Salt Lake native dies in Afghanistan

The Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY — A 43-year-old Utah native assigned to Fort Lewis in Washington state died from a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, his family said.

Army Sgt. Rocky Herrera was expected home early in 2008. He was killed Aug. 27 while trying to shield other soldiers, family members said.

“Rocky believed in what he was doing,” his mother, Elaine Herrera, said Aug. 29. “And he had to protect his troops because it was his job.”

Herrera boxed until he was 25 and was known in the ring as the “Rock.” He graduated from West High School and joined the military in his 20s. He left Salt Lake City about 10 years ago and was living in Lacey, Wash.

  Rocky,

It's been a year since you left us and it feels like an eterninty. Our lives are so different now without you. Thank you for being the best brother that you could be. I miss your phone calls and hearing about your projects. I also miss your prank calls too. Dominos has stopped calling me for money. :-)

We all miss you more that you can ever imagine. Our hearts are healing but it still hurts that you are not around. Keep visiting us in our dreams. It makes feel normal when we wake up. Even if it only last for a day.

Oh by the way, I know its you and Dad moving mine and AO's keys and hiding stuff from us. Well done!

I love you!

Albert

Adam D. Jones

Happy Birthday, Adam. You are missed so much every minute of everyday! XOXO ~143~ You will forever be in my heart and on my mind. Love always, Tammy


Laurie Cobb

She was my 3rd and 5th grade teacher. Today I'm 32 and still think about her. She was the best teacher ever. From her hair children stories to her bubbly happiness and kindness she spread. I'll never forget her. She was the teacher who had lunch with the kids in her classroom so everyone had someone to be with. She made my school experience amazing. I will never forget her.. I love you Mrs. Cobb. Sincerely, Forever in my thoughts, Alyssa (Viau) Capone


Larry E Polley Jr

SPC Polley died almost two decades ago so I don't know if this message will be seen. In honor of Memorial Day, my agency hands out cards with names of those who have fallen. This year, 2023, I received the card for SPC Polley and was inspired to look up more on him. I am thankful for his service and sacrifice. My condolences to his family. He is not forgotten.


Paul C. Holter III

Miss you brother


Alex D Gonzalez

Love you and miss you always. Since you been gone it has been hard for everyone. I know you loved what you did, and I want to thank you for our freedom. If I can have you back home and safe living your life man everything would be different. No matter how much money they would offer me I would rather have you alive and home. Money comes and go so it's not worth losing you.


Christopher D Young

hello my name is Jesus Vega I would like to give my condolences to Christopher's family and friends, I served with him in Iraq and slept in the same quarters. I have many fond memories of him. I have never forgotten his sacrifice. I would like to share that the greatest memory I had of Chris is that he would speak highly of his mom and how much she meant to him. Chris was a strong minded person and looked out for other. He was kind and friendly the he made friends with everyone. Chris was truly a great man! I sincerely apologize for not sharing sooner. but would like to express that Chris's memory will never be forgotten! though he is not with us he will always be in spirit! If this message gets to Christopher's mother I she could know she raised a great man and for that I thank you.

James David Parker

I knew James David Parker as "Dave" when he lived in Solon Ohio. We met when I moved into town from out of state. He and his group of friends were a year or two older than me. Dave was a bright beacon of hope and joy to me. I was an unsure young man in a strange place. Dave introduced me to many people and ensured his friends always saved me a seat in the lunchroom. I have fond memories of him and his friends during that time. I doubt so many people would have been as wonderful toward me without Dave's incredible kindness. I've never forgotten his kindness. I hope to be able to pay it forward someday.


Tyler O. Griffin
