Obituary of Michael Kevin Ryan
Michael Kevin Ryan, age 59, died on Sunday, October 20, 2019. He was born on January 11, 1960 in Albany, New York to Neil and Emilie “Lee” Ryan.
He was an avid outdoorsman whose passion was trapshooting. He won the title of 2019 New York State Handicap Champion. He cultivated his passion of trapshooting in his children through his teaching and mentoring. To the core, he was a family man who was proud of his children, always making sure everyone was taken care of, including the dogs. He never missed any of his kids’ games and activities. Mike will be remembered for his work ethic as a hard working man and a master craftsman who could build or fix anything. He cultivated family history by saving letters, artifacts and memorabilia. Tender-hearted and sentimental, Mike would give you the shirt off his back. Mike graduated from Bethlehem Central High School and attended University of Wyoming. He was a partner in Whitney & Ryan General Contractors.
He is survived by his wife, Jen (Headley/Herrington) Ryan; children, Samantha and Patrick Ryan; step-children, Courtney and Reid K. Herrington; brothers, Mathew F. Ryan, Timothy Ryan, and Sean P. Ryan.
