Christopher Ryan Horrell (Wilmington Funeral & Cremation)

BURGAW — Christopher “Ryan” Horrell of Burgaw passed away on Monday, June 17th, 2024 after a short battle with cancer.

Ryan is preceded in death by maternal grandparents William N. and Cecilia G. Horrell, paternal great-grandmother Florence “Grannie” Wells, paternal grandmother Ann Thompson, as well as cousins Michael Austin Whaley and Andrew Ashley Flores.

Ryan was the owner/operator of R&S Construction completing projects all over the Cape Fear Region. His work could be seen at the newly remodeled Pilot House and Elijah’s, IHOP and Godwin Lumber are also some of his personal achievements.

He is best known for his love of being a father and willingness to help anyone in need. He could frequently be seen out on the River, camping or smoking meats on the cooker.

Ryan never met a soul he would not help in any way he was able to. Simply put, Ryan had a heart of gold.

Surviving are his wife, Sarah, and children: Alex, Chris, Kinsleigh, Christopher, Levi, Marley and Savannah.

Ryan is also survived by his parents Matthew Thompson and Amy Horrell, along with sister Nikki Thompson and fiancée Justin Horn. Extended family, friends and co-workers are also among those mourning.

Family and friends are invited for a Celebration of Life at 6pm on Sunday, July 14th at 3637 Lynn Avenue in Castle Hayne.

The Horrell Family would like to extend their appreciation and gratitude to Ms. Samantha Kroes of Wilmington Funeral & Cremation for her continued support and guidance.

Please leave memories and condolences for Ryan’s family here.
