The road may have taken you, but your spirit will forever live on. Rest in peace, biker brother, your legend will never die. Today we let go of your physical presence, but your love for the road will forever be ingrained in our hearts. A fallen rider, forever in motion in our memories. -  Anonymous

Ryan was one of life's treasures, who welcomed everyone with a great big hug. His wit and sarcasm will be missed by all because he always made everyone smile and laugh. During his 19 years of honorable service to our great country, he continued to inspire, excel, and lead. He was attached to the 7th ESB which included titles of Combat Engineer, Military Police, Combat Instructor at Quantico, Recruiter, Engineer Equipment Instructor, and Engineer Shop Leader in Okinawa. What he was destined for and most proud of was his time as Squad Leader in Fallujah during Operation Iraqi Freedom and in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. Ask anyone who served with Ryan during his deployments and they will tell you countless stories of how he loved, protected, supported, and inspired "His Marines". While stationed in Ft. Leonardwood, Missouri he met and married Kara. Together, with Ryan's stepson Mikey, they welcomed Eva Faith into the world on Feb 17, 2009. On that day, he met his third and most precious love of his life and new purpose in his life. In true Ryan fashion, he shared his love for his country, his fellow Veterans, baseball, the San Diego Chargers, fishing, the LA DOdgers, swimming, kayaking, and the Texas way of life with his "Ladybug" Eva. Ryan is survived by his parents Mike and Jan Pieraccini, sister Rebecca Sedwick, daughter Eva, stepson Mikey, brother from another mother Cullen Sedwick, Eva's mom Kara Pieraccini, Numerous Uncles, Aunts, and cousins.
