There are those in life that cross our paths to teach us, make us laugh, or lend a hand... Rocky covered all of that and then some. His concern for a person’s well-being was immeasurable, and I pray my heart grows to the size of his.

All love & a little bit of Rock n’ Roll...

Rocky always had a story and a laugh to share. He had the uncanny ability to make anyone feel welcome and heard. He was a great person who will be missed greatly at JAG and as a friend. May he rest in peace.
