Obituary of William (Bill) Ryan, MD

William “Bill” Ryan, MD, age 61 of Whitehouse Station, NJ, died Tuesday, November 22, 2016 at home, surrounded by family and friends.

Bill loved many things: fly fishing, playing music, spending time with his family — especially his granddaughter, being in nature, and making corny jokes. Most of all, he loved being a doctor and loved his patients. He touched so many lives with his kind demeanor, thoughtful intelligence and insight, and never-ending compassion.

Dr. Ryan was a physician at Center For Family Health and Pleasant Run Family Physicians.

Dr. Ryan is survived by his parents, Bill and Peg Ryan, his wife, Annie, daughters, Whitney and Kelsea, son, Jack, his granddaughter, Adelynn, brother, Mike, and sisters, Kathleen Ryan and Theresa Dowsett.

Bill’s family is endlessly grateful for the 61 full years they had with him. A funeral mass will be held on Saturday, November 26, 2016 at 10:00 AM at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 2 Whitebridge Road, Pittstown. Friends may meet with the family at 9:00 AM until the time of the mass.

It was most important to Bill to celebrate his life with family and friends. We request everyone join us at a celebratory lunch following the mass at Kirsten’s Italian Grill, 1386 US-22 in Lebanon
