DERRICK ROSAIRE, JR.

Prominent Suncoast animal trainer has died
Updated: April 9, 2010 09:15 PM EDT
SARASOTA COUNTY - The most well known family of animal trainers on the Suncoast has suffered a tremendous loss. 55-year-old Derrick Rosaire, Jr. died Thursday night from stage four melanoma cancer.
He was best known for handling the bears at Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary in Sarasota County.
Although Friday's show was canceled, Saturday's show will go on.
In lieu of flowers, Kay Rosaire asks that the community donate money to the sanctuary in honor of her only brother, to take care of the very animals that will miss him.
Derrick Rosaire, Jr. had two sons

  1. My condolences to the Rosaire and Zoppe family. We worked with Derrick and his family in southeast Asia back in 1987-88 on the Great European Circus. My prayers are with you all.
