Obituary for Ryan Boerman

December 30, 1991 - November 28, 2018
Bentheim, Michigan | Age 26


Ryan Boerman, age 26, of Bentheim, fixed his eyes on Jesus as he shed off his vent, stepped out of his wheelchair, and ran across the finish line into the arms of Jesus. He completed the race with perseverance that the Lord marked out for him on Wednesday, November 28, 2018.

He joined his beloved aunt, Kim Betten, who has also completed the race.

Ryan graduated from Hamilton High School and Davenport University. He was employed by Davenport University as the Athletics Community Relations Assistant.

Ryan lived life to the fullest, not letting Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy get in his way. He loved sports and was a passionate University of Michigan and Davenport University fan. He enjoyed traveling and visiting many sports venues.

Ryan is survived by his parents, Darwin and Diane Boerman; his sisters, Emily Boerman and Marissa Boerman. He is also survived by grandparents, Jerald and Harriet Boerman, John and Jan Betten as well as cherished aunts, uncles and cousins and dear friends.

The Celebration of Life service will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday, December 3, 2018 in the sanctuary also at the church. Burial will be in Bentheim Cemetery.
