Ryan Cimmeron 'RC' Coler began his arrival on a cool night with bright, perfect starshine, and proceeded to bring spring with him on April 15, 1976. He left us entirely too soon on June 1, 2019.

In high school, Ryan was skilled at basketball until his knees made it too difficult to play. Ryan moved on to track for the shotput and discus, and excelled at that as well. He was a gifted oboe player, and was even accepted for the Marine Corp Orchestra and offered a full-ride scholarship to MSU-Billings. After two weeks of classes, Ryan decided college wasn’t for him and moved on to new things.

Ryan's parents should have seen Ryan’s future in cars with how focused he was as a child playing in the dirt with his curly hair, tanned cheeks, and blue eyes that could make people stop in their tracks even into adulthood. Ryan got his start at Prestige Toyota and would move through various parts departments, being an employee who was greatly desired. In so doing, Ryan made a multitude of friends and acquaintances, all of which he appreciated probably more than he could express.

Ryan requested that there be no services, so we will simply say: Ryan is survived by his parents, Sue and Shan Coler, and was preceded in death by Cashew and Backfire, his beloved cats. If people who knew and loved Ryan would like to show up for a beer and to reminisce, please feel free to find yourself at Thirsty Street on June 15, 2019, from 3-5 p.m.

In lieu of flowers or cards, please send a couple dollars to Second Chance Sheridan Cat Rescue or a mental health organization of your choosing.
