“I will always remember the way Brock would walk into a room and just light it up with his smile and outgoing personality. Brock always had a positive outlook for any situation and I will never forget the great advise he gave me over the years of working with him. He was so very proud of his family and his boys and never did a meeting with him not include a great story about them that made him proud. My prayers go out to his family. ”
