Ryan C. Broehm age 24, of N1620 Topaz Court, Greenville, died unexpectedly Monday, Oct. 23, 2006 the result of a cabin fire while hunting in Iron County. Ryan was born July 17, 1982 in Augusta, GA son of Rev. Dennis and Barbara Huebner Broehm. Rev. Dennis Broehm was the former pastor of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Martinez, GA from 1979-1995. In 1996 he accepted a call as pastor of Immanuel Ev. Lutheran Church of Manitowoc, WI. Ryan was a great companion and friend, a buddy. His ability to empathize with the feelings of others and bring comfort to anyone was a gift not many of us are as fortunate to possess. Ryan attended the Aldersgate Pre-School, South Columbia Elementary School, Lakeside Middle School all in Georgia and was a 2001 graduate of Manitowoc Lutheran High School in Wisconsin. Ryan worked with passion as a student engineer both in and out of the classroom. His abilities in all aspects, especially math and physics wereto reach fulfillment in his graduation, December 2006. Thus, leading him closer to achieving his goal of becoming a registered land surveyor. The past two summers he worked for the City of Appleton Dept. of Public Works in the Engineering Dept. He was a member of Mount Olive Evangelical Lutheran Church of Appleton. Ryan's love of sports especially, baseball and football was life long. Ryan also possessed a deep love for the outdoors and whether it was catching perch in his home state of Georgia, casting for that elusive musky, calling to the flights of geese, or pursuing bucks in the fall; he took great pride in his endless preparation and accomplishments. In recent years Ryan had become an excellent archer and his love for the sport was evident in and out of the woods. Ryan was well equipped with his great skill, and his desire to continuously learn every time he set foot in the woods - pursuing the dream of a trophy. He was involved in this passionate quest when the Lord graciouslycalled him home. Ryan was dearly loved by his family and friends, but loved even more by his Lord Jesus. From the day of his baptism, the gift of God's grace was his precious possession and Ryan occupied a place in God's family. This week Ryan achieved his greatest accomplishment, his greatest victory was won, and the glory of eternal life is now his forever. Ryan will be deeply missed. It was an honor for us to have known him and to have had him share in our lives. Our buddy is departed but never gone. We look forward to being re-united with him when the victory of eternal life in Jesus becomes our own. Until then let us comfort each other in knowing that God will give us the strength and peace to celebrate Ryan's life and honor his gentle, caring, and compassionate spirit. Let us never forget, he is with us alwaysÉ and the best is yet to come!!! Survivors include his parents: Rev.
