A meal will follow the service. Kim was born August 29, 1956 in Louisiana, Missouri to Harry Thomas and Dorothy Eileen Knock Ryan. He was united in marriage to Judy E. Twellman on April 20, 1974 at St. Alphonsus Church in Millwood, Missouri. She survives. Kim has resided in the Silex area his entire life. He was a 1974 graduate of Silex High School. Kim had been employed at Olney Fertilizer, and MFA of Wentzville, finally becoming employed at Knapheide Truck Equipment in St. Peters, Missouri, from where he eventually retired. Kim loved to spend time with Judy, completing frame-off restorations of old cars. In total they had restored more than a dozen 1970 SS Chevelles. Kim also loved to spend time watching his grandchildren play sports. Kim played hard-road baseball for many years, followed by slow pitch softball. Kim had always played the catching position in his baseball years, and he was so proud when some of his grandchildren chose to play the same position. He also enjoyed watching his grandsons play football, a sport he did not have the opportunity to play. He loved and was equally proud of all of his grandchildren, and he was looking forward to watching the oldest graduate from high school in the spring, and then attend college in the fall. Kim also enjoyed deer and pheasant hunting, with Judy being his hunting partner the last several years. He took great pride in making sure his yard always looked nice. Kim is survived by his wife, Judy; sons, Chris Ryan (Sherry) of Troy, and Robby Ryan (Amy) of Wright City; grandchildren: Nathan Ryan, Conner Ryan, Morgan Ryan, Kylie Ryan, and Kenzie Ryan; sisters, Cheryl Johnson of Troy, Linda Ryan of Troy, and Marcia Glover (Bob) of Troy; brothers and sisters-in law: Ruth Heffner (Ted), Ralph Twellman (Beverly), Ron Twellman (Phyllis), Mary Hrdina (Gerald), Mike Twellman (Pat), Rick Twellman (Becky), George Twellman (Vicki), Jerry Twellman (Tina), Mark Twellman (Cheryl), and Marlene Likens (Steve); along with many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; and his parents-in-law, Herman and Marcella Twellman; niece, Tanya Luck; and great-nephew, Dyllan Wansing. Memorials may be made to Silex Schools Athletic Department.
