I remember that it was just last semester when I first met him and he was a amazing person

I remember last year he was in my math 4 class with Mrs. Carley. He always came into the class with a smile and a laugh because he liked us to call him “Doug”. I remember all the laughs and smiles he shared and never once looked upside down. We weren’t close but we had memories. and it truly saddened me when I was working at NHRMC and heard what happened because my mom called me. I broke down in tears, even though we weren’t close, i still felt like apart of me knew him deeper than i did. We love you Ryan.

I was blessed to meet Ryan but one time - thanks to his friend DJ. Ryan drove DJ out to our farm to feed our horses. I will never forget the sincere kindness that exuded from this young man. So sincere, so real, so candid .. and that was only a short glance we shared ... my heart breaks open for all those that love him ... his time on earth was much too short - but that does not change the impact he had on so many people, the impact he had on this world. Ryan is a bright Soul. He will forever shine through the hearts of so many that he touched. My prayers for his family, for his friends, for DJ .. and for all that are mourning such a tragedy.

He will be greatly missed. He was a joy to be around and always made working at chic-fil-a a blast.

My prayers are with your family for strength and comfort. A life cut too short but what a compassionate decision he made in his life to be an organ donor. His life will love on in someone else. Peace be with you all.

Im so sorry for the lost of Ryan.. He is my neighbor and will miss him dearly coming by on the way in from work waving. May God bless the family.

My son Darrel was a friend of Ryan's. Unfortunately I didn't know him, but have felt as though I did. It's unimaginable the pain and loss that you as parents are going through. I've been on my knees praying for you and also praying that not only will he live on in donors, but that he saves the lives of friends who will now always remember the importance of wearing seat belts. Please allow God and His words to help bring you peace and comfort. You will be in my prayers in the difficult days, weeks and months ahead. ♥️

Ryan was a very special part of our family. He and Ethan spent lots of time together. If Ryan wasn’t at home, he was at our house. Every single time he came over, he gave me a big hug. He gave the best hugs! My prayers for God’s comfort and peace for family and friends. He touched the lives of many, many people..especially me. I love you Ryan. Rest easy in God’s Kingdom.

Ryan will be surely missed and I hate that he was taken from his family so abruptly. I hope they can find some comfort in knowing as long as their love for him in their hearts never fades his spirit lives on. Rest in Peace Ryan



Marcia DeRush posted on 2/4/20

I’ll remember Ryan in his childhood days coming around during family visits and all the cousins playing outside at my moms (his great grandma, always called “nanny”). He was always quiet inside but had lots of smiles. Such a sweet nephew to this great Aunt. I’m so proud of the young man he became!
