You can cut the holes a little bigger and insert strips of plywood or thin wood that are a few inches wider than the holes. You can use a screw for a handle. Screw through the existing sheetrock on each side of the holes to secure the plywood to the back of the rock. Then you can apply a patch piece of rock right to the strips of plywood with a couple screws. Tape, mud, sand, and you're good to go.
Just be sure to use short screws! I once nailed my pocket door in the open position by forgetting that it was there when I was running base during a remodel of my living room. The 2" nails I was shooting weren't the thing to use on the pocket wall. Doh!!!
