Harry remember when we got our dog pal the look on your face was priceless we loved him so much
I will forever miss our phone conversations I would call you at any time of day and you were always there. We would talk while you were driving your work truck around.

I remember the time I called you and you were having dinner with your new lady friend and I went into sister mode asking all kinds of questions then you finally gave me her name and it was Tammy.
You sounded the happiest I had heard you in a long time. The rest is history you didn’t need me anymore because you found the lady you were destined to be with.

I love you more then I can express, we were inseparable for a long time then you found your path. My heart aches for you. I can’t believe you are now in another place to think I will never see that grin of yours is unacceptable to me. Be free brother I love you ❤️

I've only met Harry a couple of times at their house and they had the most loving relationship I've ever seen that people would dream to have my heart goes out to Tammy and all your family I'm so very sorry

Harry Rock Jr

Words cannot convey how much of a great man you were I’m so glad I spent time I did with you I’ll never forget the day seeing the look on your face you and uncle Bud's face got the Harley up and going. Got it on the road then you decide we want to go on a road trip and as we were going over the mountain there is a clearing in the trees were you’re looking down on beautiful lake While you were on your bike and I was on your old bike side by side just the two of us and as we rounded the corner we both looking at the beautiful scenery we each have in front of us and right above us was two eagles flying next which other side by side. Dad and I both smiled at each other there seeing that we both got crazy goosebumps then kept riding off into the sun.

You will always be in my heart dad there is nothing in my life or anything that I do that don’t remind me of you the wise words you gave me growing up made into good man today. I love you with all my heart and I will continue to make you proud. While you’re up there tell Chris Farley I said hi I know you liked him.

As I sit here and look at your home that you used to live in , when you were our neighbor down the road, it sadness our family to hear of this. Harry and his family will always be remembered by our family and his true act of kindness when they went out and surprised my son and got him a electric scooter, mind you we didn’t even really know each other at the time. He truly was a great, kind hearted man. My condolences to his family

Tyler Rock

I'd give anything to have one more conversation, one big hug, and to hear you laughing. To go to your house and see you working on your truck to have you tell me exactly whats wrong then have it be fixed in no time. To eat pb+j with our greasy hands and were yelled at to wash them first. I love you dad I will always remember you as the best dad in the world and I was lucky to have such a great father figure in my life.

Colleen Russell

Although I have only met you a few times, you made my friend Tammy extremely happy, and for that I appreciate all you have done and were to her. RIP Harry..

Lura Amero

I can't believe you're gone. I can't even imagine what your family is going through. Tiffany, Elisa, Ben and I send our condolences to the entire Rock family. Thinking of you all and praying for you.

Amber Rock

Dad I am still waiting for you to walk through the door... Or find you sitting in your chair. I would give up the best day of fishing for one more day with you... Love you Daddy!!
