    Rock was one of the first guys to reach out to me when I joined the 101 association.  He would check in every once in a while as I was completing my rebuild. Those check ins sometimes got me back on track as other things in life seemed to keep getting in the way of finishing. 
    I didn’t know Rock before the 101 association but he knew of my family. Hearing him recall times where my grandfather would ride past his house on one of his old Indians and how it made a huge impression on him was heartwarming. We talked about getting out for 101 rides when I finished. Sadly those rides will never happen. 
    Earlier this summer Rock and I attended the Hiltop Farm car show together. It was a great, beautiful day and we had a chance to talk bikes, family and riding.
    I wish there could have been more time and I could have gotten to know him better. 

    Rest In Peace Rock.
