Ryan Matthew Potratz

Our Shooting Star

Ryan Matthew Potratz died unexpectedly in the early hours of the morning on December 4, 2017.

Ryan Potratz was born January 6th, 1992 in Burlington, IA

Ryans passion during his life involved anything with graphic design and photography. Ryan was often found doodling, drawing, painting, and listening to music. He loved taking pictures of the sky no matter the weather. He spent his spare time playing video games like World of Warcraft and Runescape.

Ryan was a kind soul who helped anyone in need. He cherished his close friends, family, and loved ones, and especially his dog, Max. His free spirit will always be fondly remembered by those who knew him.

We refer to him as our shooting star, his spirit burned so brightly but was gone so fast.

Our prayer for Ryan:
I weep, but not for me. I weep for all the tomorrow’s that you will never see. It’s not my loss that makes me sad. It’s thinking what you never had.

Miss you everyday Ryan. Love Mom, Dad, Sis and Max.
