Ryan Kilian Memorial Fundraiser

On Monday, July 12, 2021 our family suffered a tremendous loss. Ryan Kilian, a devoted father, husband, son, brother, friend, educator, coach, fan, and mentor passed away unexpectedly at home at age 43. Ryan left us a wealth of beautiful memories, but as he died unexpectedly, in the prime of his life and career, his death will cause a significant financial hardship on his beloved wife and boys.

Ryan’s life revolved around his sons, Kainen (10) and Bryson (9). They adored their father, and we are setting this GoFundMe up on their behalf so that their needs are met and they can feel more secure about the future, as he would’ve wanted. Anything you can contribute in his honor would be very much appreciated. Below I’ve linked beautiful articles written in the Boston Globe and the Bedford Citizen about the impact he had on so many lives. Please share your memories and feelings about Ryan below, as they’re helping us cope.
