Detroit DesRosiers Family
Filed under: Desrosiers, Michigan, Detroit, 1940s
Posted by: Mike @ 11:23 am

Here is a photo of Johnny DesRosiers (my dad’s best friend in the early 1940s) and his sisters and mother.
Presumably it’s in front of their Detroit house (not sure where).  If I’m correct, depicted is John, his mother Agatha, sisters Noella and Antonia and possibly a sister-in-law (Mary?).
John also had an older brother, Joe, who died in WW2 (Aime Joseph Des Rosiers).

John Des Rosiers

Johnny Desrosiers was my father’s best friend in Detroit around 1940. He was from a French Canadian family that moved to Michigan. These photos would have been taken around 1942.  Location of the “park” is unknown but almost certainly within Detroit, Michigan.  Belle Isle perhaps.
On the right side of the photo is my dad, Louis Chachich.

  

I believe this is the John DesRosiers who was born 12 June 1927 and died 5 June 2001 according to social security databases.  According to my mother his wife’s name was Lillian and was of Polish descent.
