Ryan L. Stanek, father, stepfather, son, grandfather,  brother, brother-in-law, uncle passed away the morning of March 1st. He had a heart disease that he was not aware of. He suffered a massive heart attack, Ryan was just 42 years old and had just began a new life with his loving wife,Cindy, of just six months. They had a love for each other that many admired. Their family had so many plans and dreams together. With this tragedy many will not be able to be fulled. His family will try as hard as they can to carry on the dreams and plans together. 

 He was a man who loved his family more than anything. Ryan and his son, Colton, enjoyed fishing, camping and hunting together. They had such an amazing bond together. They also enjoyed listening to their favorite music, especially Willie Nelson.

Ryan and Cindy's  children  also included Austin and Kaytee,, Alicia and Zack, and Gracie. Ryan just became their step dad six months ago but treated them as his own from the start. They also have a grandson, Callan, who he loved so much. He was going to bring his guitar to the hospital to sing his granddaughter, Layla Renae, who will be born in about two weeks.  

Ryan enjoyed spending time with his sisters, parents, and brother-in-laws. They went hunting, camping, boating, fishing, listening to music especially at the Ravina. They would stay up all night talking and playing music.

 He had a passion for writing and playing music in which you could tell by the smile he had on his face while he was playing his guitar for his friends and family.

With this unexpected tragedy family will need help to pay bills, take care of funeral cost,and other expenses until they can get back on their feet.
