Ryan graduated from East Carteret High School in 1997.  He worked on the water for most of his life.  Other than his family, he loved Duke Blue Devil Basketball, Atlanta Braves Baseball, App State Football, and being out on the water in Carteret County.  He also had a good heart, sweet demeanor, and loved spending time with his family.  His last few acts on Earth were heroic – helping others.
