    We regarded Ryan as a friend and an ally in our quest to beautify our property. He was honest, reliable, and had a good eye for landscape. He solved many problems for us and made our street look its best. Ryan cared about his customers, and nature’s beauty. He was a friendly face in the neighborhood and we miss him.

    Sorry to hear of your brothers passing. I know times like this aren’t easy, but remember the good times.

    I’m sad to read of Ryan’s passing! I went to SMM and Central with him and he was a kind soul who was always so easy-going. I’m sure he’ll be missed by many.

    I saw this by chance in the paper and was stunned. I haven’t seen Ryan for several years. I met him when he was 20 and starting his business. I was one of his first customers. I suggested the name The Groundskeeper for his company and designed the logo for him, even picking the colors. We go way back. Many of the funniest memories in my life and when I laughed the hardest with someone was with Ryan! He had such a spiritual soul and was knowledgeable on many subjects. I know his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews will really miss him and his laugh. Very sorry for your loss. Maggie Jones
