Roger “Rocky” Barbour was born September 8th,1958 in Charlottesville, VA. He was born to the late Roscoe Barbour and Ruby Jones-Barbour. Roger gained his wings and entered his eternal resting place on February 4th, 2024.
At an early age Roger joined Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Greenwood, VA where he served on the choir and usher board. Roger attended Albemarle County Public Schools. Roger wore many hats in his career. He worked for Concrete Contractors pouring concrete and would often say as he traveled to different locations in the state “I poured that concrete or I built that wall”.

He enjoyed hanging with friends, fishing, playing horseshoes, shooting cornhole, shooting pool and enjoyed scratch tickets. Rocky also loved football and was a DIEHARD Dallas Cowboys fan, everyone who knew him knew he was Dallas Cowboys win or lose. MOSTLY Rocky enjoyed babysitting his grandbaby “Booty” (Jaliyah). She was the air he breathed…if Rocky had a choice of staying here for her he would do just that, he loved his “Booty” just that much.
