He was one of the nicest people I have met in a long time. I trooped with him earlier this year at an event with a pops orchestra.

I was shocked when I had found out he had ran into health issues shortly thereafter.

I wish I had known him longer. Even having known him for just a short little bit, there was no mistaking him as a person who beamed happiness and made any time just that much more entertaining.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I'd ordered a 10th Doctor sonic screw driver a while back from thinkgeek and its been backordered for ever... I just got a UPS notification that it was delivered today.

For some reason, it makes the prop have a bit more meaning now.

(For those who do not know, Ryan is one of the best 10th Doctor costumers there will ever be.)

I'm at a loss for words. I only just met Ryan this year at the Evansville Orchestra event but I knew how well loved he was in the area even before we trooped together, and he was just as awesome as all the stories I'd heard. I'm sorry I won't be able to troop with him again but I'm so glad I got to meet him.

I know he was in his biker scout armor this night but here is a photo with him after an event in 2010 in Owesnboro, Kentucky. This was the last time I talk to Ryan face to face but we chatted via e-mail and facebook every few days when he was not on the road.

Last time I saw him was running into him in the Cool Springs Walmart early this year when he and Lo Cash were stocking up their tour bus to go to Florida for a few tour stops. He'd seen the RL hoodie I was wearing and ran over to see who it was, as he said 'has to be someone I know, people just dont go around wearing RL hoodies for no reason'. lol

They were in a hurry yet he still took the time to chat with us for a while. I wish I would have known that would be the last time I'd see him.

For those that could not attend but send your condolences, I thought I would post to let you know that the visitation was very nice (yet heartbreaking) and well attended by both the 501st and RL. Many left small action figures or other star wars related items as a tribute to Ryan and a keepsake for Essay and his family. Included was a biker scout playing the fiddle that a 501st member had made. The 501st provided an honor guard and a guitar for guests to sign in memory of Ryan. There were pictures of Ryan everywhere that displayed a life well lived. There were countless stories of how Ryan had touched and impacted the lives of others. I can tell you that there wasn't a dry eye in the place as we remember Ryan and the blessing he was to us.
