Condolence Board


  1. will miss you

  2. Our condolence to the Ryan family. Wish we all had a little more time with Ted. He was a gentle soul, he was kind, calm, and easy going. Ted will be missed. Gone but not forgotten.
    RIP Ted.

  3. Ted has been my longtime friend since high school days, and our involvement during the early years of the Youth for Christ movement in Trinidad. Our friendship continued over the past decades since we both migrated and settled in Canada. It was always a joy to get together on many occasions to reflect and reminisce on earlier years.

    Throughout all the latter years of his health struggles and challenges, he continued working and always expressed his faith in the Almighty’s grace and care for him. He personified positivity through words and actions, and right to the end lived his life with thankful optimism.
    Ted will forever remain in our hearts and memories, and will be greatly missed.

  4. I last saw Ted in Trinidad in March 2020 and, as we say, our association goes way back. We were childhood friends growing up together in Woodbrook. I was a member of the church where his father was the pastor and we were both active in the Youth for Christ ministry for many, many years. We had a lot of lively times together.
    I will remember Ted as a gentle, easygoing soul whose faith in God was steadfast until the end.
    So long brother, until we meet again.

  5. Sincere condolences to Ted’s Family from Mary Forde (Amelia).

    May God be with you all at this time of your loss.

    Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those in any sort of tribulation through the comfort with which we ourselves are being comforted by God. (2 Cor 1:3 & 4)

  6. Ted was a friend and I am sad that he has left us all so soon. God knows best and took him home before he suffered any longer. My sincere condolences to his family, especially to his friends Yasmina Hamid and Margaret Williams who have been so supportive of him, his friends in his Lodge community, and, all his friends. Rest in peace Ted.

  7. Tom & Vicki Maginley and Family

    Condolences to the Ryan family : Ted was a great family friend of ours and we will miss him greatly. His death brought out our human emotions – sorrow over his passing yet in gladness we are assured of his place in the Presence of the Lord.

  8. Deepest condolences to Teddy Ryan family. There is no words to comfort you in your loss. Until then, I am certain your strength will carry you through. May he rest in peace. Blessings to all.

  9. Teddy was an exemplar to those of us who were at QRC in the 60s. We looked up to him, and Arnim along with Brendan B, as guys we wished to be when we got older. Indeed, YFC was a formative influence for us all.

    Teddy was an optimistic soul and never stopped trying. I am happy that he never gave up. I am grateful that he made his peace with God.

    May his family find comfort in his home going. No more pain, no more suffering.

  10. RIP Teddy. The THOMPSON family from Ana Street wish all the Ryan family sincere condolences. May you be comforted during this time by knowing that Teddy is in a better place.

  11. My condolences to my cousins. May God comfort and supply everything you need.

  12. My condolences to Ted’s family. He was a kind gently person who showed care and kindness to others. He was known to many of us as “Teddy”. Our friendship goes all the way back to our involvement in Youth For Christ in Trinidad. In recent years he had been my accountant and help with income tax issues. I extend sympathy and condolences to his family. We have the assurance that one day we will meet him again as he goes to be in the presence of his Lord and Saviour.

  13. I have know teddy since he was my neighbor at 85 Tunapuna Rd. The Ryan family was a very close family to the Philip family. We were fortunate to have a neighbor like the Ryan’s. My condolences to teddy,s family and also the Ryan family

  14. My Brother David Simpson n I connected with Teddy through Youth for Christ. Dave’s clarenet malfunctioned n he opted not yo perform, but Teddy didn’t take none performance for an answer. Minutes before the introduction of artiste Teddy saved the disappointment of many by presenting my Brother with his clarinet, n there was no failure to execute. I am truly thankful to God for His Servant Teddy Ryan who have beem a Blessing to us all.

    I commend his Family to the God of All Comfort-God Rest His Soul

  15. “But just think of stepping on shore and finding it heaven, of touching a hand and finding it God’s, of breathing new air and finding it celestial, of waking up in glory and finding it home”. Rest well Teddy, see you on the other side. Patti

  16. On behalf of the Norris Ryan family we remember our dear cousin Teddy with love. We have such wonderful memories, and almost all of them center around Christ with whom Ted now is. We send our love and condolences to all of the Patrick Ryan family and to Ted’s children.

  17. To the bereaved family of Teddy; We were friends for years at Woodbrook P C. where we took part in most church activities. We used to hang out
    at his parents home where his dad Pa Ryan invented the game called crockonol, which we played in the living room of the family’s home. I remember
    our days at Claxton Bay, going with him to fetch the newly weds, and being the best man in his wedding in Canada. I will always remember him. Be
    encouraged family and may The God of all comfort comfort you all. Blessings Alvin (Olvin) Forde.

  20. Condolences to the Ryan family on Teddy’s passing. We were friends from school days attending Youth for Christ meetings with many others. We lost touch in later years, but always kept up with him through Arnim Hughes, one of his best friends. May God comfort those who mourn his loss. We will meet again.. Blessings to all.

  21. Uncle Ted, you are already missed. You will always be in our hearts. Love Nigel, Stacy, Kyle and Christyn.

  22. A gracious and loving friend whose laughter, kindness and generosity I will miss.

  23. To Gwendolyn,Rhoda, Donald and Cathrine the send off for Teddy was very
    moving tribute to his life. We can all thank
    God for parents who thought us how to service him. Even though he will be greatly missed, we can cherish the memories of the life he live and the good
    times we had. I know the Lord will give you comfort in this time of loss.
