Reginald H. Rock
12/26/1928 – 11/12/2017
Reginald Herbert Rock, 88 passed away November 12 2017. At his home in Powell, Wy.
Rock was a man of many facets. He was a “sheep” man. He lived with all things sheep his whole life. He learned this trade from his father whom he admired greatly. He loved dealing with growers, sorting animals at delivery time, making the best buy he could and he was a hard man to beat in the auction ring.
He had integrity and commitment to God, to those he loved and to people generally. No matter how difficult the task or how sorrowful he was, he never gave up.
He played his Hammond organ for hours to celebrate or to help him heal. He enjoyed hiking, fishing, exploring new places and learning new skills. He also liked breeding his Border Collies, training them and just playing with them. They were his crew, his pals and a comfort to him.
His personal commitment to God was the keystone of his life and directed his decisions. No one was too small or too wounded to earn his time, attention and tenderness. He mended broken wings of birds and wounded spirits of other people. He knew how to laugh and have fun. He was not afraid to step up when needed and never quit. His commitment was to the completion or end of a task. He never let old events cloud the discovery of the new. He simply pressed on with joy and love for God.
He was loved and admired by many, enjoyed his life and left to go home to his reward with an eager spirit. He will be missed but never forgotten.
Funeral services will be Friday Nov. 17, 2017, 2:00 pm at the Faith Community church in Ralston.
Burial will be in the Crown Hill Cemetery.
