Paul Ryan Obituary
Ryan, Paul
Apr 13, 1929 - Jan 1, 2019
On January 1, 2019 Paul Max Ryan passed away at his home in Plymouth, MI at the age of 89. Paul was born on April 13, 1929 in Owego, NY to the late Ellsworth and Alice (Fernald) Ryan. He married Phyllis Coon and they raised three sons, Paul Jr., Tom, and Ken. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and had a distinguished career as a firefighter in Washington, D.C. After Phyllis died, he found love again and married Grace. They remained married until his death.
Paul always enjoyed sports, and particularly excelled at bowling and shuffleboard. He was a talented handyman, unafraid to tackle anything. From pouring concrete to repairing sheetrock to siding the house, it seemed nothing was beyond his abilities. Whether it be with handyman work, driving friends to medical appointments or just being there, he was always quick to volunteer to help out others.
Paul was preceded in death by brother Jim (Ellsworth, Jr.), wife Phyllis and son Tom. He is survived by wife Grace, sons Paul Jr. and Ken, grandchildren Daniel, Kevin, John and Michael, and many nieces and nephews.
