Ryan Daniel Shirey, 27 years, of Catasauqua died February 19, 2021. Born in Allentown, he was son of Karl and Zena (Jackson) Shirey.A lover of animals, Ryan battled mental health issues all of his life but found pleasure in composing electronic music and exploring digital spaces. He will be remembered for his endless curiosity and tenacity to research things that caught his interest. He would want it known that he was a fierce advocate for the decriminalization of marijuana for both medicinal and recreational use. Ryan was most comfortable surrounded by his immediate family who will miss him dearly. Surviving along with his parents are his sister Angelique Jackson, her daughter Marlene Jackson, and their family Christopher Irwin and Jeffrey Purdon. Private services will be held at the convenience of his family. Donations to Lehigh Valley Therapy Dogs are requested in lieu of flowers at lvtherapydogs.org.

Not sure what to say?

Somewhere the sun is warm and bright. The sky is clear and blue. A dog named Hunter plays with his boy named Ryan. You are so loved.

So very sad.

I’m very sorry for the loss of your Ryan, he sounded like a wonderful young man. May he Rest In Peace

My Deepest Symphony for your loss. There are no words to make it better. I'm so sorry. I hope something good can from this. The depressed mind is a dangerous place, more need to be done for mental health. Again I'm so sorry for your loss.
