Robert G. Rockhold Obituary
Ramona Robert G. Rockhold, a longtime resident of Ramona, passed away on August 9, 2018 at the age of 102. He was born in South Dakota in 1916, and was raised in a "company town" where his father worked in the Homestake mine. Robert went to school, played trombone in the band and after he graduated, he left for Chicago to study business. When the war broke out, he joined the Air Force and served in the Philippines. When he was discharged, he moved to Stockton, CA, where he met and married Joan, his wife of 63 years. After Robert retired, they moved to Ramona to be near their two children, Phil and Gail, who had settled in the area. They joined the Ramona Lutheran Church, and spent their time playing tennis and square dancing until Joan passed in 2009. After Joan's passing, he spent his days on the porch watching the birds and reading. It was a quiet but happy life. Robert was a good and gentle man, serving God and his family. People will remember there was always a smile on his face.The family would like to thank the caregivers that helped to keep that smile on his face over the years and friends who stopped in to say hello.Services were held privately by the family, but if anyone wishes to honor his life, they may send a contribution to Ramona Lutheran Church in his name.
