Magic 106.1, Your Community Station, was saddened to report that on Saturday Evening, February 4th, 2017 our beloved family member “Papa Rock” transitioned to the afterlife. I ask that you give his loved ones and family members your prayers and respect during this difficult time. As many grieve the loss of a Pensacola/ Magic 106.1 Legend, please remember that when the sun sets on a beloved family member it may seem as if the family will walk in darkness in days to come. God… is the father of the fatherless and husband and may his strong arms carry and protect you and your children now and ever more.
Mrs. Carrie Rivers, though your husband is gone, he still lives in your heart and in the children that he has left you. Cherish and treasure those memories for they will give you strength to carry on. My deepest sympathies for the loss of your husband and our Family Member at Magic 106.1
So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
Grover “Papa Rock” Rivers
March 16-1932 -February 4, 2017
