After Ryan graduated from High School (2012), he worked in different odd jobs, enjoying the variety of life and the thrill of learning new trades. Ryan had mastered many skills but was thriving in the logistics field prior to his passing. He worked hand in hand with a lifelong family friend, Laura Barker. The two had an incredibly successful business with many pleased clients. Ryan enjoyed skateboarding, shooting pool, drawing and telling his hilarious jokes. Ryan loved spending his free time being TT’s “perfect Uncle Ryan”.
