Ryan Wayne Scoville age 22, of Peoria, AZ passed away on Oct. 21, 2012 in Crawfordsville, IN. Ryan was born on Nov. 17, 1989 in Phoenix, AZ, the eldest of 2 sons.
Ryan graduated from Sunrise Mountain High School in 2008 and joined the United States Marine Corps. Most men and women graduating from high school seek normal jobs mostly affiliated with business. Ryan decided to make a difference and protect his country. Not only did Ryan serve his country well, but he was also assigned to one of the most difficult, nerve racking jobs in the United States military. Lance Cpl. Ryan W. Scoville, decided not to back down from the challenge, but to follow orders with courage and confidence.
Ryan was a team leader with Weapons Company, 3rd Battalion, in the 7th Marine Regiment. Ryan’s job was to lead a group of men to safety in any given circumstance, by clearing and defusing any IED (Improvised Explosive Detonator). Ryan was among the few who are gifted with the ability to lead, and touched the hearts of hundreds of people in his regiment and back home in Arizona. While deployed to Afghanistan for a second tour he aided the Casualty Evac team after the loss of two fellow Marines from an IED explosion.
Ryan will be greatly remembered for his courage, and contagious optimistic attitude, no matter what the circumstances were. He will be greatly missed by all who loved him and had the honor to serve beside him.
