Ryan was born on October 6th, 2004 in Stillwater, Oklahoma to Tammy Nguyen Keeler and Rick Keeler. He lived in Coyle, Ok, with his beloved Aunt, Janice Hopkins and was a student at Coyle Public Schools. He was a polite young man that you could always rely on to help if you asked. After meeting new people, they always commented on his excellent manners and sweet personality. His friends will miss how he was always there for them and made any stressful situation better.
Ryan was always up for a fishing trip and went frequently with his Papa Nguyen over the years. They often brought back catfish, bass, and stripers to cook up at home. When he wasn’t fishing with his Papa, he would go with his aunt Laura on the family farm in Coyle and fish the different ponds. When he wasn’t out fishing, Ryan could be found playing video games online with friends, hunting for the next big deer, or spending time with family and friends.
Survivors include his parents, Tammy Nguyen Keeler and Rick Keeler; special aunt, Janice Hopkins of Coyle, OK.; uncle, Tony Nguyen of Perry, OK; three aunts, Angela Nguyen Breunig, Louise Sproles, and Laura Hopkins of Coyle, OK; a special great Aunt, Lau Nguyen of Perry, OK; other great aunts and uncles, Phan Nguyen, Huynh Nguyen, Phung Nguyen, Oanh Nguyen, Kim Uan Nguyen, Lisa Thuy Nguyen, and Bach Yen Nguyen; five close cousins, Amy Nguyen of Dallas, TX., Alex Fowble-Nguyen of Perry, OK, Joseph and Riley Nguyen of Florida, and Eddie Hopkins of Coyle, OK; many other cousins and extended family.
