It is with broken hearts, we announce the passing of our beautiful boy Ryan William Smitas, age 28 of Stratford. Loving son of Ed and Pam Smitas, loving brother of Lauren and Christian. Grandson of Don Smith and Leo Smitas, nephew of Luanne Smith and his cousins; Jodi, Noah and Naomi. Predeceased by his grandmother Barbara Smith. Ryan will be fondly remembered by his dear friends, Britt Jessop, Jenny Robertson, Dan Myers and too many to mention who gave unending love and support to Ryan.
Love You ForeverWe would give our lives to have you back, said his mom and dad
I know you would, said their son.
We cry each night for you, said his mom and dad.
And I catch all of your tears, said their son.
We wait for the day that we can see you again, said his mom and dad.
Close your eyes and you can see me, said their son.
You are the first people who loved me and you are the first ones I loved.
You were always there when I needed you and you always knew when I needed a hug.
I am here for you now, mom and dad in your heart and in your soul.
I did not take your heart with me, instead I left mine with you to hold.
One day I will take your hands and lead you to paradise.
But until then my beautiful mom and dad,
When you want to see me,
You only need to close your eyes.
Love You Forever Ryan, from Mom and Dad, Lauren and Christian. A celebration of Ryans life will take place on Thursday, September 7, 2017 from 6-9 p.m., at the Stratford Country Club, 53 Romeo St North, Stratford. In lieu of flowers and as expressions of sympathy, donations would be appreciated for a Memorial Bench in Ryans memory, which would be placed in the Old Grove; a setting that Ryan connected with life and nature. To remember and honor Ryan, take a moment to hug your child, grandchild, friend, walk in the woods for a moment, an hour or a day, this is what Ryan would have wanted. Time waits for no one. Condolences and donations (cheques payable to Young Memorials) may be made through the W.G. Young Funeral Home, 430 Huron Street, Stratford. 519.271.7411.
