Ryan W. Aumiller
Utica
Mr. Ryan W. Aumiller, age 45, of Utica, a cherished husband, father, brother, nephew, uncle, and friend, passed away unexpectedly Friday, March 9, 2012, in the privacy of his home. Ryan was born Ryan Willis Aumiller on June 14, 1966, in Albany, NY, the youngest child of the late Richard and Gloria (Cappallo) Aumiller. Ryan attended school in Liverpool, NY, graduating from Liverpool High School in 1984 and going on to SUNY College Oswego where he received a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design. After working a short while in Graphic Design, Ryan's gifted technical skills led him to start his own company, Computer and Business, Inc., which later became Ryan Macintosh Solutions. As the economy began to limit his business opportunities, Ryan accepted a position at the Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute including the Pratt School of Art working as a computer technician; a position he loved. However, little did Ryan know that renting an apartment above Pizza Heaven in 1992 would lead him to find his own Heaven on Earth; his family. What started as a friendship, would, with one subtle hand hold at the movies, forge an eternal bond with the woman who would become his loved and cherished wife of over 16 years, Donna M Coppola. Ryan and Donna shared a love, devotion, and passion that anyone would aspire to find, yet so few do. In 2001, Ryan and Donna were again blessed with their greatest gift, their daughter Danielle. Ryan so loved his "favorite girl" Danielle and shared every interest and adventure with her, and especially loved their "Father/Daughter" Tuesday Dates. As a young boy, Ryan's extraordinary artistic ability and creativity stood out, in his sketching, his singing, his school projects, etc., he was magically creative and gifted with both his hands and mind. As technology advanced, so did Ryan's ability to express himself as the digital era would provide Ryan an ideal median to express his heart and soul through music. With no formal music training and only as a hobby, Ryan demonstrated his talent as a singer, guitarist, and musician, composing and performing several original songs to be treasured by his family. Ryan was quick-witted, fun-loving, and always had a smile upon his face. Ryan"s repertoire of impersonations and sense of humor made every family gathering a complete joy. Ryan had the unique ability to diffuse stress with laughter and bring out a smile in the most difficult of situations. In addition to music, Ryan's many hobbies and passions included fishing, jet-skiing, enjoying local music, supporting numerous local charities, and spending time at his family cottage on the Great Sacandaga Reservoir in the foothills of the Adirondacks, but most of all being with his wife, daughter, family, and friends. He was a parishioner of St. Mark's Church. Remaining to forever cherish Ryans memory are his wife, Donna; and his precious daughter, Danielle; his brother and sister-in-law, Richard W., Jr. and Mary Aumiller of Clarence Center, NY; his sister and brother-in-law, Robyn and Greg Low of N. Syracuse; his maternal grandmother, Virginia Cappallo; nieces and nephews, Jon, Kevin, Cameron; Alexandra "Allie"; and Joey; aunts and uncles, Sharyn Cappallo, Kevin and Linda Cappallo, and Renee and Bruce Randall; great-aunts, great-uncles, and cousins; father-in-law, Philip C. Coppola; in-laws, Lori and Joseph White, and Steve Coppola; aunts and uncles of the Coppola family, especially acknowledging Virginia Coppola and her daughter Tina; and the many wonderful friends with whom Ryan was blessed throughout his life. Ryan was predeceased by his mother and father Gloria and Richard Aumiller; his maternal grandfather, Willis Cappallo; paternal grandparents, Walt and Connie Aumiller; and his mother-in-law, Dorothy A. Coppola. Though tragically short, Ryan leaves a legacy of life, love and devotion, and will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends. Ryan will never be forgotten as his kindness, love, and friendship touched the lives of all those who have been blessed to know him. God Bless you Ryan as you are together again with your mom and dad. We love you. The family would like to acknowledge the dedication of the Deerfield Volunteer Rescue Team; Donnas sister, Lori for her valiant efforts; the St. Elizabeth Medical Center for their sympathy, and comfort; and Sue Cooper for her support and compassion. Donna wishes to thank her family and all the many wonderful friends for their support, love, and devotion. Visitation will be held Tuesday from 3:00-6:00 at St. Marks Church, 440 Keyes Road, North Utica. Ryans funeral service and Celebration of Life will commence on Tuesday evening at 6:00 at St. Mark's Church immediately upon conclusion of visitation, where his Mass of Christian Burial will be offered. In lieu of floral offerings, expressions of sympathy in the form of donations may be made to the family to enable the establishment of a scholarship fund for Ryans daughter; envelopes will be available at the service. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Eannace Funeral Home, Inc., 932 South St., corner of Hammond Ave. Online tributes at www.EannaceFuneralHome.com
