Ryan loved to cook and replicate his grandmother's cherished recipes. The connection he felt with his Mexican heritage inspired him to dream of one day opening his own Mexican restaurant.
He relied on his love and support from his devoted sisters, Debbie and Heather, and his caring grandmother, Mary. They were by his side throughout all of life's ups and downs, and they remained a source of strength until the very end. Their presence provided comfort during Ryan's final moments as they lovingly surrounded him.

He is survived by his sisters, Debbie Cruz and Heather Cruz; grandmother, Mary; parents, David and Barbara Cruz; five brothers, Daniel and Derrick Kimbrell, Christopher, Christian, and Manuel Cruz; fiancé, Jessica; and his daughter, Sonja.
Ryan was preceded in death by his mother, Virginia Alamia, whom he had a special bond with and greatly missed.
