Dies in Hit-and-Run Hours

Denver police have released images of two “vehicles of interest,” but no suspects have yet been arrested. A vigil was held Friday night by Eric Elliott, Rocklin’s brother-in-law, who is deeply saddened by the loss. Some 60 people attended, including friends, family, and strangers.

Van Noort, Rocklin’s beloved wife, posted a heartbreaking message on Facebook detailing her husband’s accident. “I am completely broken. The pain is suffocating. My best friend, my soul mate, my new husband, was murdered and taken from me,” van Noort posted. “He spent the whole day by my side, holding my hand and judiciously making sure the doctors administered my transplant correctly. He left early in the evening after we both said ‘I love you, see you tomorrow,'” she detailed.

His wife Had Surgery For Leukemia

She continued, explaining, “She went home, took some cute kitty pictures of me, answered some emails, and then did the Logan thing: she decided to take her bike out on a dry, warm night to run a quick errand. She did.” All good: He was wearing his helmet, had his bike lights on, and used the sidewalks for safety at night.”

Logan’s wife added: “It wasn’t enough, someone decided to be in a hurry was more important than being safe, they hit him at the crosswalk and killed him immediately. The driver fled. She continued: ‘Please keep your loved ones nearby and the next time you’re on the road, consider slowing down a little more this time.”

Van urged people to get any information on the driver. She wrote: “The outpouring of love and support has been amazing, beautiful, amazing and the dedication to finding the driver unparalleled. PLEASE if you have any information message me or contact the Denver Police Department. No details it’s too small”.

The family organized a vigil for Rocklin on Friday, led by Elliott, the brother-in-law who has been stationed at the crossroads for the past 22 days with a banner calling for witnesses and justice. “The outpouring of support from the community has been pretty overwhelming,” a broken Elliot told KDVR. “It’s been really hard. My faith in humanity has been restored. People walk by with hot chocolate. People wave and honk, complete strangers stop and share their stories of loss,” he said.

Denver police have a photo of a car they’ve identified as a “vehicle of interest,” but it’s a bit blurry. Currently, a ghost bike is present in Rocklin’s honor. Along with a photo of the man, it consists of handwritten love notes and flowers entangled in the wheels. Rocklin’s wife, van Noort, who suffers from acute myeloid leukemia and underwent stem cell transplant surgery the day before the accident, has created a GoFundMe page and raised more than $88,000 of the $60,000 goal.

There is also a reward for information leading to an arrest.
