Sorry for your loss. Rocky and I drove against each other starting over 28 years ago. No matter where you saw him at he would always come up and shake your hand and talk no matter if it had been years since we saw each other. He will be greatly missed.

You know I'm sorry this time come, I wouldn't around Rocky all that much, but he was alway nice to me and he always had a smile on his face everytime I saw him. I'm most thankful for the time he spent with my son Jacob Ray, he was an inspiration to Jake, I know Jake loved him very much, and respected him, and will miss him very much. Myself I am very thankful to have known him.
I hope God will be there with you Debra, and the rest of the family, during this time, I' am sure he will.

I am so very sorry for the loss of Rocky. I have known him as long as i can remember. He always had the best smile on his face and was the most friendliest person i have ever met. If anyone ever met Rocky they loved him. He had so many friends that is gonna miss him dearly! My heart hurts for all the family and i pray that god wraps his arms around you in this time of need and wipes away your tears. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal but love leaves a memory no one can steal. Praying for you all!
