Sadly, we lost Sean Christopher Ryan this past Sunday, October 27.
Like many children of military families Chris lived in several places
during his 22 years. He was born at Fort Lewis, Washington, attended
elementary school and began Junior High in East Grand Rapids, Michigan
before moving to Mount Jackson, Virginia in eighth grade where he
learned to fence foil and epee at the Virginia Academy of Fencing.
After moving to Leavenworth, Kansas, Chris continued fencing with Five
Rings Fencing Club until he earned the right to compete in the 2007
Junior Olympics. Chris graduated from Leavenworth High School in 2009
and is survived by Mariah, Father-Sean, Mother-Lori, Sister-Erica, many
aunts, uncles, and cousins, and many friends whose lives he touched.
A memorial/celebration of life service will take place at noon on
Saturday, 2 November, at Weston Bend State Park. We will have light 
refreshments afterward. There will be signs posted directing attendees to the 
specific location within the park.
Fort Leavenworth florist will deliver floral arrangements or plants;
they did request orders (orders may be submitted directly to them at
913-682-7184, thru FTD, or Teleflora) NLT Friday. Alternatively,
donations to iFred, the International Foundation for Research and
Education on Depression, ( are welcomed.
