Michael Alan Rockwell, 57, of Dumont passed away early in the morning of Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019. Michael was born on Nov. 11, 1961, in Gallup, N.M., to MaryJane Gabel and Robert Rockwell.
Michael served a short time in the Army, followed by many trade jobs, before finding his love of mining working at Henderson Mine, where he spent 23 years and retired in 2015. Michael had a passion for collecting rocks and gemstones and the outdoors. Some of the many things he enjoyed included hunting, camping, 4-wheeling, being with his boys in his garage "getting it done" and spending time with family and his dog Charli.
Michael was preceded in death by his father Robert, his brother Rocky, his mother MaryJane, his sister Bunnie and his stepfather Jerry.
He is survived by his wife Lela Dianna Rockwell; daughter Ashley Mossor; sons Rocky Rockwell (Maegan) and Colt Rockwell (Serenity); grandchildren Alyssa, Thomas Jameson, Kylina, Ariana, Baer, Baron and Leoric; brothers Terry (Nancy) and Rick (Judi); sisters Sharon (John), Laurie (Ed), Holly (Dave) and Merri (Buster); and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
