Ryan Standridge
Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of Ryan Standridge.  Ryan was born July 07, 1985 and passed away on February 13, 2007 at the age of 21.  Ryan was more than most people could ever hope to be.  His biggest fault was that he didn't know how wonderful he was or how much he meant to all of us.  We will remember him forever.

This was written by Ryan’s father, but expresses how the entire family feels.

When Ryan was young we sometimes called him Niblet or RyeRye or Boy. Ninja turtles, Batman, Power Rangers and Karate were his passions.

As he grew older we called him Mr. Ryan, or the Ryan-meister. His sense of humor blossomed; he tried many things at school and in life. Soccer, baseball, plays at the school, and playing guitar were but a few of his interests. He loved MASH on TV, Star Trek, and family gatherings. He also really enjoyed his M&M’s and Diet Coke.

He called himself Minkis on line and always had a knack for working on computer software, since the first Commador 64 appeared.

Ryan always seemed to have some future Road trip planned that may or may not happen, but I’ve rarely seen him happier than during his times on vacation with family or on family holiday gatherings.

I mainly called him son, and loved spending time with him, playing golf, or just meeting for a quick lunch together was always something I looked forward to.

Ryan was called “Grandson” by our parents; “Brother” by Meghan, Mandy, Barney and Emma; “Nephew” by his uncles and aunts, and “Friend” by all who knew him.

In the future I’m sure we’ll still refer to Ryan by all these names, but somewhere in the conversation, the words “we lost him in February of 2007”, will always come up.

We will miss our Beloved son Ryan more than words can describe, but it is our prayer that with Gods help someday there will only be a happy place in our hearts and minds as we share our memories with each other.

Good Bye Niblet, RyeRye, Boy, Ryanmeister, Minkis, Brother, Grandson, nephew and Son. We all know you are at peace now with our Heavenly father. There’s lots of family there, so you won’t be alone. We will all see you on the other side, until then you’ll live here in each of our hearts.
