Biography
Shamrock and his brothers were outsiders in this community, coming from a poor background and speaking in a Southern accent, they continued to cause trouble and get into fights and began using drugs. Nance, who had fought in the Vietnam War, became a member of the local fire department and also found work in roofing and upholstery. Shamrock was not as involved with drugs as his brothers, such as his brother Richie, who enjoyed smoking marijuana and eventually using heroin intravenously, but who also played football. He bounced around between several group homes before being placed in Bob Shamrock's Boys' Home at age 14, in Susanville, California where he turned his life around.
Fighter Trivia
Together they have four children: Ryan Robert , Connor Kenneth , Sean Garret and one daughter, Fallon Marie . In August 2012, Shamrock was investigated for allegedly assaulting a woman at a mall in Modesto, California. No charges were filed as the Modesto police determined Shamrock acted in self defense.
