“Ryan was the biggest, brightest ray of sunshine for us. He loved life, his family and his friends. He was a brother, son and boyfriend - we were so lucky to have him in our lives. He always looked so smart and gorgeous. He was ambitious in life and loved to party.
“His family have been totally devastated by his loss, and we ask to be left in peace and given time to grieve. He had the biggest, kindest heart, and a bright light has been turned off in all of us that knew and loved him. Rest in peace Ryan, sleep tight our darling.”
