Ryan Andrew Rhodes
March 21, 1990 ~ June 12, 2017

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 Ford Ord, CA, on March 21st, 1990. The son of Richard and Karilyn “Nini” Rhodes, he was a constant joy in their lives. Ryan attend 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 father’s paint business, co-workers and customers at Hooligan’s 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 Jeffrey, 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, 2 p.m., at Camas High School Auditorium.
