HONORING RYAN'S MEMORY
Ryan was the sweetest, most easy-going young man. He was a thoughtful, organized and a hard-working honor student. Ryan would always do anything for a friend or family.
At the age of 12, he started working, forming his own detailing company, Krusin Customs. A true entrepreneur, Ryan created business cards, made t-shirts, handed out flyers door-to-door and eventually setting up a garage in Troy when he started driving. Ryan was a perfectionist and would not be satisfied if the car did not turn out pristine. He used a toothbrush on the wheels and even hired mechanics from Best Buy to install navigation systems and remote starters for him. Ryan later changed the company name to Squeaky Clean Detailing.
Ryan knew everything about cars, computers and golf equipment. He worked at Carl's Golfland for over three years, starting in his junior year of high school all the while maintaining a 4.0 average. Showing his marketing prowess he participated in and won a state wide DECA completion. In the summer of 2009, he worked at a marketing company Mon-Wed, at Carl's Thurs-Sat, took two college courses at night and detailed loyal customers' cars, if time permitted. During Fall Semester 2009, Ryan maintained a 4.0 average at MSU, while taking 19 credits and still found time to help his friends study and volunteer at Hillel and Meals on Wheels - both of which we did not learn about until after his death. The money Ryan made he saved, invested in Google and gave very generous gifts. He even had an IRA.
Ryan was so happy at MSU and AEPi . He was also very active in the MSU Hillel. He planned on achieving junior status this past January and starting in business school. Ryan decided to go to MSU undergrad to increase his chances of getting into the University of Michigan MBA program - that was his goal. Ryan planned to go into investment banking.
He was loved SO much, which was not hard to do. Ryan never raised his voice; he showed respect to others and was always very polite. In short, Ryan would do anything for anyone and never wanted or expected anything in return.
We honor Ryan and his memory through the annual Ryan Rosman (z'l) Golf Outing -- remembering him through golf, one of his favorite activities. The Golf Outing is a culmination of Ryan's interest in golf, Hillel, business and giving.
That was our Ryan.
We will always miss him.
