Note: Ryan preferred things casual and fun. The family would like services to be the same. With that in mind, the family asks that those in attendance celebrate Ryan and his favorite things - Ohio State and Star Wars - by wearing Ohio State colors or shirts, or Star wars T-shirts, etc. Either way, they wish the day to be casual, fun and loving in Ryan’s memory and in a style he loved.
