Vernon Lynn "Rocky" Brumfield, born on June 17, 1961, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, to Myrna Larsen and Lynn Brumfield. Rocky, the lively middle son among seven siblings, including brothers Ronnie, Danny, Mike, Rodney, Trent, and sister Wendy, brought boundless energy and a boisterous spirit to his family.
Rocky commenced his professional journey in Idaho as a mason tender, later transitioning to metal stud framing and becoming a proud member of the Metal Stud Union in California. It was in California that he found his soulmate, Jerita Lamberson, and they joyfully exchanged vows on November 7th, 2002.
In 2005, Rocky and Jerita relocated to Oklahoma to be closer to family, where he swiftly embraced membership in the Oklahoma Carpenters Union. His diverse skills ranged from chimney sweeping to duct cleaning, and up until his untimely passing, he dedicated his efforts to revitalizing rental properties and repairing burnouts alongside Pto (Tau) Nguyen.
Rocky was renowned for his robust work ethic and versatility as a jack of all trades. Anyone who knew him can attest that he was not one to shy away from expressing his opinions, often doing so with a volume that resonated well beyond his immediate surroundings. Yet, beneath the vibrant exterior was a man of profound dedication.
As a devoted husband to Jerita, Rocky showered her with affection and watched her every move with an adoring smile. He was a formidable protector, ensuring that no one dared to cross paths with his beloved Jerita. Their life together was filled with laughter, and those fortunate enough to call Rocky a friend knew they had found a companion for life.
Jerita fondly recalls Rocky's self-assured moments when he would gaze into the mirror and proclaim, "I am gooood looking!"—a testament to his charismatic and confident demeanor. His love extended beyond his wife to encompass his children, family, friends, his cherished dog Doobie, and the pride he took in his work.
Rocky's passing leaves a void that will be deeply felt by all who had the privilege of knowing him. May his vibrant spirit and enduring love continue to resonate in our hearts as we remember a man who lived life loudly and loved even louder.
