Ryan was the unofficial president of the Worldwide Sponge Bob fan club. He enjoyed spending time Up North, eating all the Oreos we could find, doing puzzles, swimming and riding on swings. Laughing at his sister was a favorite hobby and he was never without his tablet which he used to communicate with family, friends and healthcare staff. He loved his Dizzy Disc, jump rope, and any toy that would light up and make noise. Ryan was always happy and had a smile to give to everyone, touching lives wherever he went.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to the family.
Family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to the nurses and doctors of Froedtert, Waukesha Memorial and Lakeview Specialty Hospital for the care and compassion shown to Ryan and his loved ones.
