Paul M. Ryan Sr., 55, of Downingtown, passed away the morning of Sunday, March 15th, 2020. Paul was the loving husband to Theresa Kelley Ryan for 30 years of marriage and son to Warren T. Ryan and Verna C. Ryan.
Paul worked at Sterling Kitchens in the Service and Installation department for the last 20 years. He worked hard to support his family and their hobbies – spending time together around a campfire, on their boat, or at home with their dogs. He always brought a light to the room with his sense of humor and compassion for others. Although he passed, Paul won his battle with cancer. Cancer never had him – he beat his disease everyday with his positive outlook. His joy for life inspired everyone who knew him.
In addition to his wife, Theresa, and mother, Verna, Paul is survived by his children, PJ and Shannon Ryan as well as his brothers: Allen, David, and Dale Ryan. Paul is predeceased by his father, Warren T. Ryan.
