Timothy R. Ryan, age 84, of Plantsville and formerly of Cheshire entered into rest on Saturday, March 19, 2022 at Meadow Mills in Hamden. He was the devoted husband of Marion (Davanzo) Ryan for over 61 years. Tim was born on March 8, 1938 in Manhattan, NY, son of the late John and Ellen (Dowling) Ryan.
He served his country with honor and pride in the US Army, and soon after his discharge he married the love of his life, Marion. Together they raised their family in Cheshire, where Tim became active in the local community, serving as President for the CHS Booster Club and raising funds for the advancement of Cheshire Athletics. He was a Youth Baseball Coach and Umpire and a member of the Knights of Columbus. Before his retirement, he worked as a Branch and Regional Manager for Chrysler Financial for over 30 years. Tim cheered for the NY Yankees and UCONN Women’s Basketball, but his favorite sporting events were those played by his children and grandchildren. His most treasured times were those spent with his family.
He is the beloved father of Chris Ryan and his wife, Tracy of Wethersfield; Robert Ryan and his wife, Laura of Wilton; and Denise Scialabba and her husband, Steve of Cheshire. Tim is also survived by his cherished grandchildren, Matthew, Ryan, Kaitlin, William, Ali, Andrew, Taylor and James; and his brothers, Thomas, John and William Ryan all of Kings Park, NY.
