Ryan Francis Rupoli was born on Christmas Day, the best Christmas present ever for his parents, Lorie and Frank Rupoli. He is also survived by his 13 year-old-son, Calvin. He is preceded in death by his wife, Melissa and his brother Dustin.
As a child he loved to wrestle, play soccer, baseball and basketball. As a teen, he loved Track and Field, and he continued to run the rest of his life. He ran many miles with his Golden Retrievers Cheyenne, then Marty, and recently with his Husky, Ice.
Ryan graduated from Arvada West High School in 1996 and then went to The University of Northern Colorado for two years. During high school he started working part time as a busboy at Ruth Chris Steak House. He continued to work there during college and moved his way up to a server, waiter, bartender and finally manager. This is where he met his wife, Melissa and they were married in 2006 and welcomed their son, Calvin in 2007.
Ryan did pursue a career in wine sales, and met many wonderful forever friends. Ryan will always be remembered by his nick name, "HOLLYWOOD" due to his impeccable fashion style and mannerisms. Many of his friends have stated they will always remember him by his warm forever "SMILE". He will be so missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing and loving him.
