Rocky was raised in a God-fearing home and was very involved in church life at a young age, but it wasn’t long before a series of events bought him down the wrong path. Married in 1980, things got worse, but his wife, who loved him dearly, didn’t give up on him. Several years after accepting Jesus into his heart in 1974, Rocky realized he could not do it alone and rededicated his life to Christ. Jesus had to change him, and things started to change!
