Don Rosencrantz passed away in December, 2022. Don lived in California and details are scarce so for now we will remember Don with the following comments:
Having visited Don a few times in recent years, I can honestly tell you that Don lived for Kappa Alpha Society. He never married and didn’t have any close relatives. As such, his KA brothers were truly his family.

We (KAAALU) owe Don a few extra Kaloses for the years he spent as board president while the house was struggling. That had to require a lot of time dealing with both the university and trying to get the house in line.

Don was tireless, he almost single-handedly built and prosecuted a reduced occupancy requirement. It relieved one of the many obstacles placed by the University and kept us in the Lodge for a couple of additional years.
Here’s to you our chosen friend – Mark Yoder
I knew Don since I was an undergraduate when he showed up at every Lehigh-Lafayette game and always had a big smile. He loved KA and Lehigh. Don hung tough and was responsible for keeping the chapter alive. I will personally miss him. We had many fun phone calls and emails and he was an inspiration and did so much for KA.

I remember as an undergrad, I would see a california number pop up and knew it was Don. There is an inner circle of KA in VL alums that have supported the Society through thick and thin, and Don was no exception to that.
YITB – Evan Gerber
His energy towards KA was endless and badly needed! He really helped the KAAALU by offering/agreeing to be president at a time when we had trouble filling that position.
