It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Richard Charles Roseberry, affectionately known as “Mcloud,” on February 23, 2024, at the age of 79. Born on July 6, 1944, in Laurel, Mississippi to Charles Lindsey Jr and Mary Roseberry, and later making a life in Wilmington, California, Richard led a life marked by dedication and service.

After graduating from Banning High School, Richard pursued and received an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice, which paved the way for his commendable service in the United States Air Force stationed in Grand Forks, North Dakota. His commitment to public safety and community service continued as he embarked on a distinguished career in law enforcement. Richard served the communities of Compton, California, Oslo, Minnesota, and Wadena, Minnesota with honor and distinction. During his tenure, he was recognized for his disciplined approach and leadership, culminating in his appointment as Chief of Police in Oslo, MN. After two decades of service as a police officer, Richard transitioned into a successful career as a private detective, where he continued to apply his keen sense of justice and investigative skills.

Richard was not only a well-respected leader in his professional life but also a devoted father to his three children: Tammy, Todd, and Mike.  He is survived by his sister Kimberly(Dave) Short;  children Tammy(Ron) Nelson, Todd Roseberry and Mike(Barb) Roseberry; grandchildren, KayCee, David, Allie and Lily; great grandchildren, OakLee and Bristol, and nephew Matthew.  Richard was predeceased by his beloved wife, Nannette Roseberry in 2005.  His love for his family was paralleled only by his passion for dancing and music that carried a good beat, hobbies that brought joy not only to him but to everyone around him.

Richard’s legacy is one of courage, love, and an unwavering commitment to the well-being of others. While he may no longer be with us in body, his spirit and the impact of his work will continue to resonate within the communities he served and the lives he touched.

A celebration of Richard’s life will be held March 23rd 11:00 am at the Gilbert Memorial Park in Gilbert AZ, where memories will be shared, and the music he loved will play one more time, in honor of a remarkable life lived to the fullest.

Farewell, Mcloud. Your beat goes on in the hearts of those who loved you.  “Love Ya, Miss Ya, Need Ya.”
