Ryan grew up in his family’s business, Tune Trucking in Patoka learning the value of hard work and dedication by watching his father and grandfather from an early age. Ryan loved his job and was proud to continue in his family’s footsteps, by offering his best to the customers he served. He appreciated the peace and solitude of country life, enjoying time hunting, camping, farming, and washing and polishing his semi. Ryan had an outgoing personality, never met a stranger and could strike up a conversation with anyone. Above all, he was a loving and supportive husband and dad who lived each day for his children. Ryan loved to be home with his family every moment he wasn’t at the family business. Ryan will forever be remembered for his loyalty, generosity, hard work ethic, and the immense love he had for his family.
