Ryan Paul Canales

January 7, 1991-July 3 2017

After a long and painful battle with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Ryan Paul Canales is finally running free and traveling the world as he so much wished he could do.

He lived for sports, the Utah Jazz and New England Patriots were his favorite teams. You could tell the second you walked into his room, his walls were covered in Jerseys, hats, collectibles, signed memorabilia, and all things to do with sports and his teams. He had a passion for food and documentaries and dreamed of visiting all the countries and states to learn their cultures and taste the food. He loved music and would blast Phil Collins – In The Air Tonight daily, his taste in music was impeccable.and we enjoyed singing along with him. Ryan had a heart of gold and one amazing personality. He was smart, funny, strong, brave and an overall amazing person.

He left behind his mother, Donna Beckstead Canales, his sisters and brothers-in-law Kelli and Justin Henderson, Leesa and Tony Kratzer, Lindsey and Nate Erickson, Chelsey and Larry Barney, His grandparents, Joyce and Paul Beckstead. his nieces and nephews, David, Kassidi, Lilly, Abagail, Jimmy, Oakley and Wesley. A special thanks go to his primary caretakers who loved Ryan so deeply and unconditionally, Donna Beckstead Canales (Mother), Chelsey Barney (Sister) and Larry Barney (Brother-in-law).

The family would also like to thank Harmony Home Healthcare staff, Jordan, Linda, Barbara, Crystal, and Kristy.
