The family of Gregory Donald Ryder is sad to announce his passing on September 6, 2021.
He was born in Kelowna on September 28, 1962. Being the middle child and only son of 5 children born to Don and Yvonne Ryder. Greg is survived by his 3 daughters, Amber (Steve), Amanda, and Leah (Jayden). And his 4-legged boy, Sherman who was always by his side. Grandchildren, Mariah and Nevaeh. Greg is also survived by his mom Yvonne Ryder and 4 sisters, Donna (Shawn) Campbell, Sandra (Frank) Lenarcic, Terri (Jodie) Phillipoff, and Tammy (Tim) Ervin. Many nephews and nieces. Greg is predeceased by his dad, Donald Ryder, November 11, 2020.
Greg was born and raised in Kelowna; and still made it his home. Just like his dad, Greg worked in the roofing industry; starting up his own company, Ryder Roofing, since 1992.
He still kept in touch with old friends from high school and building many new friendships over the years. He was always there to help family and friends, either by offering them jobs, place to live, or just a helping hand and kind words.
Greg enjoyed hunting, fishing, quadding, snowmobiling, and just spending time with his friends and family. Greg had an infectious smile and a great big hug to give whenever he was around.
Greg was a strong support to his mom since the passing of his dad. Always stopping in to see if she needed anything, keeping her company, and spending many meals together. Greg’s youngest daughter, Leah, has been such a blessing in his life. When he became ill with diabetes a few years ago, she took it upon herself to make sure he ate right and took his medication. Greg was so proud this past June when Leah graduated from high school. In late July, Greg became ill with Covid. He fought hard and beat the virus; but sadly, could not beat the damage it caused to his body. His family and friends are saddened by his sudden passing.
A celebration of life will be planned at a later date.
