I was saddened to hear the news of Frank's passing. He was devoted to his family (Diane and Andrea). He had a smile on his face and a great sense of humor no matter what he was dealing with. It was a pleasure working with him at P&C for several years. My thoughts and prayers go out to Diane and Andrea. Frank has a great man. He will be missed.

Jackie Smith P&C X-ray Services, Houston, TX

My thoughts and prayers are with the Rocha Family at this difficult time. Frank was quite a character with a phenomenal sense of humor. He had a knack for telling stories that would keep you laughing. I met and knew Frank through his Sales Career in the X-Ray Business. He was well respected and will be missed.

Hector DiVito, Sugar Land, TX

I knew Frank way back when I was Just a new X-ray tech. Frank was always there to give encouragement and support. He will be missed.

Kammy Hamner, Houston, TX

I enjoyed and looked forward to our walks. Rest in peace Mr. Rocha.

Sharon Emde, Houston, TX

There was never a conversation with Frank that didn't make you feel better, smile more, or laugh hysterically. He caused everyone around him to feel better and see the bright side. What a legacy. I am honored to have known him. Diane and Andrea: you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Nathan Carter, Missouri City, TX

I am so sorry for your loss. My heart breaks for you. Frank was the coolest and funniest guy I ever met. No matter what was going on, he always had a smile on his face (and a joke or two). I will miss him so much but he will always have a special place in my heart.

Tobi Troxell, Houston , TX

Sonny was one of the greatest! He could make the most mundane thing enjoyable; his optimism, joy for life, and laughter was infectious. I only knew him for a short time but in those few years he left a huge mark. His spirit was larger than life and his soul brighter than any star. I am confident that the Angels are surrounding him, he's cracking jokes, and filling heaven with laughter. Earth has lost a great man but heaven has gained one of the brightest lights. Our thoughts, love, and prayers are with you now.

Tiffany, Thane, and Tanner, Austin, Texas

I didnt expect to wake up and find out you were gone. It hurts more and more everytime I realize I cant laugh and talk to my uncle anymore. I love you more than words can express. You were always like a father to me and for a while we lost contact but that never changed my love for you. I am just happy and thankful I was able to see that smile again before you went home to God. I miss you so much Uncle Frank and I love you so much. Thank you for being in my life as my uncle, a father, my best friend. Till I see you again...save those laughs!

Angela Rocha (Simmons), Houston, TX

We will forever cherish our memories of Uncle Sonny! He filled our lives and hearts with love, happiness, and lots of laughter!

May God watch over Aunt Dee, Andrea, Bill and Ethan during this time of sadness and bring them peace and comfort! We love you all!
