Ryan Allen Hohenadel, 41, “finished the race” on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, after battling a terminal illness.
Originally from Perryville, Ryan lived with his family in North Carolina, Oregon, and Tennessee before returning to Missouri in 2017.
Ryan grew up in Perryville, where he discovered his love for running and fitness while running Cross Country/Track for Perryville High school. He later attended Evangel College where he received an associates degree in construction technology and a bachelor degree from Missouri State University in construction management. Ryan then began his career in AutoCAD.
Ryan’s hobbies included: woodworking, leather tooling, book making, beef jerky making, coffee roasting, running, camping, hiking, rock climbing, playing guitar and drums, graphic design/logo design, mentoring, cycling, video making, encouraging others, seeing how different materials burn in a fire, discovering new hot sauces, traveling, and building.
Ryan began his journey battling cancer in 2019. It is in this space that they moved to Cape Girardeau, and also where Ryan expanded his influence to encouraging an online community. Through instagram @longrunfit, he was able to create a space of hope and healing for people he would never meet, but cared for deeply.
Ryan is survived by his beloved wife, Gloria; his two sons - Jonas (13) and Silas (10); his daughter, Ada Beth (3); his parents, Dr. Ronald and Patricia Hohenadel; and his sisters, Emily Richardson (Steven), Joanna Rozier (Andrew).
Ryan’s Celebration of Life was held at Mount Auburn Christian Church on Monday, May 3, 2021. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Memorial Scholarship Fund for the Hohenadel children at https://www.gofundme.com/f/memorial-scholarship-for-hohenadel-children/donate
