In Loving Memory Of
Lewis Lindon Ryan
Lewis Lindon Ryan, resident of Grande Prairie, AB, passed away on Saturday, June 5, 2021, at the QEII Hospital in Grande Prairie at the age of 81 years.
Lewis was born at West Middle Sable, NS, on November 17, 1939, an only son to Clarence and Hilda (nee Latham) Ryan.
He attended elementary school at a one room country school, then his high school years were spent in Lockeport, NS, where he was active in basketball, soccer, volleyball, baseball, and the student union.
At the age of 17, he moved to Grande Prairie to find work. He worked at a logging camp (Camp 5) that first winter, then got a job at Cockshutt Farm Equipment and received his Partsman Journeyman ticket there.
In 1968, he received employment at Northern Metallic Sales and Visa Truck Rentals, and was a loyal employee for that company for 35 years. Over the years, he was involved in fastball, junior hockey, and junior baseball. He loved to go fishing, hunting, quadding, skidooing and golfing. After his retirement, he was happy to do more of these hobbies plus go out in the bush with his buddy and cut down trees to sell as firewood, which he did for 9 years.
Lewis was a dedicated family man and spent many days at their Sturgeon Lake retreat with family and friends. He was a loyal friend and loved his family.
He will be sadly missed by his loving wife Betty; children: Jim (Jacki) Ryan, Wenda (Vaughn) Dueck, and Michelle (Brent) Miller; grandchildren: Robert Ryan, Derrick Ryan, Taylor Ryan, Tonya Dueck, Keira Dueck, Bobby Miller, Brenna Miller, and Riley Miller; as well as great-grandchildren: Daniel, Rueben, Asha, Luna, Zachary, Colson, and Lila.
