Brewster Native and TV Golf Analyst Tim Rosaforte Dies at 66
According to Golf Digest, Tim Rosaforte Passed Away Tuesday (1/11/22) at the Age of 66.
Rosaforte’s death is reportedly being attributed to complications from Alzheimer’s Disease. He was a senior writer for Golf Digest, worked for Sports Illustrated and was a TV Golf Analyst for over 20 Years working for the Golf Channel. He passed away in Florida but was a Brewster High School graduate who was born in Mount Kisco.
Tim was a force in the Golf world and his impact touched the lives of some of pro golf’s biggest names, like Jack Nicklaus. In response to the news of Rosaforte’s passing, Nickalus tweeted out:
“Barbara and I know we join many in offering our heartfelt condolences and prayers to Genevieve, daughters Genna and Molly, three precious grandchildren, and the countless friends Tim made over the years—including us.”
The man was an award-winning writer and a successful TV personality and a family man. Rosaforte obviously lived a full life but it was way too short and my prayers go out to his family.
P.S. I did not know Tim personally but my family did. My father and a few of my cousins played football at Brewster High School when he was coaching there.
When I heard the sad news, I reached out to them and they all had wonderful things to say about him. One remarked he "took me under his wing and was a well-rounded guy, who always took the time to help us when we were younger."
Another cousin shared a story about Rosaforte's high school playing days. He said he remembered a game at Brewster where "Timmy hit a guy so hard, he cracked his helmet in half."
