I am shocked and saddened by the news of the death of Rory Richmond on August 22, 2020. He was a fellow NorCal KCBS BBQ judge and organizer of the Clayton BBQ Cookoff. He was one of the good ones! RIP, Rory, you will be sorely missed.


Here's a link to a local newspaper article about his life.

Here's a link to my write-up and photos from the last great Clayton BBQ Cookoff. I'm guessing that Rory would want us to focus on what a fun day we had the last time we all got together, not his obit.

It's always sad when someone so dedicated and enthusiastic, passes so suddenly. Reading the links you posted Chris, Rory was well thought of, did so much for his community. May be rest in peace.

What a shock. I only met him a few times but was always so friendly and welcoming. He will be missed for sure.
