Our amazing boy, Ryan Andrew Rhodes, of Camas, WA, left this world on June 12th, 2017. He was only 27 years old. Ryan was born a "Little Light-fighter" at Fort Ord, CA on March 21st, 1990. The son of Richard and Karilyn "Nini" Rhodes, he was a constant joy in their lives. Ryan attended Camas schools up until his Senior year where he attended Portland Christian High School. Ryan's first love was basketball; remembered by his neighbors for the constant dribbling and shooting in the driveway late into the night. He excelled at basketball all through his life and ended his career as Captain of the 2008 State Champion PCS Royals.
As an adult, Ryan's hobbies included snowboarding, golf and he was an avid weight lifter.
What everyone will remember most was Ryan's quick smile, friendliness, and sense of humor, which could affect even the most dour of individuals.
His personality touched so many; whether it be customers of his fathers paint business, co-workers and customers at Hooligans Sports Bar, teachers, friends or family, Ryan exuded an overall love of people that will be forever missed and mourned by everyone that ever met him or knew him.
Ryan will be sorely missed not just by his parents but family members; former spouse and friend, Chrissy Rynveld-Rhodes; brothers, Stephen Rhodes of Mesa, AZ and Bradley Rhodes of Camas, WA; sisters, Shannon Tremblay of Jaffrey, NH and Alexis Rhodes of Camas, WA; his grandmother, Nellie Larreategui of Camas, WA; many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews; and friends, Krista Campbell, Sarah Gant and Joseph Pomerville.
A Celebration of Ryan's life will be held on Sunday, June 25th at 2 p.m. at Camas High School Auditorium.
Donations in memory of Ryan may be sent to: Dare to Live Ministry at Living Hope Church, Vancouver, WA.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Brown's Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
