In 2004, Ryan said in a dedication to a fallen VAW-115 Navy pilot, Lt. Thomas “Dumpy” Adams:
“I think it’s important to make a memorial, a reminder, because we need it. Dumpy was just a great human being. When the guys who knew Dumpy leave the squadron, all that’s left will be this memorial. The only time that someone truly dies is when that person is gone from people’s minds. With this memorial, Dumpy will continue to live on in the minds of those who see it,” said Betton.
Ryan you will live forever in our hearts and minds.
