David Carlyle ‘Rocky’ Rocastle

David Rocastle, 1967-2001

Just 14 months after his retirement, in February 2001, Rocky’s family announced that David was suffering an aggressive form of cancer which attacks the immune system called non Hodgkins lymphoma. Before we even had time to track down our medical dictionaries and see exactly what that meant, he died in the early hours of March 31st, 2001. He was survived by wife Janet, son Ryan and daughters Melissa and Monique, as well as his mother Linda. Rocky`s father had died in 1972.

“If you selected a team of nice people, Dave Rocastle would be captain.”
