Ryan Gile, age 26, of Vancouver, WA, was tragically killed in an automobile collision Nov. 3, 2020, on Highway 26 on his way to his construction job near Madras, OR.
Ryan was born in Eugene, OR, but spent most of his life in Vancouver. He loved being outdoors with his dog, Rusty, by his side. One of his favorite activities was to go crabbing on the Oregon coast. He also enjoyed playing youth football and baseball growing up in Vancouver. Ryan had a passion for life that included playing with his nieces and nephew, helping others in need, looking his best physically or in his newest pair of shoes, or just cracking his beautiful smile.
Ryan is survived by his mother, Wendy Gile; and father, David Gile; siblings, April Thomas, Sarah Lambert and Michael Gile, and their families; and grandparents, Tony and Marty Hufnagel of Vancouver and Dennis and Kathy Gile of Wichita, KS. Ryan was engaged to be married to the love of his life, Caitie DeJong.
A memorial service will be held this Saturday, Nov. 14, at 2 p.m. Virtual services will be available online for those who are unable to attend in person.
He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

Ryan was a very caring young man. He would always be there for any friend in need. He was a daring guy and took many risks. His life was taken too quickly. May he RIP. He will be remembered always.
