The world became a little darker on Saturday, January 12th, 2019, when Ryan Alexander Audie, 23, left us to start his next journey.
Ryan was loved by everyone who met him. His infectious smile, joyous laugh, and unending humor were enough to win anyone over. Ryan had a spark and passion for art and music that he would share with anyone. He was a light in many people's lives and he will be dearly missed.
A member of the Disney Springs Benihana crew, Ryan loved cooking, both at work and at home. He enjoyed playing Dungeons And Dragons and a myriad of video games. You could often find him enjoying the cold morning air on the porch, sipping tea and getting lost in his thoughts.
Ryan is survived by his beloved daughter, Anastasia; his mother, Heidi; father, Kevin; brothers Chris and Lucas; grandmothers, "Oma" and "Nana"; grandfather, "Gramps"; sister-in-law, Emma; girlfriend, Kelsie; ex-wife, Sia; a small army of uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, and nephews; his second moms, Kimberly and Valerie; and the sisters he never asked for, Olivia, Katie, Brinna, and Meagan.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, "Opa", and his Uncle, Peter.
Ryan's legacy will be carried on and he will be in our hearts always and forever.
A memorial service celebrating his life will be held Friday, January 18th at 11 am, at the Disney Springs Benihana.
