“I’ve been dreading this day for a while.”
After his grandfather Lionel Ryan passed away peacefully on September 6, former Home and Away star Jake Ryan wrote a moving tribute to him yesterday (September 7).
With a selection of adorable pictures, Ryan celebrated “the king of the Ryan clan.” He posted them on Instagram.
Photographs of a colorfully attired Lionel, images of the two, and images of Lionel with his grandchildren, including Jake’s son Wolf, whom he shares with fiancée Alice Quiddington, were all included in the collection.
Pop, Red, Redbull, the king of the Ryan clan died away in his sleep gently last night, and I’ve been dreading this day for a while, Ryan wrote in the caption.
Ryan went on: “He was, “The Ryan family,” and there’s a very significant vacuum left in his absence. Those who knew him will understand what I mean. I can’t find the words or realize the depth of this loss just yet.
“I apologize to those who never got the chance to speak with him or have a conversation. Already miss you a much, Pop. Rest certain that Aaron is watching over you up there, and you can relax.
Ryan, who played in Home and Away for three years, received encouragement from his former co-stars in the post’s comments area. Penny McNamee, who plays Tori Morgan, wrote: “Sending you so much love, Jakey.
Sam Frost, who played Ryan’s on-screen wife Jasmine, posted on Twitter, “Sending love Jakey,” while Jackson Heywood, who plays Brody Morgan, wrote, “Big love mate. My condolences for your loss.
Ryan played the notoriously and dramatically killed Ryan Shaw in the January 2020 season opener of Home and Away, which he appeared in from 2017 to 2020.
Ryan left the program to pursue movie roles.
