Isaac Ryan Obituary

Isaac Sylvester Vilmorin Ryan was born in Montserrat, on May 11th 1943. He was born to Elliotte Virginia “Dora” Ryan and Llewellyn Jeremiah “Tata” Meade in Harris Village.

Growing up he attended St. George’s School where he attained certificates in arithmetic, writing, and reading. Unable to attend high school, he traded a traditional education for a worldly one, heading to St Thomas. There he trained at Bluebeard’s Castle to be a cook, receiving accolades

for his work. He would travel back and forth throughout the Caribbean, before eventually settling in Boston, Massachusetts.

While there, he took on multiple jobs from working at a steel mill, to a paper factory, a

converse factory, and finally his last and most enduring job— working at Pine Street Inn, up until his retirement. While cooking was his job, it was also his favorite pastime. Friends and family would look forward to his cooking and hire him for weddings, birthdays, or any event that required food.

Isaac never missed an opportunity to get to know someone new. He always had a smile on his face and a story or a joke to tell. He was well known in all the neighborhoods he lived in. Friends were like family to him–with friendships lasting decades. Isaac cherished family, but held a special place in his heart for children above all. He leaves behind multiple children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He died in Boston, MA on March 4th, 2024 at the age of 80 years old.
