Forever loved by mother Norma Coupland and step-father Bob, brother Todd Clayton (Melanie), father Roger Clayton (Susan). Loving memories of Ryan will be always cherished by his Uncle Dave and Aunt Chris Looker, Aunt Elly and Uncle Paul Turnbull, cousins Susan Looker (Tyler Coultis), Brendan Looker (Leah Micallef), and Lindsey La Belle. He will be sadly missed by the many family friends and co-workers who cared for him so much.
Ryan was a wonderful young man, well-liked by all who knew him. Polite, personable and well spoken, he made friends so easily and made people feel good when he was around. Sadly, in spite of his constant efforts over the years, he wasn’t able to overcome the addiction that finally took him. He touched many, many lives and will never be forgotten by those who knew and loved him.
Cremation has taken place and there will be a private family memorial at a later date.
Donations in Ryan’s memory to The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), or St. Michael’s Homes, Toronto, would be appreciated.
My beautiful boy, your long struggle is over and you are now at peace. We have a special bond that will never be broken, not even in death. You never ended a phone call or a text without saying “Love you”.
From me to you – one final, loving and heartfelt “muah”.
I love you and will miss you always. Mum.
