Revet, Ryan Alfred James

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Ryan Alfred James Revet on Wednesday, March 8, 2023 after a courageous battle with cancer. Ryan passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side.

Ryan was born on July 31, 2003 in Brandon, Manitoba.  He resided in Brandon his entire life with his parents and brother. Ryan attended Waverly Park School and Neelin High School, graduating in June, 2021. He was employed at Heritage Co-op in Brandon until he could no longer work due to illness.

An avid dog-lover from the start, Ryan desired a career working with dogs and dreamed of one day owning his own dog daycare. Ryan loved gaming, camping and living in the moment.  He cherished time spent with family and friends. He will be forever remembered for his bravery, selflessness and unshakeable faith in his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Ryan is survived by his parents, Gerard and Angela Revet, brother Adam Revet, grandparents Marvin and Mildred Gebauer, grandmother Agnes Revet along with many cousins, aunts and uncles. He is reunited with his grandpa, Alfred Revet and great-grandmother, Emily Dodds.

The family extends sincere appreciation to Dr Ishani Samarasena, Dr Jeffrey Graham, Dr David Kristjanson  and the incredible nursing staff at the Western Manitoba Cancer Centre.  Their excellent care was a blessing to Ryan and his family.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the First Baptist Church – 3881 Park Avenue, Brandon, Manitoba on Tuesday, March 14, 2023.

Interment will follow at Rosewood Memorial Gardens.

In memory of Ryan, donations can be made to Funds for Furry Friends, the Western Manitoba Cancer Centre – 150 McTavish Avenue East, Brandon, Manitoba R7A 2B3 or to a local charity of your choice.
