Ryan Thomas Sarver

Ryan Thomas Sarver, 29, of Grants Pass, Oregon, passed away on Wednesday, March 17, 2021.

Ryan was born on August 21, 1991, to Tina Waldron and Terry Sarver in Grants Pass, Oregon, where he grew up. When Ryan was young, he raced BMX for four years and even achieved #8 in the State of Oregon! He attended middle school at Fleming and high school at North Valley, where he made many close friends. He is described as always having a smile on his face and was willing to help anybody he met. Ryan had a passion for being in the mountains, riding dirt bikes, or just driving with no destination, simply finding appreciation of the scenery. In addition to the mountains, Ryan loved fishing, rock hunting, riding scooter, shooting guns, and especially loved spending time with his daughter, family, friends, and his inseparable canine companion, Myah.

Ryan is preceded in death by his great-grandparents, Frank and Lucile Walden, Hazel and Charles Branham, and Mary and Raymond Waldron Sr.; aunt, Tina Wheeling; cousin, Cambree Wheeling; and uncle, Willis Sarver Jr.
