    He was born April 6, 1983 in Vernal Utah to Glade Henry and Debra Fausett Mitchell. Ryan was raised in the Uintah Basin, he graduated from Union High School in May 2002.
    Ryan was a great kid and always had a story to tell, he loved to fish, hunt and hike.  He went on many backpacking trips with family into the High Uintahs, he also loved the mountains of Montana and Wyoming. His backpacking trips included the Chain Lakes, Fox Lake, Fox Lake in Wyoming and Mystic Lake Montana (the family favorite). Ryan hiked the Beaten Path Trail from above Cooke City Wyoming across the Absaroka/Beartooth range 26 miles to East Rosebud Montana.
    Ryan loved family and family get-togethers, he talked about them for months.  He loved to walk and was always needing new shoes.
