Devoted Father, Loving
Grandfather, Humble Friend
January 17, 1951 ~ June 10, 2020

We can shed tears that he is gone,
or we can smile because he lived.
We can close our eyes,
and pray that he'll come back.
Or we can open our eyes,
and see what he has left.
Love lives on, he may be gone,
but will never be forgotten.

A Celebration of life will take place on Saturday, August 8th, 2020 from 12pm to 5pm at Redcliff Baden Powell Center, 202 1st Street SW, Redcliff, AB. Open to all family and friends. Phil's family thanks you for your kind words and well wishes.

Ryan Cole Pancoast, loving husband of Jordan and adoring father to Asher and Dylen, passed away in Medicine Hat on Friday, July 31, 2020, at the age of 36 years. Along with the love of his life, Jordan, Ryan will be forever remembered in the hearts of his parents, Milton and Barb Pancoast; sister, Leesa (Royce) Bert and their children, Deegan and Keyana; grandma, Velma Pancoast and Oma, Ingrid Kitzler. He also leaves to cherish his memory Jordan’s family: parents, Lee (Cindy) Porter; brother, Hayden; grandma, Donna-Lee Porter as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Ryan was predeceased by his grandpa, Lindsay Pancoast and Jordan’s grandpa, Bob Porter. Asher and Dylen were Ryan’s pride and joy and he was their biggest fan. He coached Asher in hockey and was at every dance recital of Dylen’s. He loved dirt biking, camping, wake/snowboarding, hunting and learning to play the guitar with Asher. Ryan and Milt went on a trip of a lifetime hunting caribou and dahl sheep last summer; a trip both of them cherished. He was a kid at heart and his true inner child came out when playing and laughing with his children, niece and nephew and all of his friends children. Ryan was always the life of the party and the bright light in every room. The time spent being surrounded by his family and friends was one of Ryan’s greatest joys. He was always one to have a beer with the boys and have a good time. Ryan took over ownership of the family greenhouse and was honoured to run this business, making his family proud. He cherished his family most of all and will always remain in their hearts! Due to COVID 19 restrictions, the Funeral Service will be by invitation only.
