Ryan will be fondly remembered for his generous nature, his contagious laughter, and his strength and courage. He was an avid animal lover, and will be missed by his companions Koolio and Romeo, and new friend, a baby bull named George.
From an email:
He served our country proudly. He suffered greatly from the loss he experienced and witnessed in Iraq... Which ultimately led to his death.
