Obituary of William D. Ryan

Please share a memory of William to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

William David Ryan, age 59, of Monroe, passed away in his home on January 26, 2024, while battling lung cancer. He was born in Belfast, Maine on November 7th, 1964 to Willard and Pauline Ryan.


He is predeceased by his parents and survived by his wife Laurie Ryan and their children. His son, Chad Ward and his significant other Ashley Duclos and their children Brody, Aubree, and Avery Ward; daughter Amanda, husband Augustus Dunphy and their children Matthew Dimmit, Logan and Jared Dunphy; son Devin, wife Emily and their child Melodee Ryan.

His family: brother John Ryan, sister Louise and husband Curtis Wagoner, sister Mary and husband Chris Kinney, sister Diane and husband David Council, along with many nieces and nephews. His lifelong friends: Ted Reed, Edward Comeau, and Dwayne Porter. 


Everyone knew William as Willie or Will. If you ever met Will, there’s a good chance he left a big smile on your face, especially with his infectious laugh. He was a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy but one occupation he was really known for was a truck driver. He was an avid outdoorsman; he loved to hunt and fish.  But most of all he loved his family and friends. He will be greatly missed but will live on in the hearts and memories of those who loved him. 

His celebration of life will be held at noon on March 2, 2024, in the Jackson Community Center.
