Albeit late, my heart and prayers go out to the entire "Ryan Clan". Bud was one of my Dad's closest friends, and having his support, his most influential supportm help pave my way up Linden Lane, he was not only a hero to me, but a conduit to the wonderful days he and Dad shared together at Holy Cross. I know he is at peace with...

May God give you peace and comfort in your time of need.

No one ever received less than the warmest of greetings from Bud Ryan, and it was always genuine. The Ryans, Kirks and O'Connells span the generations, and ours was blessed to have known Bud and Elinor. Prayers for their peace and for the strength of their surviving loved ones at this time of loss.

Our deepest sympathy to the Ryan Family. Bud and Elinor handled our insurance and were like family. Our oldest son is a proud alumnus of Holy Cross thanks to Bud and our Grandson is now a young Holy Cross man as well.
A life well lived and an honor to know him.

I have wonderful memories of Bud. As a young boy I use to serve him in my father's restaurant in Brighton. I remember his wonderful voice when he would say, "How are you today?"

Our sympathy to all the Ryan's from the Higgins family. We go back to the days when Bud's father and my dad were great friends. Bud and Elinor served our business for many years providing our insurance. Through Pat Kelley I was able to stay in contact with Bud.He was one of the finest persons I ever knew, a truly wonderful man. God bless

Thank you for serving our country. May your family find comfort in their faith and may you rest in Peace!
