Rocky McVaigh

July 6, 1953 — December 5, 2019

Rocky Lee McVaigh, 66, of Convoy passed away at 12:30 PM on December 05, 2019 at OSU Wexner Medical Center. He was born on July 06, 1953 in Springfield, Illinois to the late Robert and Shirley (Neisewander) McVaigh.

On August 29, 1998 he married the love of his life, Lori Ann Hoffman. Together, they shared many years of memories.

He and Lori were longtime members of St. Mark's Lutheran Church. Rocky enjoyed gardening and was a member of the Van Wert Elks Lodge 1197. He formerly coached the area youth in little league baseball and was a major supporter of Van Wert area swimming. Rocky's biggest enjoyment was being a devout, lifelong Cubs fan and a collector of Cubs memorabilia. He also cheered on the Bears and the OSU Buckeyes.

Rocky loved spending time with his family and grandchildren, and the lasting impression he made on his "Japaneses Daughters" is immeasurable.

Rocky is survived by his wife, Lori A. Hoffman-McVaigh of Convoy; sons: Robert McVaigh of Santa Rosa, CA; Matt McVaigh of Fort Wayne; daughters: Noelle (Matt Hoffman) McVaigh of Santa Rosa, CA; Margey (Lou) Cucinelli of Fort Wayne; Katie McVaigh of Convoy; brothers, Lonnie McVaigh; sister, Renee Lee; former spouse, Kathy Walter of Fort Wayne; and grandchildren: Porter, Stella, EJ, Gus, Mari and Vinnie.
