Dear Mrs. Romaine and family,
All of the Marshalls are sending their deepest sympathy upon the passing of your dear husband,
dad, father-in-law, and grandpa. Mr. Romaine was like a guiding light! He always took a personalized interest
in every one's life. A conversation with him left you feeling positively upbeat, confident, laughing and feeling like
family. What a special quality he had to impart his enthusiasm for life to whom ever he connected with!! He is now
being guided by the Lord, angels, and the many relatives and friends who were there to greet him in his new home.
I know our parents, John and Marian were there for him and they are all chatting into the wee hours!! You are all
part of a beautiful loving family....blessed with terrific sons (and their wives) and many grandchildren who will carry
on the family name. I, Joanne, personally felt that love when I reconnected with you a few years back and it was a
special feeling. I felt like no time at all had passed. Thank you for that love! We are sending you all our love at this
difficult time along with many hugs. God bless you all. Love, The Marshalls

Today, Tuesday, August 14, 2018, Mr. Romaine will be laid to rest in Jacksonville National Cemetery. On behalf of the entire Callahan Family and especially my late Parents (Aileen and John Callahan), we send our sincerest condolences to Mrs. Romaine, their four sons JR, Gregg, Tim and Gary (and their great wives) and the entire Romaine family on the passing of Mr. Romaine. Mr. Romaine was a such a bright light and a big part of growing up and living in Cornwall (the greatest hometown ever). He'll never be forgotten (his wit, his laughter and his example) and we know Mr. R. is up there smiling down on and interceding for all of us. May God rest his soul forever in the loving arms of our Risen Savior. Amen.

Remembering many happy days at the baseball fields watching the boys play and Friday nights before the dragons football games at the Canterbury Inn
My heartfelt sympathy Terry and to the entire family.
I am sure Tony and John are in heaven having some great discussions. May they both rest in peace.

Mr. Romaine, a big personality with an infectious laugh. Like my Dad, a John Wayne type from a different time. Often after I graduated college, Mr R. would ask me, “Joey are you making $100k yet? If not insurance is the place to do it! Come see me when you’re ready!” Then a hearty laugh and probably a baseball story. I never did get into insurance but always appreciated his passion for what he did. As well his love of Cornwall and community.
Condolences to The Romaine family. Remember the good times as you celebrate his life. Rest In Peace, Mr. R.
