"Cheap ass Syracuse motherfuckers. Hope your plane gets Hijacked!
- Rosie
Chauncey "Rosie" Roosevelt is a recurring character on F is for Family. He's a man who works at the airport as a shop steward and baggage handler and a close friend of Frank Murphy. He is voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.


Rosie has been a longtime friend of Frank Murphy, though their friendship began to deteriorate in "The Trough", after he saw Frank insult African-American people on TV, and after Frank befriended the Airlines' CEO, Mr. Dunbarton.

Rosie's friendship with Frank was eventually restored after Frank resolved the conflict that led to a strike in "O Holy Moly Night". He also helped Frank receive new employment while Frank helped Rosie and the other airline employees deal with their new boss, Scoop Dunbarton in "A Girl Named Sue".

Rosie has to deal with racism often, especially at work. This is a major theme for him in Season 3, particularly as he is passed over for promotion to baggage manager and is at odds with Bob Pogo whose deep-seated racism comes to the fore in "The Stinger". In "Battle Of The Sexes", Rosie decided to run for alderman against Teddy Morewill, son of disgraced, ousted incumbent Edward Morewill. The media and establishment heavily favor the Caucasian, well-connected Teddy despite he himself being out on bail for lewd acts with a dog.

It was revealed in "Battle Of The Sexes", that Rosie has an illegitimate, Puerto-Rican son named Rosie Jr. who he conceived with an adult Puerto-Rican woman when he was 17 at a Puerto-Rican day parade. His relationship with his son seems to be somewhat complicated as he prefers not to talk about him and his kids were not even aware of the fact that Rosie Jr. was their parental half-brother, initially believing he was their uncle.
