Ryan M. Hale was born to Michael and Lennie Hale on February 11th, 1983 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and passed away on March 19th, 2021. Although a native of Tulsa, he moved to El Reno, Oklahoma shortly after marrying the love of his life, Maria in 2006. He dedicated his life to Jehovah in 2004 and did his best to glorify his God, so much so that even after his passing he was able to reach out to others through his letters to his neighbors. Anyone who knows Ryan, knows that his happiest times were with his family and friends. He loved to make others laugh, even if it was at his own expense.
Ryan worked in the medical field in various positions but found his passion working at Integris Baptist Medical Center in the Cath Lab as a Cardiovascular Scrub Tech. He loved his job there and all the people he worked with.
One of his greatest joys was simply being home with his wife and fur children. He was passionate about art, music, and rebuilding his motorcycle. He was great at starting projects and terrible at finishing them. He was also looking forward to restoring his father’s first car, a 1963 Chevy Impala. Although he was ornery, he had the kindest and most gentle soul. He loved animals and children and they loved him as well.
If you ever encountered Ryan, you always left with a good moment and a funny story. It was never dull in his presence. To have Ryan’s love was to have the purest and truest love of all. We look forward to the day when we get to say, “Welcome back!”
Ryan is preceded in death by his grandparents Enoch and Mary Hale and Sylvester and La Donna Archer.
He is survived by his wife Maria Hale, his parents Mike and Lennie Hale, his brothers Shane and Kevin, their wives De Anna and Kimberly and niece Bea Hale, David Marez, Joyce Gutierrez, Martha, Chad, Max and Nina Thogmartin, Sarah, Rusty, Brody and Logan Welt, Juan, Cassidy, Macario, and Isaac Marez, as well as many other beloved nieces and nephews and countless friends and family who long to see him once again.
