Mr. Ware was born on June 6,1949 in San Antonio, Texas and passed away on Feb 3, 2017 in Bryan, Texas after a short but courageous battle with cancer. He was the third child born to Babe and Euna Ware. He enlisted in the U.S Navy and was stationed in San Diego, Cali. He then boarded the U.S.S Constellation. With his service, he was able to travel to various parts of the world. His travels abroad were no match for the beauty he found in Bryan, TX when he met and married Beverly Utecht on Dec 31,1973. They would spend forty-three years together and have twin sons, Jason and Justin.
Rocky worked for Texas A&M University from which he would retire. Rocky also was active in Brazos County Precinct 3 Volunteer Fire Department where he served as Chief for a number of years. Rocky was well known for his sense of humor and making people laugh, it was part of his spirit. From cracking a joke or picking on his family. He certainly could make a bad situation a little easier.
In his retirement he enjoyed fishing with his son Jason and his brother Cecil, going to have coffee his good friend Travis or sitting for hours with Sudoku or Facebook…or a combination of both.
Rocky’s parents Babe and Euna Ware; his sister Judith Ware; his father and mother in law, Edward and Doris Utecht and a grandson Michael Lynn Ware; all pre-deceased him.
Rocky is survived by his wife Beverly Ware; his twin sons Jason and wife Loren, Justin and partner Patrick; his brother Cecil and wife Juanita; his brother-in-law Doug Utecht and wife Beke; his brother-in-law Mike Utecht and wife Karen; his adored
Grandchildren Skyler and Grey; as well as his good friend Travis Gray…and a host of nieces, nephews and close friends.
“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I’ll go to it laughing”
