Ryan W. Romness Obituary

Ryan W. Romness, of Sutter, CA, went to rest on November 2, 2017. He was born in Yuba City, CA, to Terry and Faye Romness on April 9, 1975. He remained in the area for all his 42 years. In 1998, he met Janell Elliott and in June 2002, they married and started their journey together.

Ryan is survived by his wife Janell; daughter Morgan (11); and son Brody (8); his brother Rodney Romness (Liz) and their two sons Nicholai and Nathan of Yuba City. He also is survived by his Uncle Bob Romness of Lincoln; his Aunt Sugar Lear (King) of Los Altos; his Aunt Louise Darden of Carson City; and his father-in-law Don Elliott (Valli).

Ryan was blessed with several lifelong friendships. Many people knew and loved Ryan, and the list grew ever longer as he moved through life. He was preceded in death by his parents Terry and Faye Romness.

Ryan was a self-taught mechanic. If it had a motor he could keep it running. Give Ryan a couple tools, bailing wire, duct tape, he would keep it going.

He worked in the agricultural industry starting at Reclamation District 108 and several years with local agricultural supply companies. Then one year he landed a contract to harvest an almond orchard, soon he had other contracts. Ryan, completed these contracts after hours.

In 2012 Ryan, Janell and family realized a dream by purchasing acreage in the Sutter Buttes. Always wanting to be on his own, in 2014 Ryan left his position with the agriculture company to start his own custom harvesting operation.

Ryan was a self-reliant man, armed with confidence in his abilities to work hard and meet challenges, his ability to repair equipment and his easy going nature, he started the new business. He proved himself, as this venture was becoming a success.

Family and friends know Ryan enjoyed his past time activities with a passion. He enjoyed time watching his kids in sports and 4-H, snowmobiling, being at his cabin in LaPorte, duck hunting and striper fishing. He looked forward to cooking lunch at the Winter Special Olympics in LaPorte.

These last years he spent time turning the ranch into a special place for his family. Installing zip lines, motorcycle tracks, slip and slides to the pond, shooting ranges, and a pumpkin patch.

Ryan's passing will leave an empty space in many lives, yet he was able to accomplish several of his dreams, and had many, many adventures with friends and family.

Services will be held Friday, November 10, 2017, at the Chapel of the Twin Cities, 715 Shasta Street, Yuba City, starting at 10:30 am. Followed by a reception at the SYO Building in Sutter.

Never known to be one to dress up, feel free to come in jeans and boots.
