Burial Costs for Ryan Hazen

The tragic and unexpected loss of my nephew Ryan Hazen, a young man age 35, and father of four children (ages 2, 3 ½, 14, and 16 years old) has our family devastated from the loss. Ryan passed away so very unexpectedly following complications from a motor vehicle collision.  He did not have life insurance and the need for burial funds is a heavy weight being added to our grief.

Equally sad, Ryan was my sister Jan’s and brother-in-law Royal’s one and only child. Ryan’s children were his world and he was their beloved “Papa”. Without saying, their hearts are shattered by the loss of their father. Ryan was so young and on his way to a full future watching and experiencing the lives of his four children.

Ryan also served his country in the Navy, and then went on to earn his associates degree in the culinary field. After many frustrations he transitioned into a more stable field with State Farm and loved and excelled at his job. He was making good sound plans and decisions for his children’s future when he was so unexpectedly called home.

The family is in dire need of contributions for Ryan’s burial cost. Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated. Our entire family thanks you for your prayers and your much needed support.
