Rory Cedric Hoover
Rory Cedric Hoover, 26, passed away May 17 at the KU Medical Center in Kansas City.
He was born Sept. 20, 1984, in Hays, the son of Randall and Dora (Harbers) Hoover. He grew up in Larned, and had lived in Great Bend for the past 10 years.
Survivors include his daughter, ‘My Little Angel,’ Hannah Ellen Riggs; his parents, Randall and Dora Hoover, Great Bend; a sister, Amy Turner, and husband, Marshall Turner II; a niece, Andrea Turner; two nephews, Garrett and Carter Turner, Hays; grandmothers, Wilma Hoover, Hays; and Erma Soodsma, Phillipsburg; and numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, and other relatives. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Bruce Hoover, and his maternal grandfather, Albert Harbers.
Cremation has taken place, and Rory will return to Great Bend. No formal funeral or memorial arrangements have been made per Rory’s wishes. His family would ask that all who knew him remember him in their own way. He knew and cared, and loved so many.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the Hannah Ellen Riggs education fund, in care of Charter Funerals, 2115 Washington, Great Bend, KS, 67530.
