Blizzard can’t stop man’s daily plunge into ocean in memory of sons 

By Eric "Hollywood" Davis STAR 94.5

Even a blizzard can’t stop Chucky’s Fight against addiction.

The New Hampshire man who set out to fight addiction after his lifelong struggle with it and the loss of his two sons to overdoses jumped into the Hampton River during a blizzard Tuesday.

Chucky Rosa jumps into a body of water every day — even on the coldest days and during blizzards.

He takes that moment every day to cleanse and remember.

“They were really good boys, very solid, solid people — tough as nails, physically, mentally. That just tells you about drug addiction. If it can take them, trust me, it can take anybody.”

When his sons died, they were cremated. Their ashes were spread in the ocean, so he returns there every day to visit them.
