My Story

Rory had interesting hobbies throughout life. His favorite hobbies were playing video games, baseball, and listening to music. Rory had lots of friends and he had lots of family. He was giving and he was a great uncle to all of his nieces and nephews. Rory was a very fashionable man. Once he got his job he had the newest clothes and shoes out. He had a great little and big brother and a loving son. Rory was self sufficient, he was strong because he was able to endure the things he went through. His feelings for his family and our concern for him caused him to hide his pain. He did not want to be a burden to his family. Rory loved to play pool and he was very good at it. Rory loved to share talents with his family, teaching them chess and working on football positions with his two older brothers. In Rory's last few weeks his behavior changed very slightly but they were regained and he seemed more alive than before. Rory passed away on April 21, 2007. We use Rory's behaviors, likes and dislikes, personality, and hobbies in the present day because Rory is not gone--physically yes--but spiritually, not even close. Rory is remembered daily.
