If there is one word that describes the life of my Uncle Bud, it would be service. From my earliest memories when he lived with and cared for his mother, my great grandmother, to helping and driving my grandmother on my father’s side of the family, to his dedication to St John’s and all the people served by his church, his was a life dedicated to the needs of others.

My uncle walked in God’s light, he saw and respected the dignity of life in everyone he met. He lived his life in a humle way, enjoying all the good things God offeres, birthday from flowers to martini’s, from childrens birthday parties to the gathering of the Pabst dinners and luncheons. He enjoyed family gatherings and we will miss his blessings before a meal, the funny jokes or trivia he shared, the experiences of the people he met on the street or the many people in his life. We will miss the personal notes in birthday and christmas cards, and those bright blue eyes. He was such a blessing in so many lives, he was a popular and loved man, A true servant of God.

We’ve known David Ryan for almost 40 years.. He has seen all of my kids grow up and has been “Uncle Bud” to all of us. He was an eloquent speaker, a very caring man and had a great sense of humor. We will miss him more than words can say but are happy for him that he is now with God.
