Ryan Edward Rofkahr, a successful business owner and lifelong resident of the state of Kansas passed away unexpectedly on April 9, 2021 at the young age of 40.

Ryan was born at Lawrence Memorial Hospital on December 1, 1980. He graduated high school from Spring Hill High in 1999 and went on to study business at JCCC, and Fire Science/EMS at the University of Kansas. He was an EMT at Leavenworth County EMS, and eventually took over the family business at Gutter Werks LLC.
He and Fran Gibson welcomed their beautiful daughter into this world on December 20, 2008.
Ryan was a devoted father and strived to show his daughter every day that she was the most important person in his life. He was an avid fisherman and loved the water. He loved all sports but especially loved watching the KU Jayhawks and The Kansas City Chiefs.
His smile lit up a room and was always able to find the silver lining in any situation. He was upbeat, funny and a person that everyone always wanted to be around. He was a loyal Father, Brother, Son, and friend. He will be deeply missed and his memory will always live.
“So when tomorrow starts without me
don't think we're far apart. For every time you think of me I'm right here in your heart.”

To Ryan’s family. Our hearts are beyond sad and have been so weighted since hearing of Ryan’s death. It is so hard to imagine life without this precious human being present. We miss him. We loved him. We enjoyed him. He was our family since the day he was born. We are thankful for Ryan’s legacy and for his love of family and friends. For his incredible sense of humor and laughter and stories like he could tell. We ask today that God gives you his peace and comfort during this very difficult time. We love all of you.
