Ryan on ovoo
This online memorial was created in loving memory of Ryan Eatmon, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign Ryan's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember Ryan forever. Ryan died in a car accident on his way to school on April 6, 2012 Good Friday. Ryan was 17 and a junior at Western Harnett High School in North Carolina. Ryan was a member of FFA, Golf , and Wrestling team. Ryan was a member of Raven Rock Presbyterian church where he was very active in the youth group, he was also a dedicated member of the Coastal Carolina Presbyterian Youth Council and served on it for 3 years.. Ryan was a very outgoing youngman and had tons of friends. He has 2 sisters Devyn and Camdyn that are heartbroken without their older brother. My husband and I are totally lost without our son. On Good Friday before my son left for school he posted this on his facebook
"On this day thousands of years ago, a man was beaten, tormented and crucified for you. He gave the greatest love for you , so that one day you all could be with him in paradise and for that I am thankful, think about that all of you who think this is just a half day of school.
My son always use to ask me how to tell people about god that didn't believe and on April 6, 2012 God used Ryan for this purpose because his facebook posting was made into a banner and hung in the commons area of his school. I have also learned in the 3 months since his death that news footage with his facebook posting was aired all over N.C. but in many other states(N.Y., S.C.,PA, MI, FL.) In the bible it says we are put here on this earth for one reason and that is to tell others about God and to get as many as we can to accept Jesus and have the reward of living with him in paradise. I believe Ryan accomplished this on April 6 and have no doubt that he heard the words we all want to hear one day "well done my good and faithful servant". WE LOVE AND MISS YOU OUR BELOVED RYNO!!!!
Spring pic 2012
Ryan loved this picture, he was so proud of it . He was letting his hair grow out and it had just started looking like he wanted it. This is the first picture he has smiled in since 7th when he got his braces. He got his braces off in November,2011. We call it his GQ picture because he thought he looked like a hollister model.
