[SDCPJ] Rest in Peace Rocky Neptun 10/11/47-12/7/13

Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that I write to let you know that one of our peace, and social justice community members, Lyle "Rocky" Neptun was murdered in his home in Tijuana on December 7th.  I am told that there is a suspect in custody.  

A funeral Mass was held this morning, but there was not time to get the word out as most of us only learned about this yesterday.  Friends of Rocky's in the community are discussing holding a Celebration of Life in January.  We will let you know the details when the plans are firm.

Rocky was involved throughout the years with a number of organizations and causes, including the San Diego Quaker Meeting, Peace Resource Center, the Housing Coalition, Activist San Diego, the Green Party, homeless issues, gay rights issues and more. He was also a journalist/writer with strong opinions on these issues.  This is truly a loss to his family and friends, as well as our community.  Even if you did not personally know Rocky, he was out there fighting for you and your rights.

The violent death of a friend and comrade is particularly difficult to comprehend, but it does call to us to renew our efforts for a peaceful, nonviolent and just world which is what Rocky wanted and for which he worked and dedicated his life.

His ashes will be spread in the ocean of his beloved Rosarito Beach.  He asked that who wished to donate in his memory do so to the Humane Society or to perform one hour of community service.

Rest in Peace Rocky.  We love you.

In peace,

Carol Jahnkow
Director Emerita
Peace Resource Center of San Diego
