Obituary of Ryan Thomas Minch

Ryan Thomas Minch, 48, passed away on August 17, 2023, at his home in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Ryan was born the only son of Kenneth Minch Jr. and Carol (McDermott) Minch on May 11, 1975, in Amsterdam, New York. He was a 1993 graduate of Fonda Fultonville Central School and attended SUNY Brockport, graduating in 1997 with a degree in Criminal justice. Following graduation, he moved to Charlotte, North Carolina where he worked at LPL Financial in their Compliance Department.

Ryan was a lifelong and an avid sports fan. He was always rooting for his favorite teams: The New York Yankees, The Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and most notably, the New Orleans Saints football team. One of his most memorable experiences was an invitation to be on the sidelines with the team during an away game in Charlotte. Ryan also enjoyed fishing, hunting, and playing golf. He was an avid participant in local dart and pool leagues throughout Charlotte. There is no doubt that Ryan’s favorite thing was his 3 fur babies: Kane, Coco, and Nugai.

Ryan was a caring and wonderful friend to many. He had a heart of gold and cared deeply about his friends and family. We will all miss him.

Ryan was predeceased by his mother, Carol (McDermott) Minch; maternal grandparents, Lorraine Minch and Kenneth Minch Sr.; paternal grandparents, Thomas F. “T” McDermott and June McDermott; Uncles Timothy Minch and William B. McDermott. He is survived by his father, Kenneth Minch Jr. and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and his beloved dogs.

A graveside service open to family and friends will be held on Sept. 16, 2023, at 11:00 am at the St. Mary’s Cemetery located at 39 E Main St., Ft. Johnson NY, just west of Amsterdam NY.

Memorial contributions can be made to the Humane Society of Charlotte North Carolina, 2700 Toomey Ave, Charlotte, NC, 28203 or the FFCS Football Alumni Association.
