Rocky was a great teammate, teacher, and even better opponent on the pool table, whether it was a 5 minute or 5 hour conversation when we ran into one another he always greated with a smile, and a fist bump! Rest easy ole buddy, will see you again some day.....Till then keep that cue rolling !

Rocky was an amazing person and a father figure to my brothers and me. We would ask him how to do things and he would teach us every time we asked for help . He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it no questions asked. He was a thoughtful man and he will be truly missed R.I.P ROCKY FLY HIGH SIR UNTILL WE MEET AGAIN

Rocky will always live within me when I play the game that he loved so much. He taught me a lot, but more than anything I'll miss our conversations. Somewhere above he's breaking a rack on the perfect table and running racks for eternity.
