Ryan C. Peck, 29, passed away suddenly on Tuesday April 21st, 2020.
He is survived by his Mother, Valerie S. (Peck) Donovan; His father, Paul V. Peck (Doreen); his brother Sean P. Peck (Molly); his niece Adeline; his life's best friend, Leslie K. Meeks; and his aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends. Ryan was a very special and spiritual young man. Ryan was a student, studying a career path devoted to helping others overcome the battle of addiction. Although he lost his own battle to the demons of this disease, his love of helping others will live on. Ryan was always the optimist and was able to see the beauty in life and the good in others and had a special way of showing others to do the same. He loved photography, the outdoors, and was an avid reader, always looking for a good book to read. Although, taken away too soon, Ryan would want his life to be celebrated, not mourned. He will forever be deeply missed by all who knew him.
A private family memorial will be held, due the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic. THERE IS NO PUBLIC VISITATION FOR RYAN.
There will be a Celebration of Ryan’s life for all his family and friends at a future date, when the current restrictions are lifted.
The family is hoping that we can all be together for his final interment and to celebrate Ryan for his birthday in September.
“Don't Think of Him as Gone Away”
Don't think of him as gone away-
his life's journey's just begun,
Life holds so many facets-
this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days or years.
Think of how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched..
for nothing loved is ever lost-
and Ryan was loved so very much. *
*from the poem by Ellen Brenneman
