RYAN MICHAEL GLADSTONE
Ryan Gladstone was born in Spokane, Washington on February 4, 1976, the son of Mark and Sandra Gladstone. He passed away January 27, 2011 at Kadlec Medical Center.
He grew up in Kennewick and graduated from Kamiakin High School, where he played football and was an outstanding athlete. He was honored on the schoolï¿½s Wall of Fame, selected for the 1993 All-State Football Team, and named to the All-Conference Team for both offense and defense. He earned an Associate of Science degree in Fire Science from Columbia Basin College and attended Christ for the Nations Bible School in Texas.
Ryan was a Kennewick firefighter for the past three and a half years. He had a passion for firefighting. At the Washington State Firefighting Academy, his classmates honored him with the Bulldog Award for outstanding leadership, courage, integrity, flexibility, dependability and physical fitness. Academy instructors presented Ryan with the Truckee Award chrome headed ax for demonstrating the greatest speed, strength, aggressiveness, hands-on skills, and knowledge of Truckee company operations. He participated in the Scott Firefighter Stair Climb in Seattle, benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. He performed charity work for the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters Burn Foundation. Prior to firefighting, he was a Corrections Officer for Benton County and was a masterful brick mason for Ojanen Brick Art. He also owned a landscaping business.
Ryan loved his family and the good times they shared at the Oregon Coast; fishing, hunting, golfing and boating at Wallowa Lake; and four-wheeling in Dixie, Idaho. He enjoyed hiking with his children and coaching sports. Ryan had many roles in his life, but his role as a family man was the one he loved the most.
Ryan had a brotherhood of cherished friends ï¿½ the Hornets, classmates, workout buddies, firefighters and others. He touched many lives with his energy, enthusiasm, and encouragement. He was charismatic, upbeat, caring, and extremely hard-working, always ready to help a buddy or lend a hand. His warm smile and engaging presence warmed a room whenever he entered.
Ryan demonstrated a depth of knowledge and expertise for gardening, landscaping, nutrition, fitness, body building, masonry, and more. He competed in the 1999 Northwest Natural Bodybuilding Competition, earning the First Place title for Novice Men over 176 pounds. He loved to play cribbage especially with his Grandpa Wayne, and he was hard to beat.
Ryan is survived by his wife Lindsy and their children, Cade and Adaya. He is also survived by his father Mark Gladstone of Idaho Falls, ID; his mother Sandra Gladstone of Richland; his brother Nathan of Honolulu, HI; his sister Aubrey and Pat and niece Maisey Loftus of Santa Fe, NM; Steve and Jody Brown of Washington DC; and a loving extended family.
A funeral service will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Kennewick on Saturday, February 5, at 1:00 PM followed by a graveside service at Sunset Memorial Gardens and a reception at the Memories at Sunset Event Center. Einanï¿½s Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. The family invites you to express your thoughts and share your memories in the online guestbook at www.einansfuneralhome.com.
