My most poignant memory of Ryan is the two of us riding atop a double decker trolley on a tour of Manhattan. It was early spring and freezing. He loved exploring the city, walking the neighborhoods and eating at unusual restaurants. He wore his Dad’s boots and jacket so proudly even though they both were a mile too big. His deep love for his family is remarkable and will never be forgotten. Aunt Mo

We didn’t have any candles for my birthday cake, so Ryan stuck a paper plate in it and set it on fire (photo evidence included). He loved celebrating important life events. The last time I saw him was on my graduation day, May 3rd. The ceremony was cancelled, but he and I drove around to wave at family members and dropped off little bottles of champagne to celebrate (at a distance). I wish I had joined him for Mother’s Day, when he dropped off steak dinner for the mothers (and grandmothers) in our family. It was important to Ryan that people felt supported and cared for, especially his family. He will be so greatly missed ❤️

So many, many memories, one particular was when Hala cut his hair for the first time, they were 12. He was her first client!!! All that group growing up and hanging out through Jr and High school.
Our soccer trips, thinking he was a big man playing euchre with the adults.
We love you and miss knowing you are no longer a phone call away.
RIP Ryan.
