He also worked at Grenier Industrial. Ryan was a friend to all that he met. He could be spotted around the neighborhood riding around and visiting in his wheelchair with his “disco lights” blinking, He brought joy to all that saw or knew him. Some of his favorite past times were going to the casino, helping at the gym, watching the Saints, going down to the camp in Cocodrie, spending time with his family and of course, eating.
