In loving memory of Michael (Mick) Ryan

On Friday 12th November, Judy Mann will row and ride and swim and walk in memory of Mick Ryan, her husband, who died 29th August 2021 from CJD.

“I will be thinking of him and thanking all our family and friends who have already generously donated to CJD research in Australia. Please join me in remembering Mick on 12th November and if you would like to donate to research it will be gratefully appreciated.”

Michael (Mick) Ryan
06.03.1943 – 29.08.2021

Mick was a wonderfully loyal, loving, clever, kind and compassionate son, brother, uncle, husband, father, grandfather, and friend.

He had a very funny quick and sharp wit with twinkling eyes, a great big ready smile and a good chuckle to accompany his interactions with us all.

He had an enquiring, analytical mind and loved research and contributing to the body of knowledge.

He thoroughly enjoyed his food and good red wine.

And he loved cryptic crosswords.

Goodbye dear friend.
