Gricar Family-We are saddened to hear about Ryan’s passing last week. We will always remember his fantastic attitude and outstanding character! He was a joy to be around and always put a smile on our face. I will never forget him chirping on the hockey bench awaiting his next shift on the ice! He would give a total dissertation about what we needed to do to be successful. A true student of the game who loved hockey. As much as he loved the sport he loved his family more and was a fantastic husband, father, and son!!! We are sorry that we can’t be with you to celebrate Ryan’s life but you all are in our thoughts and prayers!
