He leaves behind his loving wife and friend Jennifer and wonderful children Kristen and Kevin. Also mourning him are his brothers Michael (Christine) Ryan, Martin (Sacha) Ryan, William C. Reis, his mother Kristine Reis and the Giunchedi family. He was preceded in death by his brother Matthew P. Ryan, his grandmother Wanda Kostia, his step-father William C. Reis III, and best friend Kevin Mullin. Mark lived his life to the fullest attending and finding fun in the activities of his children and gathering with his many friends. He was an excellent cook and was famous for his Bar-B-Qs and grilling talents. He cheered for the White Sox and Bears. His 4h of July celebrations were like none other, beginning at dawn ending at dark. In addition he loved summer, swimming and the sun. He had the ability to sell anything, frequently engaging his customers with his great sense of humor. He made us laugh. Passionate, energetic, enthusiastic, are only a few words that come to mind when describing him. He admired Abe Lincoln who said "And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years". Memorial mass was said at Our Lady Of Perpetual Help Church on Saturday, January 29th, 2011. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Mark C. Ryan Memorial Trust, c/o Glenview State Bank, 800 Waukegan Road, Glenview Illinois, 60025. Attention Rosemary Myra would be appreciated.
