! - and I saw that again in the Alzheimer's field. Allen came to several meetings here at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, the last in 2010. I wrote to him earlier this year to tell him I was retiring and he replied, still remembering a wonderful meal we had in Soho, London, in the early 80s. I don't think he would mind me reproducing some of it here - not because he says kind things about me but because it reflects his affectionate nature. (Not experienced by everyone - note the reference to "acrid discussions"! "We go back much longer than most. Remember Chien Chien Ku in London. It closed its doors this year too. All good things come to an end....Many fond memories of the conferences and your wonderful kind manner in diffusing some particularly acrid discussions....Yo'all come down sometime soon and bring your wonderful wife.

Allen, thank you for giving a cocky West Australian city bloke (and his shy country girl) a go, for 25 years to present day. Your generosity has made Durham our home for 13 years. So many fond memories of wonderfully warm Thanksgivings with your family and friends (again I apologize for missing one, and you never let me forget it!), sharing your Moss Wood wines, watching 4th of July fireworks, Duke Basketball games, picking up reuben’s in every city we visited together, telling me how and where to drive in every city we visited together. I am going to miss you mate. Your brilliant mind, passion for your work, family and friends, that ADR laugh and smile. Forever I will hear you, “Anthony, don't sweat on the small stuff, focus on the work”. We live on in your light. Our thoughts and love are with Ann, Maija, Stephanie, Joanna, Michelle and families.

It was with great sadness I read about Allen's passing away. I have always been gratetful for his giving me the opportunity to work with him as a neuromuscular MDA fellow and junior faculty at Duke.I learnt a lot from him about clinical neuromuscular disease and research. Some of the teaching was done on the tennis court where he was a tough opponent. Most of all he was very kind and generous to me and my family and made us feel welcome at Duke. He will always be missed.

Ann, and Family, It has been a long time since we first met at the Raquet Club just behind Duke Hospital. (Early 1980's) It was really fun when Allen taught the high Impact aerobics class there. The ladies like it and we guys enjoyed it as well. Allen was quite a man. Serious when he wanted to, but for the most part a lot of fun. His wit and sense of humor were well coordinated. He was special in many ways. We will miss him. With best wishes and positive thoughts, Joel & Riva Freelander

I was heartbroken to learn about Allen's death. Allen was a pioneer in Alzheimer's research, genetics, and the other fields he mastered. It was his laboratory's discovery of APOE4, the major genetic risk factor, that caused me to become an Alzheimer's researcher, and it changed my life. He has always been there for my colleagues and me as colleague and advisor, and he was a dear friend. Allen loved defying conventional wisdom and, more often than not, he turned out to be right. I loved hearing about his views, and his contrarian views most of all. His smile lit up the room whenever he spoke about Ann, Maija and Stephanie--even more than when he spoke about great wine or Duke basketball. My wife Lori, my colleagues and I will miss him terribly, and we'll continue to honor his legacy in our work. I wish to extend our deep condolences with Ann and everyone in the family, his Duke and Zinfandel colleagues, and friends.

Allen, I was so sorry to learn today that you've left us. I will always appreciate all you did for me in my career, and the down to earth wisdom you were always so generously willing to share. Science needs iconoclasts and visionaries to keep it honest and light the way forward. You did that. We will all miss you. And to Ann and the rest of your family, please know my thoughts and prayers are with you. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

Kathy Spitz posted on October 3, 2016
I had the great privilege to support Allen and his leadership team during his first 5 years at GlaxoWellcome/GlaxoSmithKline. These years were some of the most fascinating, challenging (in a good way) and fun years of my career. I grew both professionally and personally because of Allen. He was a "maverick leader", with a clear and compelling vision and the remarkable ability to think strategically and take the steps necessary to engage the resources to ensure that his vision would become reality. He knew and practiced the art of the "long view" more and better than many leaders I've worked with over the past 30 plus years. Laughing with Allen was constant, as he worked tirelessly for all of us. One of many fond memories I have was when Allen generously gave me his ticket to a Duke Men's basketball game that was, ironically, played on his birthday. He was travelling and could not attend and so I sat with his wife Ann and enjoyed an experience that many only dream of. Allen was generous that way. Allen had that rare combination of determination, brilliance and lightheartedness that helped us all maintain perspective. My heart aches for all of us who had the good fortune to know and be with this man. My heart breaks for Ann and Allen's family. My deepest and most sincere condolences,

I hope your good-times memories will last and the not-so-good ones be forgotten.

A true mensch.
 

David Searls posted on October 3, 2016
How tragic it is to see someone so much larger than life leave the scene. One's mind reacts in strange ways to terrible news, and I confess that one of my first thoughts was how sad it was that Allen will miss the upcoming Duke basketball season and the promise it holds. More importantly, of course, he'll miss the final conquest of Alzheimer's and all the promise that his life's work still holds. The world has one fewer Blue Devils fan, one fewer connoisseur of Cabernet Sauvignon, one fewer brilliant neurologist, pioneering researcher, generous mentor, and loving family man, but with his outsized personality the loss is so much greater than the sum of those many parts of Allen. He was a force of nature, and it was the experience of a lifetime to be able to follow in his slipstream for a bit.

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of Allen Roses. He and I have been close friends for many years: sharing our interests in neurological disorders with a genetic component. He had me as a Visiting Professor in his department at Duke University on several occasions, and he was invited by me to give an important lecture at the Royal Society of Medicine in London, and also at my College in Oxford. We most recently met in Perth, Australia, where we shared the mutual friendship of colleagues in the field. He will be sorely missed.

Allen Roses was a very special man, at all levels that I got to know him. He was kind, deep, witty and a visionary in every field that he operated in, yet always with his feet on the ground. I happened to be part of a neurology dinner crowd less than 3 weeks ago where Allen enjoyed himself very much, steered the conversation with his wit and wisdom. He was full of enthusiasm for what lies ahead, in terms of possible discoveries and therapeutic opportunities in clinical neurosciences. He silently exsuded that "seed" into those around him, even at a business dinner. A giant of neurology, neuroscience and neurogenetics has passed, and we will miss him. But we will also hold on to his enthusiasm and strong and vibrant sense of optimism. - As stated by others here on this forum, we will be commemorating Allen when we drink truly delightful red wine - cheers Allen !

I join Allen's many many friends in mourning his loss. He was a brilliant man whose whose scientific endeavors helped to unravel some of the mysteries of Alzheimer's disease and pointed the way to new treatments. As with many pioneers he had his critics but Allen had the courage to stand up to his challengers and the test of time has proven him to be right. Having had the privilege of being a friend and colleague I always enjoyed my interactions with Allen because of his graciousness and unfailing sense of humor. Those who knew him well also witnessed that underlying his smiles and frequent laughter was a dead serious sense of urgency to help those living with the crippling and tragic manifestations of Alzheimer's disease. As much as we all knew about his precarious health, his love of life made me feel that he might outlive us all. He was a true giant of medicine and I will miss him greatly. My sincere condolences to those that Allen has left behind, especially to Annie and his daughters whom he loved so dearly.

David Hosford posted on October 2, 2016
Allen was a fascinating and effective leader as a neurobiological visionary and researcher, neurologist, Division chief, manager, pharmaceutical division head, and CEO. And he was also my friend. The first time I met him was during my 1982 interview for a position in Duke's Neurology residency program. Allen sat across a very crowded desk from me at 8 AM that morning, and on the desk sat a human skull with an upside-down pipe in its mouth. I was a bit afraid to ask him why it sat there, and more importantly, why the pipe was mispositioned, but it did set an interesting tone to the meeting. The unusual decor and an hour of conversation convinced me to come to Duke, and our paths have continued to cross in unpredictable ways since then. He has always shared advice, opened doors, and provided great vision about what can be. Regarding the latter, it would be an understatement to say that Allen has had a great impact on many areas of neuroscience, and most certainly on the field of Alzheimer's disease. There, Allen's reputation and the research findings of the teams he led are majestic and widely known. These findings have spurred countless basic science, clinical, and biopharmaceutical experiments in neuroscience that may lead to new treatments for conditions that lack them. Now switching topics, and as is well-known to his wide network, Allen was an amazing collector and expert in wines. And I guess he drank an occasional glass as well. And so, along with the many whom Allen Roses inspired to be better neurologists, researchers, managers and people, I will raise each new glass of nice red wine with a toast to my friend. And I have a suspicion that he may already be teaching those whom he meets in the next life a thing or two about viniculture. Cheers to Allen D. Roses!
