    Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the entire family during this difficult time. Rocky was a very colorful member of the MIHS Class of 1969. I didn’t see Rocky much after high school but remember he had tremendous athletic abilities especially in track and field as a long distance runner. He was a very likable individual with a good sense of humor. i always considered him a good friend. RIP Rocky.
