The memorial service for Murrieta attorney Wayne Rozenberg, on a Lake Perris track, has been announced.
The service begins at 3 p.m. Thursday at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills in the Church of the Hills Chapel, a family member said today.
"That what his part of town, where he grew up," said Cherie Ledesma, his sister.
Rozenberg was 46 and one of six siblings who grew up together in Eagle Rock, according to his sister.
"We were all close," Ledesma said. "Every other week we had family game night. Next weekend was supposed to be game night and instead we are burying our brother."
Rozenberg had lived in Murrieta for about eight years, according to his sister, where he owned a ranch property in La Cresta. He did not have children but was engaged to be married.
In lieu of flowers, family is requesting donations be made to help feed Rozenberg's 11 horses, along with his chickens, hogs and goats. With the news of his unexpected death, the family will be working on making arrangements for the animals.
"He would feed his animals before he would feed himself," Ledesma said.
Rozenberg, a criminal defense attorney who practiced in courtrooms including in Southwest Riverside County, would have also wanted all his colleagues and friends at his funeral, Ledesma said.
"He would have wanted the word out there; he would have wanted everyone there."
