Stalin “Stal” R. Rocas, 46, passed away Friday, December 7, 2018, at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Florence Kentucky.

Selfless, generous and loving, Stalin Rocas was the quintessential family man. A warm, caring husband and a devoted father, his commitment to his loved ones were boundless. Stal was a gentleman with a kind and compassionate spirit who always worked hard and sacrificed in order to provide a better life for those he held dear. Described as an ‘old soul’, Stal was gifted with the ability to accurately intuit what was in the hearts of others and to tactfully share his wisdom with them. His acts of kindness and optimism have positively influenced the lives of countless people during his time on this earth, and those he touched will always remember the impact he had on their lives.

Stal’s father Alfonso Rocas and brother Pedro Rocas preceded him in death. Stal will be dearly missed by his wife of 19 yrs, Catina Rocas; sons: Marcus and Devin Rocas; mother Dina Rocas McMann; brothers Martin (Debbie) Rocas and Tony McClanahan; as well as many family members and friends.
