He enjoyed being outdoors; specifically hunting and fishing. Ryan had traveled the country hunting and loved sharing his stories. Most importantly, Ryan cherished spending time with his niece and nephews: Isabelle Ryan, Jonah and Aiden, whom he loved more than anything. Ryan loved being the one to always buy them noisy toys. He was also a Cleveland Browns and Indians fan. Ryan was a tinkerer and enjoyed fixing things. Above all else, Ryan was a people pleaser and made it his purpose to go out of his way to help others and make them smile. He was always the first one to volunteer whenever it came to putting together playgrounds, playhouses, etc. Earlier this year, Ryan met what he considered to be the love of his life. In Ryan’s eyes, Lori exemplified true love and they were in the process of eagerly planning the rest of their lives together.
