In memory of Ryan Kargela

The Story

Mr. Ryan Lucas Kargela, son of Kim Kargela and Tim Suber and lifelong resident of Gaylord for twelve years, passed away at home on March 23, 2017. Beloved by family, friends, and classmates, Ry Guy was known for his radiant smile, boisterous belly laughs, generous spirit, and unvanquished attitude.

Ryan's imagination and sense of humor made everyday activities an adventure. He loved attending school, reading, swimming, telling jokes, snort laughing, chasing his cats, going to plays and musicals, being onstage, eating in restaurants, talking about 6th grade camp, watching and acting out movies, and traveling. He especially enjoyed visiting his Yooper Family and Southern Family.

Sweet Ryan was a joyful soul blessed with loving parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, classmates, teachers, and doctors. We are all lucky to have shared in the life of this exuberant toughie.

Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. from the Nelson Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Gaylord, Michigan.

Visitation will take place at the funeral home on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 beginning at 11 AM until the time of service.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Gaylord Intermediate School 6th Grade Camp Scholarship Fund in honor of Ryan Kargela.

Funeral Arrangements have been entrusted to Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation service, P.O. Box 1548, Gaylord, MI 49734.

Although we hadn't met Ryan but once, his love of life was felt in many conversations with his Aunts and Grandma. Ryan certainly was a lesson in Life; let PASSION and LOVE be your compass. RIP Ryan.

Sadly we never had the pleasure of meeting your precious Ryan. We've enjoyed the many stories his Grandfather shared through the years of trips to the beach, Disney World and other activities.
