Richard Rose passed away on July 4 from complications of COVID-19, just a few days after he tested positive for the coronavirus. Now posts are going viral online that show him saying he didn’t believe in wearing masks back in April. Heavy has confirmed that those posts are indeed authentic. In mid-June, he posted about attending a crowded outdoor public pool, and later said that he thought he may have caught coronavirus there. Many people who knew and loved Rose have posted tributes to him, including a paranormal group where he was well known, and funds are being collected for his funeral costs.

Rose Posted About Not Wearing Masks in April & About Visiting a Packed Pool in June Here’s the post that has gone viral.

Facebook

Unfortunately, the posts are true. Heavy was able to verify them. In late April, Rose did indeed post that he was not buying a mask. He didn’t indicate in later posts whether or not he had changed his mind about masks.

Heavy was able to verify this post, which was shared on April 28.

Then on June 13, checked into the Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island in Ohio, posting “Round 2” and then sharing how crowded it was there.

Facebook

On June 13, he posted a photo of a crowded pool full of people. Rose wrote: “It’s not that packed lol.”

Facebook

Rose later wrote on Facebook that he thought he caught COVID-19 when he was at the Bay attending the event above.

Another Facebook post shows he visited the S&M Bar on June 15, before he started feeling sick and was later diagnosed in late June.

In July, He Shared that He Was Sick with Coronavirus & Having Trouble Breathing Rose became ill with coronavirus in late June. On July 1 he wrote: “I’ve been very sick the past few days. Symptoms of Covid-19. This morning I finally got swabbed. I should know soon what the results are. I just want to feel good again!”

Facebook

In response to one person’s question, Rose wrote that he thought he caught COVID-19 when he went to the Bay the week before.

Facebook

He said he had gone a few weeks before and then wrote, “I seriously think that’s where I contracted if I test positive.”

Then later on July 1, he confirmed that he tested positive. He wrote: “Well. I’m officially under quarantine for the next 14 days. I just tested positive for COVID-19. Sucks because I had just started a new job!”

Facebook

When someone replied to that post and asked if he knew how he got it, he simply wrote back, “nope.” Another person wrote that they hoped a person he had been with at the Bay didn’t have it too.

One person wrote to him and said that they felt terrible about downplaying the virus now that someone they knew was sick from it.

Facebook

Rose wrote that he felt “wore out” and “I can barely breathe now” when someone asked him how he was feeling. He later wrote that he had a new job but because of the quarantine, he wouldn’t be able to go back to work until July 21.

Then on July 2, the next day, he posted about his symptoms getting worse in a heartbreaking message. “This covid sh** sucks! I’m so out of breath just sitting here,” he wrote.

Facebook

He answered a few additional questions about how he was feeling. He said that he was not given hydroxychloroquine and that he was only given an inhaler for treatment. The laughing reactions in the screenshots are from people who trolled his page later after his posts went viral.

Facebook

In another heartbreaking update, he shared that he hadn’t been able to sleep for two days.

Facebook

According to his obituary, Richard Rose III passed away on July 4. He was born on July 25, 1982.

On July 3, he posted a meme that his friends said really demonstrated his personality and sense of humor.

Facebook

One friend wrote about the meme above: “I didn’t think that this would make me laugh one day and the next day I’m filled with grief. Rest in heaven, you were one of the good guys.”

Another person replied: “Legit first thing i saw when i opened my Facebook startled me just a little. Rip rick im gonna miss your witty posts and the stories of what put u in Facebook jail this time.”

Another friend wrote in response to the meme:

This just popped up on my feed, one day old. It is horrible that this damn disease took a person so full of life but, God Bless him, he decided to go out on a joke. One that makes us sad and miss him, but also one that makes us laugh because it’s so damn fitting. Well done, sir. Well done indeed. You got us all one more time.”

Friends are posting tributes and talking about how much they miss him. One friend wrote: “He drove me and my daughter to and from Canada in Feb/March to meet up with friends. I just can believe that I’ll never hear him laugh in person again or have him scare the crap out of me again either. He will be missed.”

Another friend shared that Rose was only in his 30s and healthy.

Nick Conley wrote in a public post: “This was my friend Richard Rose. Rick was diagnosed with COVID-19 on July 1. Rick lost his life 3 days later on July 4th. Rick was healthy as far as we know and was only in his 30’s. Rick was like a lot of my friends, and didn’t feel the need to wear a mask because he was young and healthy. Please know that this virus is real. Just because you don’t personally know someone effected yet doesn’t mean it’s not real.”

Facebook

Another friend wrote that Rose was a combat veteran that they loved and will miss. His obituary shared that he was in the Army for nine years and served two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Aside from me though.. Who was mocking him in the tweets you posted? 

Seems like a good dude. It is terribly sad what's going on in this country in response to a fucking pandemic...

What's the OG always like to say? Play stupid games, win stupid prizes? I feel bad for the guy, but that's a risk you take when you don't take precautions.

Seems pretty damn political to me... yeah? In all reality -- this guy exposed himself to a virus, while mocking it, because of the political situation in this country.

Of course not. This place is the epicenter of c l a s s and compassion on the internet.

You'd hope it would at least be a wake-up call for some people, instead of them just getting even more defensive.

It won't... They've been properly programmed. 


Pull the string on their back and they have ready-made talking points to spew: 


"We're testing more!"


"It's just another seasonal flu!"


"It's pandemic porn from the MAINSTREAM MEEEEEEEEEEEDIA!"


"Democrats are blowing it up because of the election!"


And if you're an upgraded, faux-reasonable model you have a few extra quotes: 


"It only impacts the elderly!"


"Nothing we can do but build herd immunity!"

Masks don't protect the wearer. They protect others from a sick person. 
 

His refusal to wear a mask isnt a factor in his death.

I have a mid 20's latina girl I'm loosely friends with that I'm friends with on FB.

She's certifiably insane, heavily tatted up with HORRIBLE tattoos, but has a huge rack and a thick ass.

She posted the stills of a few of his posts and his obit a few hours ago.

 

I haven't commented, but honestly I could lose her as an FB friend, I just don't engage in any convos on my personal FB these days if it's remotely political. That's what the OG is for.

 

Honestly, it's all fun and games to me on the internet, and rarely does something cross the line for me.

But I'm not on board with mocking someone who had an untimely death. If you're cool with this, don't ever act outraged by Trump's antics because this is at least on par if not worse than mocking a disabled person among many others.

All the more reason not to go around pretending it doesn't do any good; the sick people will beleive you.

So he probably got a bunch of other people sick and potentially killed innocent Americans.

The OG: where an actress who "dresses like a slut" or takes roles of a more risque nature couldn't be raped, but a guy risking his life and those of others is beyond reproach! I don't feel the guy should be mocked but should be viewed as a cautionary tale.

I agree with this. The virus is real and how it affects me or the next person could be completely opposite ends of the spectrum.

We don't know the infection process in this specific case, but in general it's certainly a factor.


Promote anti-mask message -> less people wear mask -> higher risk you get infected. How can that be so hard to grasp?
