Rory was born October 13, 1960 in Riverton Wyoming and attended St. Margaret’s Catholic School where he was an altar boy. He relocated to Casper with his family and graduated from Kelly Walsh High School. He was an avid sportsman and excelled at every sport he played. His true passion was wrestling. He attended the University of Wyoming on a wrestling scholarship.
After college, he worked in the oilfield, and with cattle on the Arapaho ranch before returning to Riverton Wyoming where he married the love of his life, Yvette Blackburn. He picked up a tradesman’s career as a handyman and landscaper. He was a fixer and tinkerer of everything that you put in front of him. In his spare time, he was a prankster and a trickster, notorious for giving out nick names and he never met a stranger. Rory lit up the room upon entry with his charismatic personality and tender heart. He enjoyed spending time with his huge extended family, especially his grandchildren. You would often find him out fishing with all the kids.
Rory’s sudden passing is a devastating loss to his family and friends. He will be forever loved and forever missed, but never forgotten. He will be laid to rest beside his wife Yvette at the Blackburn cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to help cover funeral costs can be made to Rory Lynch C/O Davis Funeral home, 2203 W.
