Rock shared life with his wife and soulmate, Teri Keegan. They met in 1970 at Pacemaker, their first job, at the time Teri had a mean orange “Judge” that she drove, he liked the car and Teri too.  A good day for Rock was driving truck; he owned and operated “Rock Hard Haulin” and then finishing the day on the farm helping his father in-law Jim Turner.  Rock loved the Marine Corps, Jeeps, his family, Harleys, Pepsi and cigarettes; that is why you are reading this.

Teri and Family,

I’m so sorry for your loss. Rock was an amazing guy. The memories will last a life time. I knew I could always count on Rock. He would always be at the farm while I helped with the ponies or a phone call away. His laugh was a catchy one, it always made me smile.

Until we meet again.

Sending love and prayers.
