Burley, Idaho – Ryan Jerry Willes, age 16, left us suddenly on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013, following an accident. He was an energetic, fun-loving young man, anxious to experience all that life had to offer, and he will be greatly missed.
He is the son of Kelly and Jennifer Willes, brother to Eric, Kyle, Natalie and Tyler, and grandson of Jerry and Beverly Shaw (Burley) and Ron and LuJane Willes (Murray, Utah). We will most remember Ryan’s beautiful brown eyes, ever-present smile, and well-developed sense of humor that brought joy to all. He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served honorably in all his duties. He loved racing on Xbox (making online friends throughout the world), singing, drawing, and supercars, and never missed an opportunity to share his passions with everyone he knew.
The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 8, at the Burley LDS West Stake Center, 2420 Parke Ave., with Bishop Jeff Harris officiating. Burial will be in the Pleasant View Cemetery.
Friends may call from 6 until 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Rasmussen Funeral Home, 1350 E. 16th St., in Burley, and from 10 until 10:45 a.m. Friday at the church.
