It’s with heavy hearts and deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Ryan James Lariviere on February 26/2024 in Edmonton Alberta at the age of 38.

Ryan is survived by his two sons whom he loved dearly Sean and Lucas Lariviere and his two step daughters Meghan and Emma Pearson.. All of his many friends and family in Windsor Ontario and Edmonton Alberta

Ryan was an energetic and confident man that loved life. He was always positive and fiercely protective. When he entered a room his presence was known. He could talk to anyone with pride and amazing humour, no fear and strength.
When he loved someone he loved them with all his heart. He was forgiving and would say it how he saw it. If you were lucky to know him you were lucky enough to have a friend for life.

“If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again”
Till we meet again ❤️

  1. I was a fellow elementary schoolmate of Ryan’s in the year younger. Many memories of the teen and school dances, hanging out around Remington Park. He always brought a smile to people’s faces, made us laugh, and always so kind. He was always a joy to cross paths with. My deepest condolences to Ryan’s children and family.

  2. Ryan was a great man and friend to many. I didn’t know him well well, but acquaintance in high-school and nothing but kindness from him
    I’m so sorry for your loss

  3. I’m very sorry for your sudden loss of a great man, he will always be remembered as the fun outgoing guy he was.

  4. Life is full of grief, even still we allow ourselves to love other people. Don’t become jaded and saddened at the shortness of a life taken too soon, be happy for have had the chance to know and love someone as memorable as this young man.

  5. I am so very sorry for your loss! I loved Ryan very much and he was there for me when not a lot of people were! Haha we did some stupid crazy things and most def. Had our share of fights! Gosh so many times I was soo mad at him but soon as he flashed that smile of his….I couldn’t remember why I was even mad at him! It doesn’t feel like he’s gone. .I wish I would wake up tomorrow and it all one bad dream but I know its not so Ryan I love you very muchb but your forever in my heart…you better be up there waiting for me when I get there….Until we meet again!

  6. I am still trying to come to terms with how quick the world was flipped upside down. Had I known then what I now know, I would have done anything & everything to keep you from walking out of that door that day. You have left behind many who loved you and who has lost a piece of themselves within you. Your presence alone was enough to make anyone feel safe, loved and cherished. I consciously keep trying to process, accept and truly feel the emotions, but the pain is still so debilitating. I am so sorry that I couldn’t be there to protect & love you like you were for me. I will always try to show up in whichever way is needed for your family and your boys.. They really were your pride and joys.
    It completely shatters me that the good really do die young… forever waiting until next time 💗

  8. Ryan and I have lost touch over the last few years. He was a groomsman in my wedding, a roommate for a short time. I am saddened to know I shall never see you again. RC I hope you are up watching over your family and we love you.

  9. My deepest sympathies and condolences to Ryan’s kids, family and friends. My heart breaks for us all. Words can’t express the sadness and emptiness I feel. I’m lost without my best friend. He was as real as they come. His heart was full of love and he truly cared about all people. He absolutely adored his family and always had nothing but kind, loving words to say about them.

    He had such a great sense of humor and I swear, no matter how bad of a day I was having, all it took was just one silly little grin and he completely changed my mood. He was the one person that I could truly count on. If you needed him, he had your back, even if it took a few days lol he was always there. When I first met him, I remember telling him his voice reminded me of johnny depp, and that he was the coolest dude I had ever met; he told me, with the most genuinely sincere words, “well, you’re pretty cute for a bigger girl!” I honestly burst out into laughter lol. I was like, dude! Most girls are a wee bit sensitive when it comes to body image, you shouldn’t really say it so matter of fact like that lmao. He instantly went red and started apologizing and said he didn’t mean it like that, and tripped up some more on some words. We ended up just laughing our asses off that night and it became this little running inside joke between us. That was the first day I ever met him. I knew from that moment forward, there was just something extra special about him. His blunt honesty was something I really appreciated. I was lucky enough to see a very raw, emotional, passionate side to him. I saw a kind soul. Someone who truly lived his life adventurously and someone who I think, just had a lot of love to give.

    I am blessed and honored to have had a friend like Ryan in my life. He changed my life. He made me a better person and he always had some kind words of encouragement to send my way. When we hung out, it just felt so normal, natural, as if we knew eachother our whole lives. My son was lucky enough to meet him and became “Uncle Ryan”. At any given moment, Ryan was always tapping into his artistic/creative side, either printing out stuff, painting stuff, building stuff, just doing something for one of the kids in his life. He was great with kids. And another thing that impressed me so much, was the care and respect he displayed towards his kids moms. He never once had a single bad word to say about them and you just knew his heart was always in the right place.

    This world has lost an amazing person. My only comfort is that another world needed him more. Heaven needed their angel back. I have this eternal sadness and heartache that will consume a part of my soul forever. But Ryan also gave me a special sort of strength and such happy memories that i will cherish forever!

    Ryan, I am truly thankful and grateful to have called you my best friend! Your memory will always live on in my heart and I will never forget the unique bond that we shared. I love you buddy! May you rest in peace and I will see you again one day. Taker eazy bud 😘 Love, me

  10. I don’t even know what to say … Ryan , I don’t think the sun shines as bright now that you aren’t here with us. I have so many memories with you. And everytime we crossed paths it was like no time had even passed at all. You showed me your good, bad, ugly and everything in between. But your soul was truly one of a kind. You were one of a kind. I’m just happy that the last time we saw each other I got to hug you and you gave me a kiss on the forehead and we said I love you to each other. I will always love you. Thank you for always just being you. Save me a seat up there and just know that you are loved and missed

  11. May you rest in peace Ryan you were a good soul always showed love and respect I’ll always remember the conversations we had and the laughs
