Thomas Rosse Passes Away Peacefully Today
Thomas Rose was an amazing father to seven who did great things in his life. Today he passed peacefully away, but we honor and remember him fondly for everything he contributed during his years on this Earth.
Rosse Enterprises Limited was formed after Allied-Signal purchased Instrumentation Laboratory. To finance it, Rosse used his shares in Allied as collateral against bank loans.
Early Life and Education
Thomas Rosse was 93 years old at his death on January 31st 2021. Born April 21, 1927 in Worcester MA he resided there until his passing on January 31st. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.
He dedicated his life to building a machine capable of thought. From an early age onwards this goal dominated his thinking; so much so that Scientific American published an article discussing his thoughts.
The board determined that Rosse’s activities did not rise to the level of operating a trade or business, with no evidence pointing towards any quick sales of entities in which he invested or continuous consulting and lending activities during 1989 and 1990.
Tom Rosse was an individual of great intellect and integrity who lived his life with honesty and kindness. Born April 21st 1927 and passing away January 31st 2021.
Rosse Enterprises Limited (REL), founded by Rosse in 1983 to finance startup companies and other long-term investments, earned money three ways: interest earned on loans to companies; increases in equity positions granted; and fees from management consulting services provided by REL.
He has successfully litigated intellectual property matters throughout the United States in over twenty-five federal district courts and six federal appellate courts, managing patent litigation in Europe as well. Additionally, he lectures regularly on patent law topics to both business and legal organizations.
Achievement and Honors
Thomas Rosse has collaborated with numerous acclaimed musicians, such as Pierre Henry Xuereb, Philippe Muller, Helene Bertrand, Dejan Bogdavovic and Christophe Giovaninetti. Additionally he has conducted master-classes at both National Conservatory of Marseille and Royal Conservatory of Liege.
He designed and constructed several giant telescopes. His 72-inch telescope, the Leviathan of Parsonstown, held the record as the world’s largest in terms of aperture size until the early 20th century.
His work was crucial in establishing the existence of spiral nebulae and disproving the nebular hypothesis, which held that planets and stars formed from gravitational attraction to gaseous nebulae. Furthermore, he pioneered techniques for casting large solid mirrors: creating ventilated molds so as to allow airflow in each section for cooling evenly, then casting his first 72-inch disk in 1842.
Thomas Rosse was born in Scotland and joined the California Gold Rush. While in California he painted town-landscapes and mining camps as well as marine subjects and Yosemite landscapes. Rosse would eventually pass away in 1896.
No information exists regarding his family life; however, we know he married twice and had one daughter from both marriages. Additionally, he showed an interest in theology.
His first wife Anne AMES died in 1631 and evidence suggests he and his children emigrated to Scituate Massachusetts before 1640.
At some point in his career, he created many innovative devices. One such invention was the Robot Rat. As the first practical automaton, this device could navigate mazes filled with blind alleys by trial and error learning techniques; additionally it responded to stimuli such as food, drugs, electric shock, or bursts of air blasting from outside sources.
Rozonda Thomas is best known as one of the members of TLC (The Ladies Collective). Since joining, she has released several albums and appeared in many shows and films; her net worth is estimated to be around $11 Million.
Rosse Enterprises Limited (REL), founded after the acquisition of Instrumentation Laboratory by Allied-Signal, provided financing and consulting services to start-up companies as well as slow-growth companies that appeared to possess long-term growth potential. Rosse hoped that REL would generate income both through loan interest payments to these businesses as well as gains in value from his equity positions in these businesses.
The board correctly disregarded Rosse’s testimony that his activities constituted conduct of a trade or business because nothing in the record supports his assertion that they were regular and continuous throughout 1989 and 1990.
