Red Ryder passed away yesterday morning

Comment from Paul Sorbara…

Red Ryder passed away yesterday morning at North York General Hospital.  He was 92.  He wanted a simple cremation and that is what he will get. However the family will be planning a memorial service through the Legion.

Thank you very much for posting these pictures of Red Ryder. He passed the other day. Red was my Uncle and his service to Canada and the world means a great deal to me. Having served in the Canadian Forces myself, these pictures are priceless for me! I have fond memories talking with Uncle Red about the times he flew. The group picture that he is inferred to, sure looks like him…..I am sure it is him.

  1. Hello, I was saddened to hear this news. I was so hoping for one final reunion with an old war buddy. Perhaps he did indeed have one. Now though, his work here is done, and it is time for a well-deserved rest. We salute you Red Ryder, and we thank you for your brave service. Farewell. Marcella

  2. Such sad news to hear of the passing of another brave veteran taking his memories and stories with him. As nations give thanks to him and many like him, our thoughts go to his family and friends.
