Patrick Ryan

Patrick Ryan

Father, lover, friend, brother, son

Patrick was an amazing man. His opioid addiction didn't change this. He was lighthearted, funny, and sweet. He loved his daughter. He loved life. He had so much more to live for, but now we live for him. He was a week shy of his 30th birthday and was home a short month from a successful program in a halfway house. I loved Patrick more than anything. He was my person, my best friend, and the love of my life. We miss his laugh and his animated personality. There aren't enough words to describe the loss we have suffered. I could go on and on about him. His daughter and I carry him with us always.
