Ryan Patrick Coyston
April 20, 1978-February 17, 2020
Ryan passed away peacefully in his sleep with his dog Ivy by his side, early in the morning on Monday February 17, at the age of 41.
He will be forever missed and always remembered by his parents: Brian and Debbie; his sister Mandy Gizen, her husband Mike and their daughters Sydney and Olivia; his brother Barry, his partner Darrell Roland and Barry’s sons, Oliver and Levi. He will be lovingly missed by his large extended family and his many loyal friends, especially his long time friend and loving partner Stephanie Meilleur and her daughter Leia.
Ryan was a man quick to help those who needed a hand, could fix anything and cook everything. His dry wit and quick sense of humour were unmatched. Ryan enjoyed spending time at The Island, fishing, boating and fixing what ever he could. Giving his nephews and nieces “stingers” and tormenting them in ways only Uncle Ryan could, was also a favourite past time. Ryan showed love like no other; the more he teased, tormented and annoyed you, the greater he loved you. Ryan also enjoyed going to concerts and spending time with his buddies.
He was a lover of the outdoors, great food, music and his dogs.
