Memories

It was very sad to hear about the passing of George. I remember the visits he made to my parents home in Kirkland while he was stationed in Bremerton. I enjoyed hearing about the Navy and Minnesota and my dad was always excited when he could visit and talk about family and what everyone was doing and their future plans. He will be remembered in my prayers and in my thoughts. Love to all, Ron Van Ryn

Memories

Sorry to hear about George Van Ryn, I didn't know he had been ill and I hope it wasn't a lengthy illness. I was a teenager when he was stationed in Bremerton and I remember him coming over to visit on Sunday afternoons with his two pretty young daughters (who are now grown women). The last time I saw him was at the Van Ryn reunion a few years ago at the Elks Club in Faribault. We are thinking of you all and you are in our prayers. Love, Dennis, Jane, Molly, and Emma Van Ryn

Memories

George was one of my heroes growing up. His dad held a special place in my mom's family and George's service in the Navy followed that tradition. I loved hearing George talk about where the best smoked salmon could be found and his encounter with JFK. We will miss you George.
