Rocky came to the funeral of my uncle Bill Dibrell who had taught him in San Marcos many years before. His kind words and his taking the time to attend a former teacher's funeral meant a lot to me and other family members. I am sure this is but one example of his giving to others. My condolences to his family. I know he will be missed by many.

I spent many weekends with my Grandpa Woods at his garage as a child. The biggest highlight was walking to Rocky's for an afternoon treat! He always made sure to stop and talk to me AND he had a fine selection of candy! He will be missed.
