George Ryan, Jr.

AGE: 51 • Eustis, FL

George Ryan Jr., 51, of Eustis FL, passed away at home. Born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, he moved to Eustis in 1996 from Rahway, NJ. He was Head Dispatcher at Dura Stress Concrete of Leesburg, FL. Mr. Ryan was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church, the Florida Sheriff's Association, and the NY Jets Fan Club. He was extremely patriotic; he loved all creatures and was a prolific writer, as demonstrated here: "The wind chimes dancing in the breeze, the notes are struck at random command of the wind, sometimes sing a song, so hauntingly familiar, but have never been played before, and will never be played again."

He is survived by his wife, Joanne C. Ryan of Eustis, FL; parents, George Sr. and Josephine Ryan of Rahway, NJ; 3 brothers, Michael Ryan of Queens, NY, Jim Ryan of Middletown, NJ, and Gerard Ryan of Tinton Falls, NJ; 6 nieces and nephews and many friends.

A memorial service will be held in Rahway, NJ with time and location forthcoming. It will be posted on Facebook. Online Guestbook available at Arrangements by Harden/Pauli Funeral Home, Eustis, FL.

I read your mass card again today...your mom sent me a laminated copy...and I see the special connection with the prayer on the card..."Grieve not...nor speak of me with tears...but laugh and talk of me as though I were beside you. I love you so...'TWAS Heaven with you
Much love from all of your Family and Friends who came together and read your powerful words and were moved! We got to know you a little bit more and are grateful for that. PS Joanne is wonderful and everyone embraced her and showed her much love.

Our heartfelt sympathy for Aunt Rita, Uncle George, Michael, Jim, Gerard, and Joanne. Although I haven’t see George in many years, I have such fond memories from our childhood. We all loved when the CT cousins & the NJ cousins would get together. I will cherish those memories and the way George always made me laugh. God Bless you all. Love Cousin Mary

Many friends will come and go in our lives. Many will touch our lives and many will just leave us with us smiling. George was both. He made you laugh helped to get through those boring high school days. St. Marys was fun George...thanks. You will be truly missed and a part of my heart too. Thanks for all you gave me. Barry

We were close like brothers for a long time, the memories from grammar school, High school and after will forever warm my heart. I feel like part of you is in me, embedded in my personality! I feel comfort in knowing that you will be there with a smile and something witty to say when my time comes. Until then my dear wonderful friend, I will cherish the memories... God Bless

Aunt Rita, Uncle George, Michael, Jimmy, Gerard, Katie and Amy and children ~ I am so sorry for the passing of George and the crush to your family. I can not imagine the past week for all of you. We have been thinking of you every day and most of the moments of the day during this horrific time for you all. I quess are family is so big and through the years we do not get or stay close to all. I know I felt so quilty that I should have known my cousin more. I do remember sitting on blankets watching the soccer games years and years ago. I went out to George's facebook and printed pictures of George and his wife and all of his family (pets)...saw Baily and all of the other amazing creatures and connected with him and his heart. I also saw some of his favorite authors on facebook ...and one was Ann Coutler ~ Godless (I pulled out my hardcopy my brother Mike bought me in 2006 and started reading on the beach yesterday ~ and noticed the author dedicated the book to George). Love to all of the family ~ thank you for sharing his words with us ...keep reading that powerful line over and over. Much Love Marian Woodrow
