Ryan was born on December 7, 1978, in Newton, KS to Randy Zohn and Rebecca Ballard. Ryan attended Newton High School and graduated in 1997. His love for being a cowboy started when he joined FFA. He married Doree on December 31, 2008. The two lived in Kansas, Nebraska, and most recently, Colorado.
Ryan was a devoted cowboy and he was happiest when he was on the back of a horse, working cattle. Ryan shared that love with his nephews by making sure they had cowboy boots and ropes! He was a kind, generous, and loving person who cared for many.
He will be greatly missed.
