Ryan J. Farrell, age 46, of Quincy, MA, passed away on January 18, 2024, in Milton, MA after enduring long-term complications from Grand Mal Seizures. Born in Dorchester on January 23, 1977, Ryan was a spirited soul who brought joy and laughter to all who knew him.
A beloved son, father, brother, and uncle, Ryan's family was the cornerstone of his life. He was the cherished father of Mikayla, who was his pride and joy, and was survived by Mikayla’s mother of Melissa Ross of Braintree, who supported him as a co-parent and friend. He was the treasured son of Stephen Farrell of Milton, and Mary Jane and her husband Peter Winn of Plymouth. Ryan was also the loving brother of Jennifer and her husband Daniel Perry of Hanson, and Ashley Farrell of Boston. His nieces, Bella and Anna Perry, knew him affectionately as Uncle Ryan. His extended family of cousins, aunts, uncles, and a multitude of friends will fondly remember his kind and generous spirit.
Ryan's early education was completed at Blue Hills Regional School, where he graduated with the class of 1996. His dedication to hard work and community was evident through his 25 years of committed service in the Labor Union, Local 223. Ryan's strong work ethic and handy nature were well-known and respected among his colleagues and peers.
As a child, Ryan was the epitome of energy and mischief. He was known for his daring jumps off the Quincy Quarries and his achievement of becoming an Eagle Scout—a testament to his adventurous spirit and leadership. Summers were joyously spent at Old Orchard Beach, where he made countless memories with his "Summer Friends."
Ryan's love for sports was undeniable, with the Red Sox holding a special place in his heart. He enjoyed nothing more than watching a game, cheering on his team with the same passion he applied to every aspect of his life.
Those who had the privilege of knowing Ryan would describe him as loving, kind, and exceptionally handy. His ability to fix and build was only surpassed by his capacity to care for and nurture the relationships with those he held dear.
Ryan's legacy will live on through his daughter, Mikayla, who will carry forward the love and strength he instilled in her. His memory will also be perpetuated in the stories shared by his family and friends, each one a testament to the wonderful man he was.
We bid farewell to Ryan J. Farrell, a man who lived fully, loved deeply, and left an indelible mark on the hearts of many. His departure from this world is not the end of his story but a continuation of his spirit in the lives of those he touched. Ryan will be profoundly missed, yet his warmth, humor, and the lessons he imparted will continue to inspire and guide us.
As we reflect on Ryan's life, we are reminded of the beauty in cherishing every moment, embracing our loved ones, and living with the same zest and vitality that Ryan exemplified. May his soul rest in peace, and may his memory be a blessing to all.
