Ryan was born on August 17, 2021, to Jesse & Audrey. He fought through rare health conditions and multiple surgeries and always came out smiling. Ryan could light up a room with his smile and laugh. He loved to goof off and play hard. His best playmate was his little brother Caiden. Ryan loved to play with his cars & trucks and watch dirt bike videos. He also loved dancing to music videos about Jesus. One of the few words he said was "Bible!" Everyone who met Ryan fell in love with his unique personality and facial expressions. 

He is survived by his loving parents, Jesse and Audrey Porter; younger brother, Caiden; grandparents, David & Dawn Morrissey and James & Manissa Porter; great-grandparents, Michael & Judy Edwards, Robert & Reta Morrissey, Ed & Fran Haynes and Alberta Porter. Ryan is further survived by many uncles, aunts and cousins too numerous to list.

Ryan was preceded in death by his great grandpa, David Porter and infant brother, Mason.

Ryan's family would like to express their many thanks to family, friends, and especially their church family at Cornerstone Baptist Church for their support during this difficult time.  

Ryan was a bright light and his family will cherish his memory forever. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
