My sincere condolences. We were not close but Ryan was my drum line section leader freshman year in High School and I have nothing but great memories of that time. I’m glad to have had him as my leader that first year.
May he rest in peace.

Sharon, the love that bonded you and Ryan will forever be deep in your heart. Little things will spark memories. In time what causes pain will be replaced with sweet memories. Always remember that our time here is but a stepping stone on the way to heaven. You will be reunited with Ryan. Oh what a joyful day that will be!

Ryan and I met in Florida around 2014, both of us were born in Hartford, CT and that’s where my brother from another mother’s bond began. Our friendship and working relationship was special and I will never forget the test experiment Ryan did of flying a drone above the guest at my 40th birthday party inside of a hotel…if he could dream it, it could be done! Rest well my friend!❤️

We made some great photo projects over the years and the results you created were so awesome! I always enjoyed the times we spent together and the creative collaborations.
You were a good friend and I will miss you.

I met Ryan through A.G.I.A.T.T, which was one reason I immediately liked Ryan. I’m a sucker for a creative acronym. Through Ryan, I met so many others who would one day become a part of my life. Ryan had a big heart, and he loved people. I would watch his eyes shine with excitement and his smile grow from ear to ear when he was surrounded by friends and family, engaged in laughter and conversation. His soul will live on through the loved ones that he made throughout the years, the connections he bonded together, and his voice and laughter will exist in our hearts forever. Rest in peace, my brother.

Ryan was an incredibly talented individual that I was fortunate enough to work with on a few occasion. He was incredibly upbeat and that energy will definitely be missed. Until we meet again brother.

We will miss you so much. Knowing you for 20 years it doesn’t seem real that you won’t be here anymore. It’s not fair. But I know we will see you again. Rest easy brother. I’ll always be your sis. Love you

Sharon and Christina
It is still so incredibly hard to accept that Ryan is now in heaven. My heart aches for you both and honestly it leaves such a void in all of us that loved and appreciated Ryan and his zest for life. He will be so missed
I shared with you the one thing that brought me comfort after my dad’s passing, when someone said as much as he loved his family if given the opportunity to come back he would choose heaven. I loved hearing that. I hope it comforts your heart in some small way. Please know you both are loved by so many and others want to comfort you in any way possible. I continue to hold you close to my heart thru prayer

I met Ryan at a comic book convention. I was introduced to him by some photographers, and instantly notice with a friendly, huge heart he had. It felt like I knew him for decades, and that kind of charisma is rare in a person. He definitely had an amazing grasp of life and enjoyed every bit of it. I always wanted to meet him again because he made me feel like a friend, even though we only met twice. I will never forget him.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
