Ryan Kirk, son, brother, friend, and humanitarian, left this world on Dec. 27, 2013 at age 36. Ryan was a man with an adventurous spirit who lived simply, felt deeply, and gave generously to those in need.
He took extreme pride in his loving family, including his mother, Jan, father, Don, brothers, Tim and Kevin, and best friend, Carol.
He was a man who knew defeat, knew suffering, knew struggle and, as such, had an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that filled him with compassion, gentleness, and a deep-loving concern for others.
His legacy is defined by the people he cared for and the community he served.
