He graduated from Highland Park High School, received his Bachelors in Philosophy at Loyola University Chicago and Master of Architecture at Miami University of Ohio. He worked in the architecture industry for the past 16 years and was a member of the AIA. Ryan was very passionate about architecture and would talk about it with anyone who would listen. Anyone who knew Ryan was touched by his kindness, humor and caring nature. Ryan will be lovingly remembered by his wife Jodie, 7 year old daughter Camilla, mother, Tanya Grozeva and father Georgi Arnaudov, sister-in-laws, Kristin Smith, Marney Keiper, Erin Keiper, and Georgette Hlepas and nieces Taylor, Natalie, Georgia and nephews Demetri and Kayden. Ryan loved being a dad more than anything in the world and was a truly incredible husband. He was taken from us way too soon and we will miss him more than words can say.
