RYAN ALAN SCONYERS Cedar Rapids Ryan Alan Sconyers, 34, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, passed away Tuesday, May 22, 2018, at the Ed and Joan Hemphill Hospice Unit at St. Luke's Hospital. Per Ryan's wishes, there will be no formal services held. A gathering to celebrate Ryan's life will be 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 29, at The Legacy Center at Murdoch-Linwood, Cedar Rapids. Please wear your Cubs and Hawkeye gear in Ryan's honor. Ryan was born May 6, 1984, in Cedar Rapids to Cheryl Rawson Gantt and Randy Sconyers. He attended Kennedy High School and later achieved an associate's degree in mechanical engineering from Kirkwood Community College. He later worked as an insurance agent for Geico. Ryan was a skilled outdoorsman who loved fishing, boating and camping. He enjoyed playing baseball, and was a member of the Cedar Hills Booster Club. Ryan loved to root for the Iowa Hawkeyes and his Chicago Cubbies (Go Cubs Go!). He was a friend to many, and will be missed by those who loved him. Ryan is survived by his mother, Cheryl (Jamie) Gantt of Mount Vernon; father, Randy Sconyers of Cedar Rapids; sisters, Stephanie Sconyers of Cedar Rapids and Tiffany Sconyers of Mount Vernon; nieces, Lexieah, Brinley, Karsyn and Emma; grandparents, Larry and Sharon Rawson of Cedar Rapids; and many special aunts, uncles and cousins. He also is survived by close family friends, Matthew Kruse, Tony Perez, Troy Ciha and Josh Mertka; and, for a brief time, a very special little boy named Landon. Ryan was preceded in death by his grandparents, Lois and Junior Sconyers; and great-grandparents, Nanny and Papa Rawson. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Ryan's name may be made to the Ed and Joan Hemphill Hospice Unit at St. Luke's Hospital. The family would like to thank Val at St. Luke's ICU and all of the caregivers at St. Luke's Hospice who comforted Ryan and his family in his last days.
