BioSafe Systems CEO Dies at 64

BioSafe Systems is remembering its leader, Rob Larose, who died on Sept. 25, 2022, at the age of 64:

He was a visionary businessman and BioSafe Systems’ employees, industry partners, lifelong colleagues and friends all mourn his loss immensely.

Rob LaroseRob started this company in the basement of his home in New Jersey and used his business acumen to commercialize peroxyacetic acid and grow BioSafe Systems into a thriving national presence. It was Rob’s ambition to expand to the West Coast, build and develop three manufacturing sites across the country, and explore opportunities in modern markets. Rob took every defeat and learned from it, and that’s why BioSafe Systems is the success it is today.

BioSafe Systems is prepared to continue in Rob’s absence and move forward with its resolute directives. The Larose Family will remain at the forefront with his daughter Lauren Larose Crane stepping in as president. Lauren has been committed to BioSafe Systems all her adult life and directed the Operations Department for the last 10 years, ensuring optimum efficiency of daily operations and supported by a strong management team. BioSafe Systems is looking forward to a future that honors Rob’s entrepreneurial ideals, makes him proud, and illustrates how thankful we are for the wisdom and guidance he gave us.

Larose is survived by his wife Mary Ann (Nemeth) Larose; three children, Michael Larose, Lauren Crane and Husband Justin, and Matthew Larose; and granddaughters Emma and Ava Crane. His obituary can be found on the Hartford Courant.
