So sad to hear of Rory's passing. Rory was a truly unique person, funny, energetic, fun to be with, and he had one of the best voices of anyone I've ever met. I didn't know he was a marine, but that's impressive. In high school Rory and I and some other guys entered a talent show and Rory sang songs from the 50s while we backed him up. He was great, and wowed the audience. We lost touch after high school unfortunately. But Rory was the kind of guy who you don't forget. RIP Rory.

I am Rory's first cousin....we were two of the fifty-seven grandchildren of Will and Mary Wadle. This is stated because, in our youth, extended family was a large part of our social life...visiting family on Sundays, large family gatherings at our grandparents' house over the years of our youth and then adulthood, an so on. Rory was fourteen years my junior so we were not close in childhood. I left for the Navy when he was not yet age five.
