We, Ryan's family, thank you for your kind words. Thank you for loving and enriching Ryan's life. We were deeply moved by the outpouring of love from all of you. We will miss him so deeply, but will try every day to celebrate him instead of mourn him.

We don’t have one specific memory that stands out, but rather, a collection of memories detailing Ryan’s zest for life, care for people, and ability to improve anyone’s mood within minutes. From cookouts and bonfires, shooting off fireworks, and sneaking in abandoned buildings when we had nothing better to do as teenagers, to having you as part of our wedding day... so many years of our lives included our friendship with you. The tears haven’t stopped flowing since we found out Saturday night. They probably won’t for a long time. The deep hole left in so many people’s hearts is just a testament to the person you are. We love you, Ryan. You will be missed tremendously by so many, but we will see you again.

Luke, Megan, and the 4 kiddos

Ryan I miss you. So so much

Ryan used to take me home from school. He got out earlier than I before I had a car and he’d wait in the parking lot and take me home in his big ass yeeyee truck lol. We were driving home one day and he looks at me dead in the face and say you know what I’m glad you’re part of this family man. Rusty is a good guy I’m glad he adopted you and brought you in.

My cousin was seriously the nicest person. With the greatest heart

Ryan was a very special man. We met through Matt Smith and my daughter Chloe. I've only known him for a few years but he's something special! He will be missed by many people.. young and old.

We all make good turns and bad turns, but this young man's good turns were 10 fold of any bad ones he made. I have some really good memories of good turns he made helping me in Ohio as well as in Florida. I never had to ask for his help either. I know he was loved and will really be missed.

I grew up with Ryan, always staying with him and his family when we were little kids. We were always up to something too, mischief was kind of our thing. We hadn't seen each other in quite some time but started to reconnect because of a chance run in at a restaurant. We swapped old stories and laughed about our days as youth. He will be sorely missed, that infectious smile and can do attitude will always be remembered. We all will miss you Ryan!

I’m heartbroken by this sad news. Ryan stood out as an energetic fireman during his interview at Pleasant Township Fire Department. He was always hanging around the FD and rarely missed a training. His smile and demeanor were infectious as was his excitement for the job. I’m saddened but thankful that I had the great opportunity to know him.
My sincerest condolences to his family for your loss. May you find peace.

I'm blessed to have known Ryan and blessed to call him my friend. He was vibrant and always knew how to make everyone smile even when having a bad day. If anyone who was in Ryan's presence walked away from him upset or angry, it's because they didn't get a chance to talk to Ryan and they missed their opportunity to be blessed by him.
Ryan was younger than I by about 11 years and he taught me things even with him being younger. The world lost one of the best people I know.
I'm a better person for having known you Ryan and I was fortunate to have that opportunity.
I love ya dude
To Ryan's family:
I'm deeply saddened and I'm very sorry for your loss. He truly was loved by all.
