Charles Milton Rosenberg passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 17, surrounded by his family and loved ones. He was 85 and survived by his wife of 62 years, Ann Bernice (Bunny), children: I.J. (Beth Ann) Rosenberg and Sammy (Katie) Rosenberg; grandchildren: Lindsey and Steven Lubel, Ashley and Alex Carey, Chase Rosenberg and Max Rosenberg; great grandchild: Charlotte Carey. Charles is also survived by his brothers Jack (Diane) Rosenberg, Morris (Gail) Rosenberg and brother-in-law Edwin (Louise) Rothberg. Charles was preceded in death by his parents, Ben and Florence Rosenberg and his in-laws, Lillian and Irving Rothberg.

Charles was born and raised in Atlanta and a graduate of Grady High School where he met his wife, Bunny. He then attended Penn University before coming back to Atlanta to finish his undergraduate degree at Emory University. Charles then went to the University of Maryland Dental School where he earned a Doctorate Degree in Dentistry before specializing in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Charles spent two years in the U.S. Navy as an officer in Newport, RI., before he completed an internship in Birmingham and a residency in Louisville. Along with Dr. Perry Brickman and Dr. Ed Green, Charles opened the first incorporated oral surgery practice in Atlanta. Eventually joined by Dr. Harvey Silverman, Georgia Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery remained in practice for 42 years.

Over the years, Charles took early leadership roles in Israel Bonds as well as the Greater Jewish Federation of Atlanta. He was a staunch supporter of Israel and visited the country 21 times.

An avid golfer, Charles was also a big Atlanta sports fan and at one time had season tickets to the Atlanta Falcons, Hawks and Flames and attended the 1974 Atlanta Braves game with his mother and two sons when Henry Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s major league home run record.

Charles was a wonderful son, husband, father, Zayde and great grandfather and always put family first. He was also able to spend quality time with all four of his grandchildren who in these last years visited him regularly at his home in Duluth. It was only beshert that great granddaughter, Charlotte, and Charles were both lovingly referred to as “Charlie” and the two were quick to form a strong bond.

Charles and Bunny would have celebrated their 63rd anniversary on August 20 and he was very dedicated to the love of his life. Bunny accompanied him on many of his trips to Israel. His spirt and dedication to his family, community and Israel will be missed.
