Royalton, Vt. — Rocky G. Osmer, 49, died Thursday, July 5, 2018, at his home unexpectedly, surrounded by his family.

Rocky was born Aug. 26, 1968, in Lebanon, N.H., a son of Rodney and Linda (French) Osmer. He attended Thetford Academy, and went to work for Pompanoosuc Mills working as a driver and a laborer. He married Tina Winters Sept. 9, 1987. They moved to Enfield before moving to White River Junction and later Wilder. In 2002, they bought their first home together in East Haven, Vt. where they lived until 2012 when they moved to Royalton.

Rocky was an avid hunter. He enjoyed both rifle and crossbow hunting. He also enjoyed fishing and could be found by the shore. But his greatest joy was family. He loved to cook for everyone and made sure everyone was fed.
