Patrick Matthew Ryan

June 8, 1998 — March 11, 2024

Nashua, New Hampshire

Patrick M. Ryan, 25, a resident of Nashua, NH, died tragically in Vermont in a snowmobile accident.

Beloved son of Elizabeth Surgenor (Biwald Ryan) of Phippsburg, ME and loving brother of Katherine Ryan of Gilford, NH. Grandson to Eleanor Ryan of Lowell.

Patrick grew up in Groton and graduated from the Groton Dunstable Regional High School.

Patrick was thoughtful, kind, sweet, welcoming, humorous, charming, sensitive, animated, hardworking, spiritual, an animal lover. He would light up a room with his smile, his laugh and his ability to talk a blue streak. His family was so proud of the man he became.
