Mount Airy Mayor Patrick Rockinberg Passes Away

UPDATE: Announcement from the Town of Mount Airy website: Mayor Patrick Rockinberg Announcement

It is with great sadness that the Town of Mount Airy announces the passing of Mayor Patrick Rockinberg.

Mayor Pat, as he was so affectionately known to Town citizens, colleagues, friends and staff, led the Town for the past 11 years as its Mayor and Chief Executive Officer. He was elected Mayor four times by the citizens of the Town.

His vibrant, positive personality, as well as his leadership, will be long remembered and greatly missed. The Town passes along its deep condolences to Mayor Pat’s family and friends.

We ask the community to please respect the privacy of the family, during this time of mourning. The Town will be working with his family to provide additional details at their discretion.
