Rocky was our neighbor....he developed a relationship with our family over the years...even came to support our son at his basketball games. We will miss the “yard” conversations....he took great care of his yard and we will miss seeing him out there.

Rocky was my neighbor for a number of years although I didn't know him well he was always smiling and waving at me while he was working in his yard .
He will be greatly missed.
