Rory Antley Sheffield was born a firecracker.
He was walking by 9 months and never stopped once he got vertical. He was the joy of his family and Daddy named him his “Little Warrior”. He loved firetrucks and would watch numerous videos of them going out on calls. One of his favorite videos built a firetruck from the tires up and he could name each part.
But he was more than that, he was my baby boy, he was my #4. Rory was Momma’s boy but Daddy’s warrior. He had so much love and life to give but tragedy took him too soon.
On August 17, 2016 our family, along with 3 other families, rented a home in Concan, Tx. We had planned a fun, relaxing vacation with friends. On Friday August 19th, after returning from the Frio River, everyone started getting ready for dinner. Rory, slipped away and decided to go swimming. Only he didn’t know how to swim and his lifejacket had been removed to dry.
