Ryan Dean Russell
October 29, 1973 – July 20, 2020

Turner – Ryan was born in Salem, lived in Monmouth, Dallas, Salem, Portland, and Turner, OR. He completed high school in Dallas, then served in the Oregon National Guard as a Combat Engineer. Later he became a skilled general construction worker and attained his associate’s degree in Business along with personal, professional skills and talents. His hobbies included fishing, car races (sprint mostly), fantasy football, dungeons and dragons, cooking, music, friends and family. Ryan is survived by his long-time girlfriend Staci Greenup; his parents: Rick and Becky Dewar; daughter Katerina Johnson; siblings: Rick Dewar Jr., Wade Russell, and Haley Dyer; three grandchildren and many nieces and nephews he loved.

He loved the challenge and skill involved in fishing. He felt a sense of peace and tranquility while near the water.

Ryan loved spending time with his grandpa, Ed Dewar, attending car races, especially sprint car, with his dad and brother Rick Jr.

For the past twenty years he enjoyed playing fantasy football league with the same group of friends, his brother Wade and Bryan (brother-in-law), and won the last season played! He also loved playing Dungeons and Dragons with his Uncle John, brother Wade and long-standing friends for over thirty years.

He never missed a family or event, even if he was the only one who could come. He was a loyal, faithful, and true friend and family man. He was a loving father and grandfather who wanted to be involved as much as possible. He was a fearless protector of those he loved and would not hesitate to put himself in harms way. Ryan was never judgmental and was the most kindhearted and loving man anyone could wish to know. He left us all with cherished and lifelong memories. He will be greatly missed and loved but never forgotten.
