Christopher Ryan

May 15, 1985 — January 30, 2024

Christopher Martin Ryan, lovingly known as "Topher" or "Uncle Bro," departed from this world on January 30, 2024. Born on May 15, 1985, in Tulsa, Oklahoma

Christopher graduated from Jenks High School in 2003, where he forged lifelong friendships and laid the foundation for a promising future. Christopher thrived on hands-on experiences and practical knowledge gained through relentless hard work. He was a Jack of all Trades with expertise ranging from hydraulic repair to sheet rock construction, landscaping to irrigation. His ability to adapt and excel in different fields showcased his remarkable determination and resilience.

This man of many talents embarked on incredible journeys that enriched his character. Notably, Christopher cherished his time working in Alaska and more recently in Mobile, Alabama. These experiences allowed him to soak in the diversity of landscapes and cultures.

Fun-loving by nature, Christopher never encountered a stranger. His infectious laughter warmed hearts wherever he went. Known for his unwavering kindness and selflessness, he would lend a helping hand to anyone in need without hesitation. Christopher's compassionate nature endeared him to all those fortunate enough to cross his path.

Sometimes wild at heart and perhaps prone to taking risks, Christopher lived life to the fullest. While venturing into uncharted territories, he always found his way back home-to the ones he loved dearly. Their unwavering support became the anchor grounding him during life's adventures.

Christopher was preceded in death by his grandfathers Big Papa Bob and Lil Papa Red and his grandmother Nana. In addition, he was an uncle to his nephew Caven. The bond Christopher shared with his honorary brother, Christopher "Joey" Pace, was one of profound camaraderie and friendship.

Among those left behind are his parents Martin Ryan, Jina McCaslin, and Jackie Ryan. His siblings Cody & Jesica, Caleb & Hali, Brandon & Macensie, and Malia join in mourning the loss of their beloved brother. Christopher also leaves behind nephews Jax, JP, Koda, and Nolan who will forever cherish the memories they created together. His grandmothers Rosa Ryan and Yolanda Staiger hold him dear in their hearts.

Numerous aunts, uncles, cousins-too many to count-are grieving the departure of this remarkable soul. Christopher's magnetic personality brought people together and formed a tight-knit community grounded in love and support.

Christopher Martin Ryan blessed our lives with his exuberant spirit and zest for life. Though he may have left this earthly realm far too soon, we find solace in knowing that his memory will live on eternally within us all. Farewell dear Christopher: you shall forever remain in our hearts as an epitome of boundless love and unyielding joy.
