Rory was born on Oct. 15, 1977, at Council, Idaho. Rory grew up at Richland, attended school at Pine-Eagle High School and Stanfield. He later was a 1996 graduate of Cambridge High School where he played football, basketball, baseball and participated in high school rodeo.

A man who loved the outdoors, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, rodeo and entertaining his family and friends with the gift of gab. He was a very caring person who went the extra mile and knew no stranger.

He was loved by all who knew him. He touched many lives with his generosity, kindness of spirit, wise soul, sense of fun and an intelligent wit.

Rory worked many jobs from Texas to Idaho as a logger, lineman, equipment operator and fiber optic inspector. He also did telephone construction for Cambridge Telephone, was a guide for Cornucopia pack station and was currently working in the family business Brooks Wholesale.

His family and friends will dearly miss Rory.
