I express with a heavy heart the passing of Ryley Madden on Friday, July 28th, 2017. As many of you already know, Ryley was loved by many and expressed his love for others from the deepest places in his heart. He always cracked a joke whenever he could get the chance and found great enjoyment in making others laugh. His smile and rosie cheeks could light up the universe and bring light to us all no matter what the circumstance.
I am sharing this page with all of you to express the sadness that has reached all of our hearts. In lieu of flowers, I ask that family and friends make a small donation to help towards Ryley's daughter Eibhlyn. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a foundation of the Madden families choosing.
Ryley was a beloved son, brother, father, and friend. His parents, Rick and Kelley raised him and his brother Shayne to be such gentlemen. Never in my life have a met such humble, generous, caring, humorous, and strong men. Thank you Rick and Kelley, you are both truly the representation of the perfect parents. You both gave your children the world and I am honored to be a part of your family.
I personally remember meeting Ryley for the first time. He was in grade 6 and within my sister's group of friends. I was the annoying little sister that wouldn't stop teasing him about blushing in front of all the girls and every time I did, well he would just change to that perfect shade of red that you didn't think was possible because how could he get any more red than he already was.
Ryley used to always say "I'm here for a good time, not a long time", and that's what he has given to all of us, the best of times.
Thank you for your support and love through this difficult time. We appreciate any donations and shares that you are able to contribute.
