I knew Rocky since our Crockett days but not all that well, until the summer of 1970 when he , Tom Southworth, John Evans and I worked at Sav-A-Stop on Washington Avenue unloading railroad boxcars, then filling school supply orders, and then loading railroad boxcars with the filled orders. I was smaller and not as strong as Rocky and Tom and they liked to give me grief but I gave it back. I also had John Evans backing me up and within a couple of weeks we were all friends. RIP- Rocky

Rock and I were best buds at Crockett. We had a lot of adventures. Got in a lot of trouble. Had some of the best times of my young life. You couldn't ask for a more sincere, trustworthy friend than Rocky. I'm glad I got to spend a few hours with him when I came up for the last reunion. I will alway cherish my memories with "the Duke"

We were in a band together in 7th grade. We were going to kick the Beatles ass! 🤣

Forever your friend ❤️
