It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of our Chairman of the Board, Dr. S. Timothy Rose. Dr. Rose was a passionate and energetic advocate for the lock system and his leadership helped restore the lock system and rescue a national treasure. We will miss his dedication, depth of knowledge of the region and the river, and his sense of humor. We are all thankful for the time he invested in the system and will miss him deeply.

Shortly before Dr. Rose passed, we sat down with him to review the important work the Fox River Navigational System Authority has done to re-open the lock system. We share his words with you and hope you also remember a true community servant.
