( 1977-2013 )
Ryan Kirk was a son, brother, friend, and humanitarian. Ryan left his family the greatest gift you can in death, he left them inspiration. Inspiration to do more random acts of kindness, inspiration to help others in need, and inspiration to leave the world better than we found it.
He was a man who knew defeat, knew suffering, knew struggle and, as such, had an appreciation, sensitivity and an understanding of life that filled him with compassion, gentleness, and a deep-loving concern for others. His legacy inspired Make a Wave, and through it, his legacy will live on.
