Thomas Fortune Ryan


1947 - 2011 Obituary Condolences
"Forty" Ryan passed away Monday, May 16, 2011, in Roswell. He was a native New Mexican, born in Carrizozo on Sept. 23, 1947, to Thomas F. Ryan III and Henrietta Agustina Neys Ryan.
Forty was a character and everyone who loved him has a favorite "Forty" story. He left a permanent imprint on the hearts of those who loved him. He loved and cherished deeply and if you were touched by him you were changed for the better. Forty possessed the innocence that every human strives for and the heart as big as a shining star.

Ryan V, of Las Cruces; sister Victoria Ryan, of Patzcuaro, Michoacan, Mexico; sister Caroline Crawford, of Alamogordo; sister Irene Denae, of Prescott, Ariz.; and nieces and nephews: Autumn Michelle Ryan, of Santa Fe, Thia Denae, of Tucson, Ariz., Naiz Denae, of Santa Fe, Alicia Applin, of San Francisco, and Carolina Gaskins, of Carrizozo.
