For the last few days my brother big Cliff been fighting for his life after having a heart attack. Today he lost his fight. Rest easy big bro and I’ll see you again one day.
The Herald-Tribune recapped a story they posted in 2010 regarding Rozier who was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Here is what they reported back in 2010:
He was a recovering crack addict who spent five years wandering the streets, sometimes carrying a pistol, often hearing voices. Voices telling him to jump in front of cars, confront police so they would shoot him, or jump from a building to see if he could fly.
After spending time in jail cells and psychiatric wards, Rozier lived in a Bradenton halfway house with nine other men.
Rozier said at the time:
Ain’t nobody heard from me in almost 10 years. I don’t go nowhere. I keep to myself. I want to stay here.
