Fans Are Supporting Ryan’s Family
Brad Sparks set up a GoFundMe page for Ryan’s family to cover the funeral expenses and to assist his family in the aftermath of his tragic death.
It reads, “Ryan was an avid car enthusiast and was a road ‘warrior’ in many ways that extended to loves of basketball, cars, and business in sales/advertising. He was admired for his tenacity and relentless drive to overcome the challenges before him.
The only thing he loved more than these efforts were his family – his wife Liz, Children Josiah (18), and Olivia (10). The family will need help with the next steps of grief and living life after losing the heart and soul of their beautiful family.”
