Brad Lehi Rose

November 1, 1960 — April 14, 2021

Brad L. Rose, 60 years of age, was born November 1, 1960 in Malad, Idaho. He passed away April 14, 2021 in his mother’s arms in Washington, Utah.

Brad was a longtime resident of Hyde Park and Smithfield, Utah.
Brad was diagnosed with Mongolism at the age of 6 months. His mother was told because he was a Mongoloid, he would just be a “vegetable”. She was advised to place him in an institution and get on with her life. This was completely unacceptable to Louise. She knew Brad was a perfect spirit and had a great purpose on this earth to be loved, taught and accepted. Brad’s family was also aware of this and embraced the challenge.
In the early 1970’s the label “Mongoloid” began to be replaced by Down Syndrome to honor Dr. John L. Down. In 1866 Dr. Down described the condition. He did extensive research on it, but could not learn what caused it. The genetic reason for Down Syndrome was discovered in 1959 by French Geneticist Dr. Jerome Lejeune.

Brad began his education when he was 4 years old. Education and a meaningful life were thought to be impossible because he was a Mongoloid, born with Down Syndrome. Family members, excellent teachers, friends, neighbors and many other caring advocates were of great help to him. He attended several schools, including Edith Bowen at Utah State University, and became a “poster child” for new ways of educating and living with people who have special needs. He was able to accomplish a lot and thrive, and enjoy life despite his early label as a vegetable. He worked at The Hub in Food Services at Utah State University for 14 years, and to financially contribute to over 100 Missionaries. He loved his Primary, Sunday School, Seminary and Institute classes and his teachers. He participated in Sacrament Meetings with his Seminary teacher, Mr Halvorsen. He learned to read on a 3-4 grade level, tell time and do simple math. Brad graduated from Seminary. He loved to bless sacrament and help in Boy Scouts. He was very organized and meticulously clean. He was so proud to be able to do his own Temple Endowment with the help of a lot of wonderful people.

Brad is survived by his mother, Louise R. Seamons, brothers Kevin and Mike (Shelley), many precious aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, and friends. Members of the Seamons family are also very loved, gratefully acknowledged and sincerely thanked.

He was preceded in death by his step father, Clynn A. Seamons (1930-2008) who loved and cared for Brad as his own, brothers Eric L. Rose (1965-2006) and Richard Lynn Rose (1968), many grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and other family members.

Brad’s mother, Louise, and his family are deeply appreciative to each family member, teacher, friend and neighbor and everyone who added so much to Brad’s life.

Especially at this beautiful time, we thank Our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, for Brad’s precious life. We are grateful for their many blessings, their complete love and their Perfect Plan of Life.

Brad, now your sojourn on earth is completed,
So much in this world you have learned.
So, with your hand in God’s hand, return to Heaven
And receive the glory you have earned.
