    #PLEASE BE CAREFUL ON YOUR TRACTOR# my friend will never be the same...

    I have the families permission to share so please take this as a serious plea from them to always be careful on your tractor! If Ryan’s youth, strength and luck pull him through this and he recovers “fully” he will sadly never be the same as he was before this closed head trauma.

    Hello friends. As you all may have heard Ryan is in the hospital with a severe head injury. On Sunday, June 9th, Ryan was helping his father in law with loading a tractor onto their trailer. The unthinkable happened when the tractor flipped sending Ryan Flying...which caused him to hit his head very hard resulting in a cracked skull and head injury. Currently he is heavily sedated and being cared for at Bronson. On behalf of his family can you prayerfully consider donating any amount to ease any financial burden during this tough time. Thank you you and God bless.

    Ryan is a co-worker of mine and a good friend-you’ll never find a gentler or kinder person doing what does. We work at a large government agency where is the Lead Heavy Duty Diesel & Hydraulic Mechanic who keeps the plow trucks that clear snow on the highway working and not sitting in the shop in our 9 county area of the State. Ryan has been around equipment much of his like and has dedicated his working career to safely operating and maintaining heavy equipment, he knows his stuff and is one of the best we have-if he can have a lapse in attention or judgment that caused his accident ANYONE CAN!!!! Please be careful out there on your equipment!

    While I was posted the above there was an update on Ryan shared.

    Thank you all for all the well wishes & prayers for Ryan. Today brought improvement but we’re still waiting for brain swelling to reduce and ventilator to be removed. Please continue to keep us in prayers.”

    The family has had a fundraiser page setup on their behalf, if anyone would like to info to make a donation please contact me via PM here, thank you in advance!

    Lost a friend to a similar accident that caused the tractor to flip and pin the operators chest. Unfortunately he didnt survive.

    A co-worker lost his Dad 2 years ago attempting to push a tree with the forks which ultimately flipped the tractor.

    be careful all the time!
