November 12, 1979 ‒ August 21, 2020
MANSFIELD: Ryan Nichols, 40, of Mansfield passed away at home Friday, August 21, 2020 due to a brain injury.
Ryan was born November 12, 1979 to Lisa Bandagski and William Nichols in Mansfield.
Ryan was an outgoing and generous guy who would give you the shirt off his back. He was a talented artist and loved doing tattoos. Extremely funny, he loved to joke around. His dream was to help young people with addiction problems. He was working hard to overcome his injuries and had a “never give up attitude”. His smile could melt your heart.
He is survived by his children: Elijah, Searena, Aaron, and Ryalin; grandsons Nolen and Oaklin; mother Lisa; brothers William and Ronnie; and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
His family would like to extend a special thanks to Ryan’s aunt and uncle Laura and Mike Hill; cousins Tarry “Flea” Taylor and Melissa Webb, Mark Stover, Jerrie Stamper, and Aunt Meme.
He was preceded in death by his father William; sister Ashley; aunt Karen; and maternal grandparents.
Visitation will be held Friday, August 28, 2020 from 5-7 pm in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home. Ryan’s cousin Joey Nichols will share memories.
