    Peter Frederick Rosen, 75, of Atlanta, GA passed away peacefully at home on July 11, 2022
    after a valiant 2 year battle with advanced lung cancer. Peter was the youngest son born to
    Vera and Eli Rosen in Brooklyn, NY and was raised in Valley Stream, NY. He was elected class
    VP at Valley Stream South High School where he excelled in basketball, football and baseball.
    He graduated from Cornell University Industrial and Labor Relations School and went on to
    receive his JD from St. John’s University School of Law.

    After passing the New York Bar and beginning his law career at the Screen Actors Guild, he
    and his wife Phyllis (Bernstein), to whom he was introduced through a friend while in college
    and married upon graduation, decided to leave the hot and crowded subway lifestyle of New
    York City and take a chance on Atlanta, GA. They arrived in Atlanta in 1973 and after passing
    the Georgia Bar, Peter began working at the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity

    Despite the hard work to earn his degree and credentials, Peter decided to make a career shift
    and kicked off what would become a 46-year career in Human Resources where he would
    advise, train, and touch many lives. His HR career began at the Coca-Cola Company where he
    spent 12 years as the HR Manager for Europe and Africa. His career continued with
    SmithKline Beecham Clinical Laboratories, Norrell Corporation, Alexander and Alexander,
    Capital One Financial Services and TeamStaff. He then went on to establish his own strategic
    HR consulting firm, Human Resource Strategies and Solutions (HRSAS), where he spent the
    last 22 years.

    Although he impacted many lives through his work, it was his ability to connect and relate to
    people that brought so much joy to every aspect of his life and the lives of others. One of the
    most notable ways was through sports as Peter was an exceptional all-around athlete. He
    had a passion for basketball that carried well beyond his school years and he became an avid
    runner who participated in many Peachtree Road Races since the 1970’s. Peter then took up
    bowling and found his true passion, golf, later in life - even playing a full 18 holes months
    before his passing. A loyal friend, yet a competitor at the same time, Peter made some of his
    deepest connections through sports.

    Those who knew him well will remember Peter for his sharp style of dress, his keen attention to
    the upkeep of his yard and his love of the latest technology. Even those he briefly encountered
    could immediately sense his deep kindness, empathy and thoughtfulness. Everyone he
    touched will remember him as a lover of people and a connector. He was a mentor and
    advisor to many over the years. Peter was also a fierce supporter of his daughters and
    absolutely loved his family. He was truly one of a kind.

    Peter is survived by Phyllis, his wife of 53 years, daughters Sarah Shah (Tapan) and Elissa
    Rosen, and granddaughters Norah and Sidney. A doting “girl dad” he took such pride in all his
    girls. He is also survived by his brother Jon Rosen (Patricia), niece Hope Rosen, great nephew
    Zachary, nephew Jason Rosen, brother-in-law Stuart Bernstein (Emma Fessler), niece Anna
    Claire Bernstein, nephew Jonathan Bernstein as well as many cousins, aunts and an uncle.
    A Celebration of Life will be held at The Temple, 1589 Peachtree Rd, NW, Atlanta, GA 30309,
    on Sunday, July 24 at 2 pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to First Tee ( or the charity of your choice. Arrangements by Dressler's Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.

    I am so sorry and saddened to hear of Peter’s passing. He was a popular, athletic, cool “upper classman” in our high school, and a warm, kind, dapper, charming Atlanta friend who adored his family. May your many happy memories remain a source of comfort.

    To the Rosen Family, Sorry to read that you lost Peter. When I saw his name, his bright smile immediately flashed into my mind. His entire face lit up when he smiled, as they say, a smile that could light up a room. I will be thinking of you. May you be comforted among the mourners in Zion and Jerusalem.
