Rylan Roy Newman, 6, of Columbia, MO was granted angel wings on Tuesday, December 31, 2013.

He was born March 21, 2007 in Columbia, MO to Mark and Sharon (Morris) Newman.

Ry enjoyed riding horses, four-wheelers, and being outside in the fresh air. He was an honorary Boone County Fire Protection District Chief, as well as an honorary Hickman Lacrosse coach. God was important in Ry’s life, and he often carried the Holy Bible.

He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Survivors include his parents, Mark and Sharon Newman, Siblings, Brenden Bremer, and Alex Tennill, all of Columbia, grandparents, Milton and DeVonna Newman, of Mina, SD, and Raymond Griffin and Jane Jeffries, both of Columbia, many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Rylan was preceded in death by his grandparents, Roy Carl Morris and Margaret Morris Griffin.

There will be a visitation from 10:00 a.m. to noon Saturday, January 4, 2014, with a Celebration of Life to follow at noon.
