Ryan Patrick Cawley passed away on April 30, 2011.
Ryan was born on January 28, 1981, a most welcome gift to his parents, Michael and Debra. Ryan lived his first seven years in the community of Chester with his younger brother Kevin and sister Kacey. In 1988 the family moved to Lemoore, where Ryan touched many lives. He graduated from Lemoore High School in 2000 with the honor of earning his academic letter and serving as Lemoore High School Prom King.
In 2005, Ryan achieved the goal of living in his own apartment; however, health issues brought him to live long-term with new friends in the Woodland Residential Group, home for adults with disabilities. He and his dad enjoyed going to movies every Sunday afternoon, and he never missed a WWE Monday Night RAW. Ryan’s extended family will deeply miss his good nature and regular phone calls.
Ryan is survived by his dad, Michael Cawley of Davis, and mom, Debra Cawley of Hanford; brother Kevin (Louann) and sister Kacey; grandmother Dorothy Cawley; uncles Bill (Leeann) Cawley of Benicia and John (Tracy) Thomas of Eureka; aunt Kathy (David) Anderson of Pioneer; cousins Billy, Lori, Patrick, Kristin, Michael and Jack; and niece Makayla. He is preceded in death by his grandparents William J. Cawley, Walter and Elsie Thomas, and uncle Patrick Cawley.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 14, at Passalacqua Funeral Chapel, 901 W. Second St., Benicia. For details, visit http://www.passalacquafuneralchapel.com.
