Mr. Ronald Ryback, the son of Michael (Jake) and Velma Ryback, left this life on December 29, 2012. Ron was born in Boston, MA, August 28, 1938, and grew up in Lynn, MA.
He worked for the Department of Defense at Hanscom Air Force Base for over 30 years and also served his country in the United States Marine Corps.
He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed playing golf with his friends at Palm Gardens Golf Course. He loved all animals (especially Max, Jake, Pumpkin, and PJ) and volunteered his time and effort towards their cause. Most of all he liked a good laugh.
He married Darlene, the love of his life, in 1986 and they retired to Florida in 1993. He leaves a much loved sister, Marcia Manz of Palm Bay, FL. He was predeceased by his twin brother, Robert.
I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one, I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when day is done. I'd like to leave an echo...whispering softly down the ways of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I'd like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun of happy memories that I leave behind when day is done.
In lieu of flowers, please send contributions to South Brevard Animal Center, 5100 W. Eau Gallie Blvd., Melbourne, FL 32934 or any wildlife or animal shelter.
