Rocky was proceeded in death by his Mother, Ruby Rockford-Brainer and Brother Fritz Brainer.

Born in Penistone, England September 30, 1960 to an teen Mother who was unable to care for him or is rare disorder. He was placed in a government orphanage until 1974 when he was adopted by the Brainer's and started his new life in Farmington Hills, MI.

Sadly Rocky's life was very hard as due to his condition he spent most of his time in and out of medical facilities. When home Rocky developed the same love of music as his Father has. Some of his favorite groups were 'The Rolling Stones', 'Stone Temple Poilets','TheStone Roses' to name a few.

A Private Memorial Service for family and friends will be held at his Father's home in Milford, MI Friday, November 11,2016 Rocky spent many years trying to learn more about his biological family. He traced his family tree back to the Gawler Ranges of Southern Australia where he requested his final resting place be. Once a plot can be purchased and money can be saved to transport him there he will be finally at peace knowing he is one with his origin. The family has set up a Go Fund Me page to help with Rocky's final burial costs.
