Ryan Brown Memorial Fund

Ryan suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on April 10th. This great man was a fantastic husband, caring father, adored coach, and loyal friend.  Ryan's circle of influence extended even beyond his own family.
Ryan was quick to serve others, often taking his children with him to help change the oil in a neighbor's car or to fix a friend's broken appliance.

Over the years, he's coached and inspired many young men with his unfailing belief in them and their abilities. Indeed, he's like a second father to many. When he wasn't coaching his sons' teams, he could be seen (and sometimes heard haha) somewhat anxiously pacing the sidelines as a proud dad and fan. He was easily identifiable by his old, tattered, red Liverpool hat he always wore. 

Ryan's wife and four children, all under age 20, are grieving. His oldest son, Trevor, came home from school and found him unresponsive, and his efforts to revive him were in vain. The family is understandably struggling with this tragedy. Funds from this campaign will be used for funeral expenses and to provide some small sense of temporal and financial peace.
