Rocky was one of my dads childhood friends. I have some photos of him from when they were in the army together and others. He was a really funny guy with a great sense of humor and a caring soul.

I grew up around Rocky, I'm his second cousin. I spent many hours hunting and hanging out with him. I always knew Rocky to be a kind and generous man, I consider him more than a relative, he was my friend. Rest in peace my friend. Steve Dille
