Ryan James Butters, 30 years old, beloved son, grandson, father, and friend to many, was called home to his Heavenly Father on June 4, 2018. He entered this world on October 30, 1987, in Baton Rouge, LA. His son Aiden, was a gift from God and was his love, pride and joy. Ryan was full of character and quick wit. He could bring life to a room when everyone was together. Ryan fought through so many obstacles in his life with passion. He was perfect in all his imperfections.
