In Loving Memory of Ryan Reesor

Donation protected
On May 17th, my sister Amy Reesor lost the love of her life, and her kids Anna and Anson lost the most incredible father to have ever walked this earth. Ryan Reesor was the rock of his entire family, the most dependable friend and neighbour, and the most highly trained and expert firefighter. Over his 27 years in firefighting, with both the Toronto Fire Department and the Algonquin Highlands Volunteer Fire Department, Ryan saved countless lives and made a difference in the lives of thousands more.

As Amy and the kids navigate this heartbreaking new reality, we’d like to wrap them in as much support as possible. There are many unknowns with respect to both immediate and future needs for Amy and the kids and we want to make sure they have everything they need. We have been beautifully inundated with requests about how people can honour Ryan and ensure his beloved family are taken care of. This outpouring of love is a testament to all of the lives Ryan has touched.

Please join us in supporting Amy, Anna and Anson and in honouring Ryan’s incredible legacy. There are truly no words to describe how much we miss him already.

With love and thanks,

Emily Brandon (Amy’s sister)
