Ryan Scott Tomac, born October 4, 1994, passed away on August 29, 2015 at the age of 20 after a courageous year-long battle with cancer. He is survived by his parents, Matt and Nikki Tomac, and his brothers, Trevor, Dylan, Lonnie, his grandparents Pat & Julie Vario and Bob & Millie Tomac, his girlfriend Siearrah, his best friends Austin, Aaron, Tristan, Hailey, Bailey & Rose, his aunts & uncles, Bruce & Melinda Vario, Cyndie Vario, Steve & Patty Snow and Bobby Tomac, his other parents Dave & Theresa Steadman, his cousins Bayli & Ryan, Tanner, Aly, Makaylie & James, Brianna, Amber & Spencer, Aubri, Alisa & Zac & Andrew. Ryan loved his THS baseball team, all baseball in general, the Cincinnati Reds, motocross, cars, golf, downhill mountain biking, snowboarding, anything else snow-related, basketball, lobster tails, hamburgers, chocolate, video games, skate boarding, the Tooele High Buffs, his friends, and his family. He loved a lot of things. He loved life. His family will remember Ryan for the enthusiasm and care he showed to others regardless of his own circumstances. We will also remember the time he borrowed a cast iron wolf out of a neighbor's front yard. The time he and Trevor left the kitchen faucet running in a plugged sink while they watched Dylan play video games in the basement, causing the house to flood. And the time he knocked a chandelier off the ceiling with a basketball. And the music he was always singing, listening to or dancing to. Ryan worked for his best bud Ryan Bowen at Pure Water Solutions. Ryan proudly became a Tooele City Honorary Fire Fighter, which he said was the best day of his life. Ryan's optimism was contagious. He co-founded "The Herd," a student group dedicated to cheering on Tooele High's sports teams, to spread that optimism. He smiled at everyone, and they always smiled back. And during the last year of his life, he reminded his friends and family to stay positive, expressly stating that we need to focus on enjoying our time together rather than worrying about how much time is left. As per Ryanâ€™s request, there will not be a viewing, his funeral will be held on Thursday, September 3rd at 11:00 am at St. Marguerite Catholic Church, 15 South 7th Street, Tooele, UT 84074\n\nTo send flowers or a memorial gift to the family of Ryan Scott Tomac please visit our Sympathy Store.
