American child born with craniodiaphyseal dysplasia which distorted his face, making it grow twice normal size. He was the son of his mom, Rusty's second marriage, to a painting contractor and fellow biker. He was diagnosed at age two when X-rays showed irregularities in his skull. His medical prognosis was grim as he was not expected to live past seven. Teachers discouraged Rusty from putting him in school as other kids can be cruel in their curiosity, but his mom was supportive and made every effort to raise Rocky as normally as possible, with rough humor and total honesty.

Rocky graduated high school as an honors student, accepting his deformity and controlling his headaches with biofeedback.

He died at 16, on 10/04/1978. The movie "Mask" was made of his life with Cher as his mom and Eric Stolz playing the role of the remarkable boy.
