Ryan Andrew Wayne Kekelis was born April 4, 1989 in Painesville, Ohio but lived most his life in Illinois; most recently Oregon, Illinois.
Ryan loved politics, football, and trying new foods. He also loved to travel; to see new places and meet friends along the way. He leaves behind many of these friends he met throughout his journey.
He will be missed by his mom and dad in Cornell, IL; his maternal grandma in VA; his paternal grandma in OH; his two aunts, Angie in VA and Gina in OH; as well as two very special friends - his cousins Ken in VA and Corrine in OH.
As Ryan finished his earthly travels, a few special people were there to cheer him across the finish line: his "great" grandpa, his adored Aunt Kerri, and the two brothers he never met.
Ryan completed his journey on earth on November 25, 2020. Our comfort is knowing we will meet him again in heaven where our adventures together will be eternal.
Ryan would not want flowers; he liked to help people. He would prefer you send donations in his memory to: Grass Roots Food Panty, 405 N 4th St, Cornell, IL 61319.
