I don’t want to write this post.

It’s tragic, and stupid, and far far too soon.

How can I do him justice? People who never met him are going to read this and I don’t have the prose.

His funeral is today, in fact it is happening as I write this. Ryan deserved to be remembered.

I only met him once, and he was a great guy.

I was honestly looking forward to the next convention we would be at and I wanted to ask him more about his band. I was looking forward to seeing him around and just hanging out in the hallways with this cool guy.

And now he’s gone.

You can see him in the background of a lot of the timegate gallery, but I only have one good photo of him.

Well, maybe two.

There is nothing else I can really say. If you want to know more about him, you can join Ryan’s Army

Allons-y!

Rest in Peace.
