I am sad to find that Bob has passed he was a wonderful man.
Funny always smiling and he carried Christ with him in everything he did. I will leave you with a poem i have written.

Parting Is Such Sweet Sarrow

Who knows if we will see tomorrow
We live each day without a care
Knowing God is always there

We know he has a plan
For every day we are here
So when God calls one home
We should be glad, stand up and cheer

Our loved ones in eternity
Surrounded with Gods loving light
Even though we miss them
There is an end in sight
Where we will be together
When we keep God first in site

So treasure those around you
They are truly gifts from God
Planted in our lives
To share love without a cause

I always loved my visits with Rocky. His stories of playing town ball and hitting home runs in Chanhassen were great. Along with some of the pictures he shared with me over the years from his days playing pro ball. Such a humble, wonderful man. Godspeed Rocky and you'll be missed!

Rocky was an amazing man. I was so lucky to have worked with him and hearing all of his wonderful stories. He always asked about my son and was truly a Godly man. I will always remember Rocky in my heart and the baseball he signed for my son. Priceless. He will be missed.
