JOHN RYAN was born far too late to have participated in World War II.....his father fought in that one.  JOHN was in the US Navy in Vietnam and his job included blowing up American equipment left behind, including downed aircraft, to prevent them from falling into enemy hands.

JOHN served on the Sharkhunters Advisory Board but most important to me personally - he was Godfather to my son.  Sadly, a short time after his 51st birthday, he began his 'Eternal Patrol', the result of liver cancer.  JOHN thought this was brought on by his exposure to "Agent Orange" but we'll never know, as JOHN succumbed within a few months of learning that he was facing death due to this insidious disease.
