He was raised in Mahaica in British Guiana and was educated at Mount St Mary's College in England. Returning to British Guiana following World War II, the newly wed David Rose joined the colonial police force and later became Assistant Commissioner of Police (Crime). In 1960-61 he was appointed as defense officer to the Federal Government of the West Indies Federation in Trinidad. Following the breakup of the Federation, between 1964 and 1966, he was the Administrator of Antigua. He was then transferred to a newly independent Guyana, where he served as Governor General from 1966 to 1969.
He was killed in an accident while visiting London to relinquish his post. The honours he received included the Colonial Police Medal with bar for gallantry, and the highest award of Guyana, the Order of Excellence, which was awarded posthumously in 1970.
