A Note from the Rosen Family


Allen Rosen moved to Knoxville in 1948 at the age of 6 when his parents, Sam and Esther Rosen, purchased the Knoxville Junk Company. Sam and Esther loved Knoxville and raised a family with Allen, his brother, Hal, and sister, Rachel.  Allen attended Heska Amuna and Temple Beth El’s joint Sunday School at the downtown JCC, became a bar mitzvah at Heska Amuna Synagogue, and was proud to be the president of Rabbi Isaac Winick AZA.  In 1964, he married Alexandra Palmer and they made a home for themselves in West Hills.  His career in the family business led him to be the president of Knox Metals Corporation.  He helped take it from a local junk yard into a regional scrap iron and metals broker-dealer that punched above its weight.  Allen and Alexandra raised two children, Stephen and Katheryn.  From Memorial Day to Labor Day, they could be found at the AJCC Pool each Saturday and Sunday, from open to close.  Allen could swim the length of the pool underwater (with Katheryn on his back!) and loved to show off his famous “back-jack” dive.  Eating a couple of hot dogs, throwing a few kids in the shallow end, and downing several fountain Coca-colas and Snickers bars while talking with friends and family made for a great summer day.
