    I just herd about Ryan , I’m so sorry for your loss. My Name is Angelica Ramos with Building Services of Chicago. I meet Ryan in 2008 on my first Generac convention. I Admire him for all his knowledge. I was looking forward to seeing him today and getting his knowledge.. He always was so patient explaining and taking his time to follow up with a phone and ask me what was my outcome, which really surprised how he remembered his dealers by Name. Mind you it’s a big convention . He will be missed we will keep you and him in our prayers.
