October 31, 1981 – June 27, 2020
With profound sorrow, we announce that our most beloved son, brother, family member, and friend Ryan William Magee, age 38 has passed away suddenly at his home in Alvin, Texas on June 27,2020 from pancreatic complications.
Ryan was raised in Friendswood, Texas and actively participated in many school groups and activities over the years. He loved playing baseball and soccer as a child and grew up a huge Astros fan. He always bought souvenirs for his family and friends. After graduating from Friendswood High School, he enrolled at Sam Houston State University. However, his priorities changed upon learning that his beloved mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. After the passing of his beautiful mother, he acquired an enjoyable job in aviation, to which he fully intended to return. Instead, over time he felt called to transition to a job working with his cousin in chemical plants until his passing.
Ryan accepted Christ, served God with his whole life, and actively worshipped at his church, The Harbor Church in Friendswood, Texas. His family, friends, and coworkers meant the world to him. He lived to love and serve others, always selflessly putting others first. He was everybody's best friend. He was compassionate, unmaterialistic, a peacemaker, generous, kind, valued simplicity, and was always right there when others needed him. Ryan loved all children, especially those of his family and friends. He was also child-like in nature and enjoyed spending time with everybody's kids, making them laugh, and giving them gifts. At work, he was a dedicated leader. He was great at motivating his coworkers, brightening their day, and keeping them entertained with his witty humor and pranks. He was also a very talented singer. He could sing in any style and had a strong passion for music. Ryan truly lived life to the fullest. He is deeply loved by everyone who knew him, and his memory will be cherished forever.
Ryan was preceded in death by his mother, Paula Anette Magee and survived by his spouse, Crystal Lynn Rogers and her family. Ryan deeply loved her children, Justin Lane Rogers, Emily Ann Rogers, Evelyn Nichole Garcia, and grandson Nicholas Cole Rogers. He is also survived by his father Ernest Mark Magee; brother Chad Mark Magee, Chad's wife Latosha Denae Magee, Chad's daughters, Paula Cierra Diane, Diana Grace, and Abrielle Denae, Chad's stepson Taylor Paul Tovar; sister Chelsea Anette Magee, Chelsea's daughter Addisson Anette Brooks Tickner; aunt and uncle Chuck and Donna Kukuk and their children, Bobbi, Marci, and Donnie. Ryan was extremely close with his first cousins Raini Day Locke, William Jarrod Recknor, Jaimi Nicole Willis, their spouses, children, and parents Chip and Tony Kenny. He worked with them faithfully at the chemical plants until the end of his life.
