Rocky Briggs Left Us on Wednesday, Aug 01. May He RIP. He Will Be Missed.


Gigi Briggs Speaks:  Rocky passed on Wed. He was OK. We had yogurt we were watching TV then he vomited. I clean him and he said he loved me then had a heart attack. He went in about 10 minutes no pain and god has him now.

Living in a senior park, I have lots of friends; yesterday 7 people came by; 30 phone calls and someone filled my fridge with food.

My life will be changing; not sure what I will do. Will spend time alone for a while then decide.

Let everyone know at your ends.

I’m really tired; have not slept for a month. While Rocky was sick I was constantly listening for a heart beat.

Took a sleeping pill last night it hasn’t worked yet.
Love,  Gigi.

    Rocky Briggs was truly a great man. A proud ex boxer who lived life to the fullest. A loving husband, caring family man and most importantly an irreplaceable friend to all who knew him. I am so saddened to hear of his departure to be with our Lord and Gigi you couldn’t have a finer man waiting for you with open arms at the gates of Heaven.
    And I can attest all of the Brazilian Team has a heavy heart today.

  3. Rocky and Gigi were mentors to Marolyn and I in all our shuffleboard endeavors. His presence will be missed. R.I.P.
