Pacific Grove Tribune, CA Jan. 4, 1946
Honored Red Cross Worker Sam Ryan Died Here Thurs.
Samuel Chrystal Ryan died suddenly Thursday morning, January 3, at his Pacific Grove home, 604 17th street. And the passing of this kindly man, who will long be remembered, ends a life of peculiar usefulness in the community, especially during the war years when he devoted hours of time to active Red Cross work. Funeral services will be held at Paul’s chapel Saturday at 2 o’clock, Rev. T.J. Barkle officiating. Inurnment will be Monterey Columbarium. A native of Kansas, Mr. Ryan had lived here for 50 years. For a long time he served as a bookkeeper in the navy, until his retirement due to heart trouble. He died at the age of 61. On coming to the Grove he was first in the plumbing business with his father and grandfather, in the Forest avenue establishment of Ryan and Chase. He is survived by two brothers in Pacific Grove, C.M. Ryan, retired, and G.H. Ryan in business. There are also three nieces and one nephew. Mr. Ryan was a member of the Monterey Bay Grange. During the war years Mr. Ryan received considerable honor in the community for outstanding war effort as a Red Cross worker for the Order of the Eastern Star at St. Mary’s church. He had to his credit 2124 hours of knitting and sewing, most of which was done in his own home. He had knitted about 100 sweaters, in addition to making hundreds of comfort bags, besides slippers and the many other Red Cross articles required for military hospitals. Mr. Ryan was very proud of his Red Cross bars, one for each 200 hours of service, and of the citation received at a recent Red Cross awards meeting in Monterey, where he was one of those to receive the silver bar, an award given for 500 hours of Red Cross work.
