Bill Lee Rose


Our founder Bill L. Rose left this earth for greener pastures in heaven on November 7th at 4:41am. He will always be remembered as the visionary who started so many ventures: The family farm and cattle ranch Roselawn Seed, the research company Pure-Seed Testing, the grass seed production, services, and marketing companies; Turf Seed, Rose-Agri Seed, Pure Seed, and Tee-2-Green.

His family, friends, and employees were all blessed by his leadership, adventures, and love. Bill was a pioneer in the Oregon grass seed business and led the way in many advances for the seed industry.

From hunting trips to Christmas parties, Field Days, and business ventures, he lived life to the fullest wanting everyone to come along for the ride.

His legacy will live on in his family as we continue to grow the seeds that he planted in all our lives.

Thank you Bill for all that you have given us and the entire grass seed industry. You will be greatly missed.
