Our loving son and brother Ryan Daniel Coffay, 26, of Wilkes-Barre passed on Tuesday, May 26,2020. Ryan was born in Wilkes-Barre on May 11, 1994, he was the loving son of Daniel and Kathryn Wolfe Coffay. He grew up like most boys do, loving sports, playing baseball in the Miners-Mills Little League and participating as a Boy Scout in Pack 100 of Plains Twp. He attended local schools in Wilkes-Barre and was a graduate of James M. Coughlin and the Wilkes-Barre Vocational Technical School in 2013 where he was proud of the skills, he learned to be a mason. He loved being a mason working for Tolmac and Knolton and Sons Masonry, Clifford. The best part of working was working beside his younger brother Ethan, who is also a mason. Ryan loved working while listening to country music, or driving around in his truck just enjoying the company with him. At home Ryan was dedicated to his family. He was dependable and would always be there when you needed him the most. Especially, if it had anything to do with helping to keep the home clean. To mom, he was her Cinder Fellow and dad he was just Ry Guy. He enjoyed going camping and fishing, but he enjoyed spending time playing his PS4 at night with his friends all over the country. He was also a Philadelphia Eagles fan, just to get his dad a little upset sometimes, when they occasionally won. Ryan was also an animal lover especially of his pets Allie, Dexter, and Bentley. We will all have Ryan with us in our hearts. Our memories are the treasures that we carry of Ryan each day, let us never forget him.
