  3. We extend our deepest condolences to Mike’s family, friends and colleagues. Umpiring colleague from Cricket Victoria.

  4. Our deepest sympathies to all of Mike’s family and friends at this difficult time. Great memories of watching our Dees at the G. Helen & Daren xx

  5. Rosey, what a privilege it has been to be a small part of your life in the last couple of years!! As ‘Roomies’ in Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Jo’burg on that fateful ‘sandpaper’ tour of South Africa, it was a pleasure to be able to thrash out our frustrations and fury over the demise of our beloved sport with a few frosties…and a few more!?! Thankfully, the produce of the local vineyards helped lessen the disappointment of the on-field antics…never did a drop of red go to waste…at any opportunity!! Meeting Maree ‘virtually’ during your evening and morning video calls was a treat, as was seeing the furry one’s eagerly awaiting your return!?! (so glad you eventually cleaned out your suitcase and found the SA zip-up stubby holder I managed to smuggle aboard!!) The GASH European interlude interrupted our planned meet up in the UK last year…I now understand far better the importance of a Guinness or two in multiple countries!?! Seeing you @ The Junction Oval ‘Kiwi’ Dinner after Xmas, our first ACS Committee Meeting, fleetingly @ a Big Bash match @ The ‘G’, and spending time with you @ both MBC (after V8 practice day) & Rushworth CC where you so valiantly stood umpiring your final match, are all fondly remembered…especially the many laughs we shared post-match before you hit the road for your next consultation. Clearly you’ve meant so much to many people, none more so than your cherished off-spring and partners with whom we convey our sincerest condolences. We will always cherish being known as your mates, as do so many others who have been blessed to share that title!! Keep your eye on the Red and the Blue, Sport!! Drew and Pam XX

  6. A beautiful service. Sorry we could not be there.

    Maree, Nicole, Melissa, Kim, Stephanie and Courtney all our love and thoughts are with you and the rest of the Rose family.

    Good bye Mike. Rest in peace.

  7. Heartfelt condolences to the family. Wonderful tribute to your Dad, Nicole. The Gash boys in Hobart will miss “Melbourne Mike a lot, but have plenty to reminisce over our weekly sharing of a guinness.

  8. Mick as I’ve always known you, you have always been smiling.Just like the last time that we shared a red wine, I will share one with you now. Everyone who has ever met you has always fallen in love with you. Your humour & good times will be remembered fondly.Rest in Peace. xxx

  9. I first met Mick in the early 1980’s probably at the Oxford Hotel through Demon supporters, Mark Burchett, Rick Burchett, Shane Bourke or Steve Duffield. We always got on well both sharing a love of music and football/cricket. We saw quite a lot of each other during this period but not so much in later years although we would catch up at the Boxing Day Test or at Demons v Dogs games, particularly after my MCC membership finally came through. Mick was always good company and I can honestly say I have never heard a bad word spoken about him. A life well lived. Cheers mate. Martin Coupe

  10. Have some wonderful memories of times spent at gounds with you Mike both in Melbourne and interstate watching our beloved Dees. My condolences to all the family.

  11. Heartfelt condolences to the family from Greg, one of the Gash boys in Hobart. We will remember Melbourne Mike with a lot of fondness.

  12. What a beautiful tribute to Uncle Mick. Thanks so much for giving us the chance to participate. Looking forward to celebrating his life together in the near future ❤️❤️

  13. A lovely tribute to a wonderful man.
    I didn’t know him as well as l would have liked, but I know that for the last 12 years he made my dear friend Maree happy, and for that I thank him. He was generous and caring, and his love for cats, footy and a Guinness was most apparent. May all those near and dear to him find comfort and support in each other. Vale Mike Rose…God speed.

  14. A beautiful service and a wonderful tribute for Mike ….. May you go peacefully and pain free on your last journey My love and thoughts to Nicole , Maree and all those whose life you touched .
