Ryan was born Feb. 23,1992, in Denver, the son of Paul and Patty Rezac.
He graduated from Southwest Early College in Denver in 2010. He dedicated his life to helping others by becoming an emergency medical technician and striving to complete his paramedic training. Although a Colorado boy at heart, he chose to move back to Gering so he could spend time with his grandparents during their golden years.
He became a corrections officer at the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center and found a new passion and a new way to help others. He was easy to talk to and would listen with a kind ear and an open heart. He was active in emergency communications with ham radio (KE0PDY).
He had a love for computers, technology and science. He was a dedicated and loving uncle.
Ryan is survived by his parents, Paul and Patty (Ibach) of Gering; siblings Kendall (Lindsey) Rezac and Darci (Keith) Crow; nieces Katelyn and Kylie Rezac and Makena and Treva Crow; grandparents Roger and Marilyn Held and Theresa Rezac; and aunts, uncles and cousins.
