Shannon Rockford "Rocky" Bingham
July 29, 1959 - March 13, 2021
Rocky Bingham, age 60 of Briceville, passed away Saturday, March 13, 2021 at Tennova North Hospital. Rocky loved the Lord. He loved life. He loved his family so much and especially loved spending time with his grandkids; they were his pride and joy. He was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. He always had a smile on his face even through his toughest times and could always make others smile. After his leg amputation, he would laugh and make jokes saying "You know I'm on my last leg." He never let his sickness get him down. He always lit up the room with his bubbly personality. He loved kidding and joking with people. Rocky would pick a total stranger and tell them they dropped their pocket and they would look around, laugh, and say "You got me." Rocky was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing, and four wheeling. He loved going to Windrock and riding the obstacle courses. His favorite thing to do was to work with his tractor. Rocky was retired 12 years from Boeing Oak Ridge, where he made several suggestions to save the company money and won multiple awards. Rocky was retired 15 years from Premium Coal Company in Briceville, Tennessee, where he owned his own coal truck and was a diesel mechanic. Rocky is preceded in death by his father Hurles Bingham, and his brother: James "Jimmy" Bingham.
