Ryan James Wilder

Ryan James Wilder, 33, of Santa Cruz/Salinas, was received into God's loving arms on Sunday, July 14, 2013.

Ryan was born August 29, 1979 at Tahoe Forest Hospital in Truckee, to Tina and Randy Wilder. He grew up in Salinas but made Santa Cruz his home. Ryan had many interests. He was an avid fan of anything that moved fast, from motorcycles to Nascar to RC cars and loved the A's and the Raiders. Ryan was also a gifted artist and had a special talent in the kitchen or at the BBQ. What he loved most was spending time with his family and friends listening to music. Ryan also enjoyed his work in all aspects of the construction trades and was employed as a plumber for many years.

His beautiful smile and great hugs will be greatly missed and forever remembered by his loving family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his dad, Freddie Jimenez; his grandma, Norma; and his three grandpa Bobs, Bob Nuckolls, Bob Wilder and Bob Humphrey.

He is survived by his mother, Tina Jimenez; brothers, Freddie Jimenez and Dominic Cortes; sister, Jessica D'Arrigo; father, Randy Wilder; grandmother, Lola "Nanie" Nuckolls; grandparents, Fernando and Sophia Jimenez; aunts, Laura (Greg) De Mars, Elsa (Monico) Aldape, Jennifer Jimenez; uncles, Keith(Therese) Humphrey, Fernie (Anita) Jimenez, Eric (Maryanne) Jimenez; many loving cousins and niece, Mia D'Arrigo-Ybarra.

Many thanks to Ryan's extended family, and Peggy Verdugo, for loving him like we do.
