Monte Z. Rosenberg

November 30, 1928 - February 14, 2018

Monte Z. Rosenberg died Wednesday February 14, 2018 at home after a long illness at the age of 89.
Monte met the love of his life, Carole, and they were happily married in 1954 for 63 years. He was a long time resident of Norfolk and Virginia Beach.
He was predeceased by his parents, Bess and Alan Rosenberg, his brother Ira Rosenberg and his lifelong friend Joe Goodstein.
He is survived by his loving wife Carole, his devoted children Jo (Shari), Paul (Stefan), Lesley and his adored and adoring grandchildren Elizabeth and Jacob and several nieces, nephews, sisters-in-law and many friends who are like family.
Monte graduated pharmacy school in 1957 and owned the first discount pharmacy, King’s Pharmacy, in the area. Throughout his career he was known for his integrity and professionalism. He trained many new pharmacy graduates to do the job “properly” who went on to manage their own pharmacies.
Monte was a snazzy dresser and his grandchildren knew him for his unusual taste in socks. He was known for his love of children, basketball, fast cars, golf and sailboats. For years he went to the NCAA tournament with multi-generational family members. Monte looked forward to his Wednesday lunches with the “Romeos.”
Funeral services will be held on Sunday, February 18th at 12:00 noon at Altmeyer Funeral Home at 5792 Greenwich Road, Virginia Beach, followed by a graveside service at Forrest Lawn Cemetery on Granby Street in Norfolk.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
