Ryan Eric London, beloved son, brother, uncle, and friend, peacefully left this life on February 3, 2024, and is now in heaven with Jesus. He was born on April 24, 1975, in Orlando, Florida. Ryan's joyful spirit, infectious laugh, and playful nature touched the hearts of everyone fortunate enough to know him. His mischievousness added a delightful spark to every moment shared with him.
Ryan had a zest for life that was evident in everything he did. He cherished his family above all else and always found joy in spending time with them. Some of his fondest memories were swimming at grandma's pool and going to Table Rock Lake. Ryan's love for music led him to sing boisterously at church while inspiring others with his devotion.
A good day for Ryan would include indulging in his favorite treats – potato chips with Tabasco sauce, hot Cheez-Its, and pizza. These simple pleasures brought him immense delight.
He graduated from Bowie High School in Arlington, Texas, Special Education program in 1996. Among his favorite pastimes were reading Curious George books, listening to audiobooks, and coloring.
Ryan loved mowing the yard and would do it every day if the grass would grow fast enough. Playing Uno brought out his competitive spirit, and he would often make up his own rules to secure the win. He loved taking walks, visiting the zoo with grandma, and playing catch in the backyard with Dad. When it came to sports, Ryan was a dedicated fan of KU basketball – cheering enthusiastically as he proudly wore red and blue.
In 2003, Ryan moved into his new home at Starkey Inc. He loved his Starkey family and enjoyed the daily work program. The London Family is eternally grateful for the dedicated staff who loved and served him over these last 21 years.
Ryan was preceded in death by his grandparents, Charles & Vera London and Don & Beulah Shaw. He leaves behind a lifetime of cherished memories with his parents, Roger & Carol London, his loving sister Tricia Buckingham and husband Mark, his sister Stephanie London, and his nephews Cole Buckingham and wife Analise, Luke Buckingham, and Brett Buckingham.
