With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our beloved son Ryan John Dale Brunetta on October 1, 2021. He was born on September 24, 1979, and was such a joyful time in our lives.

He was a son with a heart full of love and caring for his family and friends, especially for his sons Bradley, Anthony and his wife Ellee.

A truly compassionate man, willing to lend hope and a helping hand to anyone who was in need.

Ryan had a soft spot in his heart for animals and adopted many animals throughout his life.

He was a man with a strong work ethic and was always trying to provide the best he could for his family. Batching concrete was his work passion and he always said he had cement in his blood.

Ryan had a strong love for the outdoors and enjoyed numerous fishing and hunting trips with his Dad, his Nonno and uncles and cousins.

Ryan was predeceased by his Nonno, Ernest A. Brunetta; and his grandparents Donald N. Roth and Vivian F. Roth.

He will be greatly missed by his wife Ellee; his sons Brad and Anthony; his parents Dale and Colleen Brunetta; Nonna Loretta Brunetta; sister Holly Johnson, husband Jeremy and nephew Eli; plus numerous Aunts and Uncles, Clare and Beverly Brunetta (Paul, Danielle, Michael), Dawn Marie Ash (Jennifer, Heather), Ernie and Michelle Brunetta (Ashey, Dan, Ava), Vicki and Wayne Jewell (Shanna, Heather, Adam), Don and Patti Roth (Randy), Glenda and Ken Hatfield (Michelle, Derrick), Randi and Ray Gladu (Neil, Brandon), Diana and Lauri Kangas, Jamie and Tina Roth (Tasha, Sara).

Our family is a circle of strength and love…

Our family with every birth and every union the circle grows, our family is a circle of strength.

Every crisis faced together makes the circle stronger.
