Sterling resident Ryan Dale Sholin died Saturday, May 3, 2008, at Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage. He was 19.
Services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at the Soldotna High School Auditorium. A reception will follow.
Mr. Sholin was born March 12, 1989, in Soldotna. He attended Soldotna High School and graduated from Cook Inlet Academy in 2007.
"Some of his favorite places to be were in the Caribou Hills snowmachining with friends and family, snowboarding at Alyeska, catching fish on the Kenai, halibut fishing, spending time on Kasitra Bay, tide pooling, Jersey Subs, anywhere on his dirt bike and spending time with family on Scout Lake. Ryan was absolutely one of the funniest people around. Ryan had the ability to make even the gloomiest day bright," his family said. "Ryan should not be remembered for his death, but rather for the twinkle in his eye and the smiles he generously shared with all. His love will live on forever through his family."
He is survived by his parents, Steve and Crystal Sholin and Joel and Kerri Nelson; siblings, Kaili Sholin and Chloe', Ellie and Coel Nelson; grandparents, Helon Sholin, Susie Nagel, Pat Haskell, Larry Needs and Curt Nelson; great-grandmothers, Irene Lee and Martha Nelson; and many other extended relatives.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations may be made to the Ryan Dale Sholin Memorial Fund at Wells Fargo Bank in care of the Nelson/Sholin joint account. For more information, call 262-4435.
