My sincere condolences to the family of Rocky who I consider to be a part of since we first met in in 1967 when I employed at Allied Chemical. I can in all honesty say that Rocky was my best friend on the job and for the past 53 years I never lost contact with him. I made periodic visits to his home where I was always welcomed by both he and his wife Olga who made me feel right at home.
I will miss those visits with Rocky and Olga that I so much enjoyed but will cherish the memories of his friendship that we had until we meet again.
