Ryan Larson Tribute


Hilarious, witty, smart and at peace, Ryan Larson 37, left us suddenly in the early morning of Tuesday December 12, 2023. He felt ill on Monday, he then died peacefully during the night. The family would like to extend their gratitude to Merilyn Vargus for her effort to help by alerting EMT's. Merilyn and Ryan enjoyed a beautiful friendship and her love for Ryan will be remembered. This loss has left the family with profound sadness but please keep her in your thoughts too.

Ryan leaves his mother Lynn, father Robert (Chris), sister Carolyn (Nate) and daughter Emily Kathryn. We will miss Ryan's gentle nature more than words can say. Losing a child is not easily put into words nor is explaining the loss to children.

Ryan was laid back and capable. He was good at whatever he put his mind to. He has been a loving father to Emily and Annabelle and loyal friend. He was a great listener who could comfort with patience and change the harshest reality into a slight blow.

Of Ryan's many accomplishments his most cherished is his daughter Emily, 8 who adores her Dad. He also leaves Em's sister Annabelle. She has been a part of our family for 10 years along with their mother Kelly, all who will miss his generous spirit beyond measure. Missing him is an extended family of cousins Cristin, Greg, Ben, Ian, Nick and BIll, and aunts Lindy and Heidi Larson. He was predeceased by grandparents John and Henrietta Larson of Deep River.

Ryan was a graduate of the 2005 class at Lyme-Old Lyme. His talent was a welcome addition to The Select Singers with performances in several musicals.

He received his RN at Goodwin College where he thrived and was a respected leader in the Nursing program. He worked as a Peer tutor at the ASC, a tight knit setting where supportive connections with staff felt more like family and where lasting professional relationships were formed. He has worked as an RN for several years.

Ryan's family will hold a private memorial luncheon in his honor.

Rest peacefully Rylars. You will be with us always...loved and missed everyday.

If you think of Ryan... sing or laugh out loud.

Those wishing to make a memorial donation, please consider the American Heart Association.
