It is with deep regret and personal sadness that I report the death today, Sunday 8th January 2017, of Mr John (Hugh) Ryan, Lisieux, Croke Street, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.
A man of immense commitment and dedication within the Thurles area and further afield; the passing of Mr Ryan, while in the loving care of the Matron and Staff of Padro Pio, Nursing Home, Holycross, will most surely be observed by Thurles residents as having lost not just a great friend but also a committed community benefactor.
Predeceased by his loving wife Nuala, Mr Ryan’s death is most deeply regretted by his family Fiona, David, Paula, Mark and Deirdre; grandchildren Luke, Grace, Sarah, Mel, and Liam; daughters-in-law Mary and Mervi; son-in-law Brian; sister Eileen; brothers Dan and Paddy; sisters-in-law; brothers-in-law; nieces; nephews; extended relatives; the Scouting Community, neighbours and a multitude of friends.
The earthly remains of Mr Ryan will repose in Hugh Ryan’s Funeral Home, Slievenamon Road, Thurles, on Tuesday 10th January from 5.00pm to 7.30pm, to arrive at the Cathedral of The Assumption, Thurles at 8.00pm.
Requiem Mass will take place on Wednesday 11th January at 11.00am, followed by interment afterwards in St Patrick’s Cemetery, Moyne Road, Thurles.
Farewell old friend.
