After reading this, I'm convinced this is the same Rockey we knew & loved as kids. We would visit him in that cold water flat in Chicago. I remember once my best friend, Judy & I baked him a birthday cake. That oven was so lopsided that the cake came out that way too. Good thing it was two layers. Put the thin side of the top layer up against the thick side of the bottom layer & "glued" it all together with the frosting. It looked just fine. I would love to communicate with Rockey. He was an inspiration to us. A good, good man. Sincerely, Gloria Russell firstname.lastname@example.org

I knew a Charles Rockey, artist, that lived in Chicago, when I was a kid. And he was from Colorado. Could this possibly be the same guy? Very hard to tell by the pictures as I was about 16 and he maybe 28. That would make him about 82 now. Could this be? He was an excellent, unrecognised artist at the time. I was intrigued by his picture about alcoholism.......
a person trying to exit the bottle. If it is our "Rockey" I'd love to hear from him. Please pass on my email address, or let me know how I can get in touch with him. Thanks, Gloria Russell
