Jack P. Ryan


Jack Ryan passed away on December 25, 2020, after a lengthy illness at age 70. He was born in New Hampshire and lived in several New England states before his family settled in Orange County, California. Jack graduated from Bolsa Grande High School in Garden Grove from where he embarked on a diverse career which included the entertainment industry and several service organizations. Jack is fondly remembered for his life of service to others.

His joy came from sharing the gift of laughter to everyone he met. He loved to love on people—always available to lend a helping hand and always with a smile.

For the past four years, Jack was a case manager at New Found Life in Long Beach. He trusted the Lord to lead him and he was a good example of creating joy with a giving heart. Jack was grateful to help others, one day at a time.

Jack is survived by his mother, Valeria Ryan; brother, Tom Ryan; sisters Susan, Kathleen, and Eileen Alexon (John), and many cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Robert James Ryan, and brothers, Robert James Ryan Jr. and Paul Richard Ryan.

In lieu of flowers, his family encourages donations to

New Found Life.

A memorial service for friends and family is pending the lift of Covid-19 restrictions.
