Memorial for Ryan Lien-Shepard will be Saturday, April 6 at White Center Eagles
A memorial is planned on Saturday, April 6 from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. at the White Center Eagles (10452 15th Ave SW) for Ryan Lien-Shepard (pictured above), who passed away at the young age of 35 on Monday, March 25.
“He was taken from this world far too early,” reads an announcement. “He was a son, a brother, a uncle, a grandson, a nephew and a friend that was loved by many. He leaves behind Marla, his mom, his siblings Ciaira, Shanna, Aaron, Jocelyn, his niece, and his son Luke. Ryan’s unexpected passing has left his loving family and friends mourning and heartbroken.”
Ryan was born and raised in White Center, and went to Evergreen High School where he graduated in 1995. Ryan not only was a family friend of Burien Bark but also an employee for the past four years.
An online memorial has been set up for Ryan’s family:
“At this time we are asking for help in any way possible,” organizers said. “Please consider making a donation in any amount, great or small. Donations can be anonymous or not (your choice) and 100% will go directly to Marla’s bank account. For those of you that wish to donate directly to the family and help during this tragic time, we have set up a memorial fund in Ryan’s name.”
You can also go into Sterling Bank in Burien or Burien Bark to make a donation in person.
“Please keep this precious family in your thoughts and prayers as they process such a tremendous loss. Thank you so much for your love and support.”
