RYAN DERUYTER March 11, 1935 ~ April 11, 2014 Ryan deRuyter was born in The Hague, Holland, March 11, 1935. As a cook/baker in the Merchant Marines on a Dutch freighter, Ryan was on relief and going home when he met his future wife, Rhea (also from The Hague) in 1956 aboard the ship Ryndam on the Atlantic Ocean somewhere between New York and Amsterdam. Rhea's family immigrated to the USA in 1954 and she was returning to visit family. The two spent a couple of weeks together then went to the US consulate to request immigration papers for Ryan to go to the USA and were told it would take two years to get a green card. He kept working while waiting and the two wrote love letters. Ryan arrived in California in 1958. Several months later they married and moved to Orange County to raise their family; first, a son Jerry; two years later twins, Debbie and Yvonne. He worked at several major bakeries and was the pastry chef at Disneyland. In 1975 they moved to Hazel Dell, WA and he was employed as a baking instructor at Clark College. In 1978 they found their dream home; 5 acres in Hockinson. For 17 years they worked their property raising cattle, hogs and chickens, and a vegetable garden. In 1989, due to medical reasons, they sold the farm and moved to east Vancouver. They spent the next 24 years RV camping, traveling to visit friends and family, gardening and enjoying retirement. Ryan passed away peacefully at home of natural causes with family at his side. He is survived by his lovely wife, Rhea; son, Jerry (Andrea); twin daughters, Debbie (Doug) Goins and Yvonne Klodt; three grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
