I'll always remember the stories Rocky would tell during our chats at WalMart! He always kept an eye on what was going on at the station and would definitely tell me about it if he thought something wasn't the way it ought to be! Denise and I have your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Rocky was the sweetest greeter at Wal-Mart. He always had a kind word about our work here at KFDX and a story from his past to share as well. My thoughts and prayers are with your family as you sail free forever Rocky.
