Ryan is survived by his Mom and Dad; his sister, Sofia; his brother, Seth; his grandparents, Susan and James Luxem and Judith Kaiser; and his great- grandparents, Felix and Lorraine Stachow. Ryan is further survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Paul Kaiser; and great-grandmother, Mae Luxem. Funeral services will take place on Tuesday, January 4, 2011, at 11 a.m. at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Union Grove with Rev. James Keuch officiating. Burial will follow in Union Grove Cemetery.
