With his daughters by his bedside, Colonel Pat Ryan passed away peacefully on Friday, December 23rd, 2005, at the Ottawa Hospital.

Born in Kitchener on March 22nd, 1925, he studied Engineering, in London, at the University of Western Ontario and later at the University of Michigan where he received dual Masters: Aeronautical and Electrical Engineering.
Pat is one of the few veterans who served in all three branches of the Canadian Armed Forces: a piper with the Scottish Fusiliers at age 15; a pilot in the Royal Navy at 20, and a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1945 until 1976. During his career, he had postings in Whitehorse, Ottawa, Washington, and Clinton, where he served as Commanding Officer. Following his retirement from the Canadian Armed Forces, he became Assistant Dean of Engineering at Carleton University and later was editor of The Canadian Aeronautics and Space Journal.
An accomplished pilot, engineer, and writer, he will be fondly remembered by his family as a bagpiper, organist, painter, avid reader and tinkerer. His generosity and sharp sense of humour will be greatly missed and never forgotten by those who knew him.
We would like to express our gratitude to the healthcare team of the ICU at the General Campus of the Ottawa Hospital. As Pat supported numerous charities, memorial contributions to your favourite charity would be appreciated. A memorial gathering will be held at a later date.
