Obituary of Brendan Ryan

~~Brendan Christopher Ryan, Rochester: At the age of 33 passed peacefully in his sleep on October 20th. Predeceased by his grandparents, Michael and Mary Jane Ryan; aunts Cheryl Ryan and Mary Grace Ryan. Survived by his loving parents, Kevin and Pamela; younger siblings Shawna Lee and Dana; grandparents, Martin and Helen Agnew; many uncles and aunts: Michael (Kathy) Ryan, Tim (Mary) Ryan, Anne McCullough, Patty (Jamie) McDonough, Terry (Trudy) Ryan, Jeannie Ryan, Dan Ryan, Cindy (Chris) Rau, Jo Ann (Bill) Wheatley, Kathy (Mark) Relyea; along with many cherished cousins and an endless amount of lifelong friends.
Brendan’s voice carried songs, love, conversation, and laughter. His truest gift was in making others feel present. He created a community of friends wherever he was; he had a knack for including others whether it was his closest friend or someone he had just met. His powerful positivity was most evident in his love for family, friends, music and in his steadfast support for the Buffalo Bills. He was someone you could talk with for hours about anything from the most serious to the most silly. All our lives are better for knowing him. He will be dearly missed.

Winton Road, 14623 Thursday, October 26th, from 4-8pm and a service will be held at 1 PM Friday at Churc of the Assumption, 20 East Avenue, Fairport, New York 14450. The family asks for the courtesy of no flowers. Charitable donations can be made in memory of Brendan to Habitat for Humanity, an organization he held dear to his heart.
