Ryan Lee Benjamin McPhee 8/18/86 ~6/19/10
Had Ryan's wallet not gotten lost on 6/8, he'd have been 1000's of miles from Sacramento on 6/19 when he was murdered, outside the Q Street Bar & Grill.
Ryan had a ticket to return to AL, but lost his wallet & missed the flight. When his sister got a job in Sac, he decided to wait for her here.
"It's a senseless, tragic death," said Kausha, who helped her single mom raise Ryan. "Instead of communicating differences, the man chose to stab him to death, not thinking that he was taking some one's son/brother."
Ryan was a big brother to Kausha's sons & led them through physical training every day, while learning to be a personal trainer.
He came to CA to bring his nephews to see their grandma in San Diego, then visited friends in Sac.
The family grieves for their fun guy who loved his family, football, basketball & hanging out with his nephews. Ryan was awesome, kind, & loving with a radiant smile.
