He enjoyed lots of leisure activities, including golfing, fishing, and being part of a woodworkers club where they built toys for underprivileged children. Bob was a hardworking and caring man. He was a committed Christian and helped establish the Balboa Baptist Church in Hot Springs Village, AR.

It's with a heavy heart we announce the passing of our brother, Timothy P. Ryan. Born in Chicago to Rita and Jack Ryan. Fond brother of John (Marsha), Terrance (Jan) and sister Mary Rita. Uncle and great uncle to many nieces and Nephews, and also survived by many loving cousins. We would be remiss if we failed to mention the bevy of friends that have become more like family throughout Tim's lifetime. Retired Honolulu Police Officer, veteran of U.S. Army's 25th Infantry (Tropic Lightning), volunteer for Whitewater Lakes Lions Club and friend to all animals. Said to have a heart of a lion, that heart suddenly stopped Feb. 12th 2022. He will be missed. The Wisconsin celebration of life will be held June 11th 11 to 4 at the Whitewater Lake Lion's Club. Please bring along photos to share and memories to tell. As per Tim's wishes, a mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Augustine by-the-sea in Honolulu, Hawaii on October 14th followed by inurnment at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl). In lieu of flowers, Tim's favorite charity was Father Flanagan's Boys Town in Nebraska: 402-498-3025. Thank you all for your support during this sad occasion.
