Ryan's Story


Our little ray of sunshine

Ryan Martz was born to Cliff and Arlene on December 19, 2008. He became the world to his big brother Devon, who in turn became Ryan’s hero. Ryan was born with a rare congenital disorder known as Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum. He went through a lot in the first few years of his life, always back and forth, to and from the hospital, with month after month of setbacks.

Despite his challenges, Ryan always had a twinkle in his eye and an infectious smile on his face. Ryan’s love was pure and he brought joy into the lives of everyone he encountered. Besides the love he shared with his family and friends, Ryan had a great love for the sun. He could always be found wherever the sun was shining the brightest.

Ryan left us suddenly and unexpectedly in March 2016 to take his place in his heavenly home. But his rays continue to shine and impact all those who knew him in life and those who have been touched by him in death. We miss you Ryan and can’t wait to see you again and run our fingers through that curly hair of yours.
