Dane Alexander Roset, 19, loving son and brother, passed away suddenly on January 18, 2019. Born in Little Rock to Bjorn and Kathryn Massey Roset, he worked as a heating and air technician and a volunteer firefighter. Dane was utterly dependable, always selfless and a hard worker. He was a first friend to many, a great partner and teammate, and made himself a big brother to the kids around him. He gave everyone a chance, no matter who they were or what they might have done. Dane was an avid outdoorsman. He loved animals, was a fish "whisperer," and worked as a lifeguard. He was an MMA and BJJ coach and instructor, an amateur MMA fighter and a champion BJJ fighter.
He is survived by his parents; brothers, Connor Roset (Sydney) of Conway, Jacob Roset, Kennet Roset and Ryan Roset, all of Little Rock; grandparents, Sally Massey of Little Rock, Rose Roset-Gran and Tore Gran, both of Norway; aunt, Pam Killebrew of Little Rock and cousins, Brian Killebrew and Mary Jacobsen (Jamey, Hannah and Emily); uncle, Viggo Roset of Norway and cousins, Julie Roset and Martin Roset; and a host of other family and friends.
Services will be held at Highland Valley United Methodist Church on Saturday, January 26, at 2:00 p.m., officiated by Rev. Jennie Williams. The family asks that you wear bright colors to celebrate Dane. His favorite color is purple.
