Ryan was an avid hunter. He enjoyed time spent outdoors with his family and friends, often in search of turkey, deer, or duck. Hunting is in the Montgomery blood. He never met a stranger and was often seen with a big smile. He had an endearing spirit that brought him many friends. Children loved him and some nicknamed him “My Ryan”. To settle any arguments, his family loving referred to him as “Our Ryan”.
Ryan enjoyed playing baseball through high school. Ryan was a 2007 graduate of McNairy Central High school and obtained a degree in Precision Manufacturing and Machining Technology from Northeast Community College in 2016. He was employed by Homestretch Furniture Maker in Nettleton, Ms.
