Jared Ryan


Jared Baxter Ryan, beloved son, brother, and uncle, went home to be with his Lord on Wednesday, October 26, 2016, at the age of 36. He was born on June 17, 1980, to Richard and Sherryl Ryan of Houston and attended Weber Elementary and Webster Intermediate Schools before graduating from Clear Brook High School in 1998.

Jared is survived by his parents, his brother and sister-in-law, Jason and Emily Ryan of League City, his sister and brother-in-law, Sharla and Jeff Long of Richmond, six nephews, one niece, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

All who knew Jared were aware of his love of classic cars and airplanes, which he first developed as a child. His passion grew from models and RC planes to getting his pilot’s license in 2011. A week before his death, he fulfilled his lifelong dream of owning his own airplane, a yellow Wittman Tailwind which he loved perhaps even more than his classic 1984 Chevy El Camino.

In addition to flying, Jared enjoyed talking sports, talking politics, talking computers and sometimes just talking. He leaves behind a void that will be felt by his coworkers at C-Panel, his fellow members of the EAA Flight Club, but mostly by those who loved him most – his close family.

Visitation will be from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm Monday, October 31, and the service celebrating Jared’s life will be at 10:00 am Tuesday, November 1. Both services will be held at Niday Funeral Home – Beamer Chapel. Burial will follow at Forest Park East Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers please send monetary gifts in Jared’s memory to the Sagemont Church Helping Hands Ministry, 11300 S. Sam Houston Pkwy E., Houston, TX 77089.
