Richard A. "Rocky" Pokorny
Richard A. Pokorny II, "Rocky", 39, passed away suddenly on July 23, 2017 at his home in Suffolk, VA. As a USN Seabee brat, he was born on Guam and was raised primarily in Mississippi and Virginia. A graduate of the University of South Mississippi, he was most passionate about sharing life with family, close friends and his work with Blonde Salon.
Left to cherish his memory are his beloved bulldog-Oxford; his grandmothers, Ruth and Nana; his parents, Rick and Kathy; his sister, Jen (Jim); his brother, James (Paola); his niece, Eily Kate; his nephews- JJ, Mateo and Gabriel; his partner, Tom; his Blonde Salon family of co-workers and patrons and many other dear family members and friends. Rocky never met a stranger. He always had a ready smile, infectious laugh and an encouraging word. Rocky's genuine gentle, loving spirit will be deeply missed by all.
