Craciun Funeral Home


Dumitru Rotarescu

October 18, 1957September 4, 2021

Dumitru Rotarescu, age 63. Dearly beloved husband for 41 years of Eugenia. Loving father of Cristina (Ioan) Rotarescu - Draghici and Nicoleta Rotarescu (Anastasios). Dearest grandfather of Anabel, Carmen, Alexandros, Cristian, Maria and Joshua. Beloved son of Ion (deceased) and Maria Rotarescu. Dear brother of Maria Ivan. Dearest cousin, uncle and friend of many. Many people say a good father is judged by how hard he worked , by what house did he have, how much wealth he left his children. All these my father did do and accomplished. But most importantly, a good father is judged, by how empty he makes us all feel now that he is not around. A fost un tata tandru, blindu si rabdator. Un om ce m-a primit cu un zimbet pe fata in casa lui si caruia ii voi lipsi raspunsul la prima mea intrebare pe cind il vedeam: “ce faci tati”, “bine fata lui tati”. Imi va fi dor de a auzi “fata lui tati” si vedea zimbetul senin de pe fata lui. A fost un sot ce nu lasa sa plece sotia la servici fara so o imbratiseze si sa i spuna ca o iubeste. Un sot ce a aratat sotiei cit este de important sa se bucure de lucrurile simple ale vietii. Intr-un final, un om ce mi-as fi dorit ca toti prietenii si familia lui din Romania sa aiva sansa sa cunoasca, omul pur pe care noi aici l-am cunoscut ca tata, sot, bunic si socru.

We remember the day we met you 23 years ago at the Cleveland airport, ready to start a new life with your family. Since then we watched you grow, your family grow, your hard work and dedication to succeed in a new country and that is exactly what you did. Life is measured by what you achieve and what memories you leave behind and you will never be forgotten. Memory Eternal.

Violet, Frank and Uncle

You were my son's dear father-in-law who treated him with love and respect. We first met in Greece when you came to visit your dear daughter in her home abroad. You left your mark then with your tranquil and easy going disposition. My husband Vaggelis was impressed by your nobility and your sincere effort to communicate with us. Not many words were needed because our souls connected. We will always remember your radiating smile and never ending kindness. May you rest in peace. Καλό ταξίδι στις γειτονιές των αγγέλων. Amalia & Vaggelis (parents of Anastasios)

You were a kind, generous and loving man. You treated me with so much respect and I will never forget that. Anytime we met you had a smile in your face. We spoke with each other without the need for too many words. The last time I saw you, you hugged me. I will carry that hug with me forever...
Καλό ταξίδι Παππού Δημήτρη. Drum bun.
