RYAN ANGELONE DELEZENE
Semper sarai amato
Mai sarai dimenticato
Per semper con noi
Our beloved son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend, Ryan Angelone Delezene, passed away on Friday, July 29, 2022, at the age of 24. Ryan was born on March 24, 1998, in Albuquerque, New Mexico and raised in Austin, Texas.
Ryan thirsted for life and was just beginning to experience all it had to offer. He was taking college courses to pursue a computer science degree while he was also working as a tradesman apprentice. Ryan was also deeply spiritual and enjoyed learning martial arts, going to the gym, and practicing meditation. He was an avid fisherman known for his enormous heart and listening ear. We are so proud of Ryan and everything he worked so hard to accomplish.
Ryan had a quiet and gentle way about him and a quick but stealthy sense of humor. He had a great smile that was always lit up the room, and he would do anything for anyone. He believed strongly in second chances and never spoke a bad word about another person. Always uplifting and encouraging, Ryan had an other-worldly talent to make others feel special and truly heard, and he tried to make each conversation a positive experience. He never passed judgment and had a forgiving spirit and was committed to holding a safe and loving space for others even while he was carrying struggles of his own. With his perfectly luminous smile and friendly sense of humor, Ryan was a bright beacon of hope, courage, and goodness to all those around him. His sweet, vibrant laugh will echo in our hearts forever, and the memory of his bright smile, quick wit, and caring and sensitive spirit will never be forgotten.
Ryan leaves behind his parents Elizabeth Angelone and Richard Delezene, Jr. and is also survived by his brother and best friend, Justin Angelone and Natalia Angelone, his brother and sister Connor and Sarah; grandparents Karen and Dan Steed, Gayla Angelone, Michael and Dora Angelone; uncles and aunts Janell, Lynda and Mark, Thomas and Kirsten, Christine and Alex. Ryan is also survived by his niece Aubrey and nephew Jackson, and cousins Nathan, Sophia, Lily and Noah, as well as many other family members and friends. He is predeceased by his great-grandmother, Grace Elizabeth “Betty” Boruff.
