Rocky Akers' Funeral Expenses



Rocky was a gentle giant with an even bigger heart.  Everyone that knew him, loved him.  Whether on the football field, in the parking lot of the Plaza, or hanging out at the paylake, Rocky always had a kind word, hug, or a handshake for everyone.  There was no one bigger, or better.  

Rocky passed away suddenly today from injuries sustained in a car accident.  He was up and talking and then he was gone.  We ALL miss him terribly.

Rocky's passing is hard on us all, but most of all his family.  Please consider donating to help offset the cost for his family.  All donations will go directly to the funeral home for expenses and then if we get extra, will be used to help where needed.  

Thank you all so much.  Our lives will never be the same.

Update:  We have recently found out that the total cost for funeral expenses is $8000.  Although we have about met our goal, please keep donating.  Any amount will help offset the final, total cost.  Thank you all.
