Pat was born on October 14, 1939 in Chicago, Illinois.  He married Charlotte Stewart on June 5, 1971 in Newport, Rhode Island. 

He was a true patriot, serving 20 years in the United States Navy as a Bosun’s Mate.  He enjoyed competing in triathlons, bowling, horseshoes, and singing karaoke with friends.  Pat endeared himself to a close group of friends by saying what he thought and meaning what he said.

Pat is survived by his wife, Charlotte; son Shawn (Kimberly) Ryan, and their two daughters; and siblings, Bob and Mary Ryan, Dan and Lola Ryan, and John and Cookie.

He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Anna Ryan; brother Jim Ryan; twin-sister Patsy Girondi; and sisters Peggy, Clara, and Kathleen.

The family wishes to send a special thank you to the incredibly caring staffs at the Wisconsin Rapids Aspirus Cancer Center and ICU.
