I met Rocky in the early 1990's. He checked our hunting property several times. I had recently gotten out of the military. I recall on my military performance evaluations one of my goals was to become a game warden.
Rocky was kind enough to give me his telephone number and I called him numerous times to get information on the best things that I could do to accomplish my goal. He talked with me for hours and gave me pointers. He helped me to prepare for the written test and he was also the background investigator for my hiring package. I guess he did a wonderful job as I was hired on January 1st 1993 (14th Ranger Academy). I served 22 years with the department in the Law Enforcement Section now Law Enforcement Division. Thanks to all the help that you gave me Rocky. I have the utmost respect for you and your kind hearted ways. It doesn't surprise me that you were helping search for a suspected murdered child when your accident happened. I would love to hear from your family if they would ever be willing to contact me. Stay Safe
