We ask on behalf of the family that you keep your comments uplifting and appropriate to help all who come here to find comfort and healing.
A lover of animals, Ryan battled mental health issues all of his life but found pleasure in composing electronic music and exploring digital spaces. He will be remembered for his endless curiosity and tenacity to research things that caught his interest. He would want it known that he was a fierce advocate for the decriminalization of marijuana for both medicinal and recreational use.
Ryan was most comfortable surrounded by his immediate family who will miss him dearly.
Surviving along with his parents are his sister Angelique Jackson, her daughter Marlene Jackson, and their family Christopher Irwin and Jeffrey Purdon.
Private services will be held at the convenience of his family. Donations to Lehigh Valley Therapy Dogs are requested in lieu of flowers at lvtherapydogs.org.
Brubaker Funeral Home, Inc. of Catasauqua is entrusted with arrangements.
