Mr. Ryan Lucas Kargela, son of Kim Kargela and Tim Suber and lifelong resident of Gaylord for twelve years, passed away at home on March 23, 2017. Beloved by family, friends, and classmates, Ry Guy was known for his radiant smile, boisterous belly laughs, generous spirit, and unvanquished attitude.
Ryan’s imagination and sense of humor made everyday activities an adventure. He loved attending school, reading, swimming, telling jokes, snort laughing, chasing his cats, going to plays and musicals, being onstage, eating in restaurants, talking about 6th grade camp, watching and acting out movies, and traveling. He especially enjoyed visiting his Yooper Family and Southern Family.
Sweet Ryan was a joyful soul blessed with loving parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, classmates, teachers, and doctors. We are all lucky to have shared in the life of this exuberant toughie.
