He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Asa and Dorothy McClain Harpold and Robert and Beulah Watkins Carney.

Ryan was born an Army Brat in Huntington. He then moved with his parents to Geilenkirchen, Germany, Heidelburg, Germany, Fort Devens, MA and Franklin, TN. In 1991 he and his parents moved back to Ripley, West Virginia.

He loved being around children and spending time with his cousins. His last evening was spent at dinner with his cousin, Ashley. The following morning, at breakfast, his very last comments were about how much fun he had at dinner.

Among his fondest memories were hiking in the mountains around Heidelburg, Skiing in New Hampshire and Vermont and camping all over New England.

Ryan with his blue eyes, red hair and cheerful personality, will be sorely missed by all that knew and loved him.

Ryan was a member of the Epworth United Methodist Church, and was a devoted follower of his God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
