As a good friend of Ivan's, I spent a fair amount of time during my formative teenage years around the Ryan home. Since I lost my Dad at 10, I was always a little jealous of Ivan and Brett, who got to grow up with their dad. I think Mr. Ryan, as I knew him, seemed to be genuinely concerned about my well being. He sometimes asked the hard questions, that I had to think about before answering. I remember him being one to be respected, somewhat strict concerning his boy's behavior but he also knew that boys will be boys and let the small stuff go. He used to tell us about his adventures as a young man, especially his Navy experiences. I believe he had a positive influence on me when I needed it most and it was an honor to know such a strong, self-made, inventive , patriot as Mr. Ryan.

Pat, We were so sorry to hear of your loss. Betty has been under the weather so we were unable to visit with you. Our deepest sympathy

Ivan, Sharron, Denise, Brett and families, I am sorry for your loss. I am remembering all the fun years hanging out at "Bud and Anita`s" also the long ride to Cumberland Lake with Bud honking the horn at every single driveway, side street or crossroads because "I don`t want some idiot pulling out and hitting the new car!" And Anita telling him he was overreacting! Also all the fun on all your houseboats and all the fun riding horses and all the fun years hanging out at the house on Arnoldtown.

My heart is filled with wonderful memories and fun filled days. My Mother & Dad made everyday exciting, hardly a dull moment growing up. They both worked hard with the business and we played hard with Grandma watching over us. One favorite memory is the tree house that Dad made which is still in the back yard of the house we grew up in. The fun with all the Rayhill's, Fluhr's Ferguson's, Bracey's, Rigg's, C. Otto, W. Deer, G. Jone's and the Snider's. (Oh if the trees in the woods could talk) The horse back riding, the winter sleigh riding with bon fires, all the action packed weekend's and summers at Lake Cumberland. I'll call those friends our Lake Families. (Dad was called Dock Strutter). Dr. Hodge and family. The Schlatter's, the McDonnald's, the Sloan's and the Bolen's If I left anyone out I'm so sorry. What great times and parent's we all had. What I wouldnt give for another day on Arnoldtown Road or a week at the lake, those days never got old. I'm so thankful for such great times and good life long friends. We may not see one another often enough but the memories stay forever. No one can ever take that away. I think my Mother and all us kids had the best part of Dad.

Bud and Pat shared 15 years of life, laughter and love. He will be missed.
