At this time many memories surface. Bock was a friend and former spouse. He was in my life and my children's for 25 years. We kept in contact with Birthday songs, email and phone even after the divorce. I was with him,as was Chris when they gave him the diagnosis of cancer. They told him 3 months, but Bock surprised
us all by continuing to travel and do his art for many more years.
He did a terrific job raising Christopher, and they stayed in close
contact . Chris...

We will always miss Bock. He was a big part of our lives for the last 20 years. We met him in Florida and spent many evenings playing dominoes or eating his "Swedish" style meals cooked in his mother's old pots. One of our favorite things about Bock were his surprise visits in the morning in Florida for coffee and chats. Invariably, he would find me in one of my old chenille he from then on, asked me in his phone calls "what are you wearing"? I plan on...

My heartfelt thoughts go out to family and friends on your loss of Bock. We grew up in the same neighborhood in MN, went to same church and schools. Fond memories of building snow forts and surviving treacherous toboggan rides! Dearly missed at 50th Hopkins HS reunion 9/15/12.

Bock's family,
I extend my heartfelt love and understanding during this challenging time. When visiting with Bock at his farm in August of 2011, I was taken with his passion for rescuing cats and how much he enjoyed tubing on the river. We talk about so many subjects in such a few hours. He was very engaged and his comments were insightful and gut-wrenching hilarious on life. We shared our similar experiences and interests. Both of us wanted to rescue more animals than we could ever...

Bock going to a float and his friend Deena who shared stories of living with cancer.

My deepest sympathy to Bock's family and friends. He will be greatly missed. He loved the floats on the river, so thought this picture taken in August of 2011 would remind us all of his better days.
