Obituary of Michael W Ryan
Michael W. Ryan, 49, of Highlands, NJ, passed away on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at Bayshore Community Hospital, after his long battle with renal failure. Michael was born in New York City. He became an iron worker in 2002 and was a member of Local 46. Michael enjoyed all things outdoors; the beach, fishing, hiking and camping. He loved spending time in the Catskills and Rockaway Beach. He enjoyed gardening and loved animals. Michael never met a cat he didn’t want to take home. Most of all, he loved his family and would generously give you the shirt off his back even if it meant it would leave him without one.

He leaves behind his loving girlfriend Tara Gould; his daughter Maci Gene; his mother Angela (Sarria) Bowers; his father Michael; his sister Kim (Andy) Kiely; his sister Patricia; his sister Dawn Beattie; his brother John (Amanda) Beattie; his brother William (Kim) Beattie; his step-sister Noreen (Mike) Doyle; and his many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
