In Memory of Ryan James Xenakis
Ryan Xenakis was an incredible young man whose personality was magnetic and whose smile lit up the room! The beauty of his gregarious personality was only eclipsed by the genuine kindness and huge heart that made Ryan the person he was! Amongst his favorite pastimes was to spend time with those with Special Abilities.
During his time in the Rockwood School District, and beyond, Ryan was frequently found hanging out with his friends with IDD (Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities). He felt they gave as much energy and fulfillment to him as he could possibly ever give back to them! Because of the special place in his heart for inclusion of all and fostering friendships with those that have the greatest of gifts to share with the world, Ryan’s family has requested that in lieu of flowers, to please donate to Best Buddies. Their focus, like his, is the love and inclusion for ALL!
Thank you for honoring Ryan by touching the lives of others!
