Ryan Robert Dare, of Mora, formerly of Elk River, was given to us on August 27, 1982 and left us on January 2, 2016, at the age of 33, after a yearlong battle with brain cancer. He was surrounded by his family and good friends at the time of his death.
Ryan was born to Karen (Richardson) and Robert (Grip) Dare. He spent the early years of his life in the Elk River area and graduated from Elk River Senior High in 2001. After moving to Mora in 2003 Ryan earned his certificate as a diesel mechanic from St. Cloud Technical College. With some influence from his grandpa Ben, Ryan developed a love for the land; “Farmer Ryan” was born. He took great pride in the condition of his soil and the appearance of his fields. Ryan had many good times attending various tractor pulls and thrashing shows. His favorite event, of course, was his 22 appearances at the Nowthen, MN thrashing show with his friends and family.
Ryan lived and breathed John Deere GREEN. Not everything had to have a diesel engine though. His spunky little Ford Mustang meant a great deal to him even though it was blue.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents; father Robert; and brother Todd.
He is survived by his mother Karen Dare of Mora; brothers Donald Dare and Rich (Brenda) Gould; sisters Paula Dare, Robin Dare and Rhonda Gould; aunts and uncles Mary Dare (Jim) Nord, Bob and Janie Richardson, and Bill and Lynda Richardson; nieces and nephews Nicholas Gould, Jennifer Dare, Krystle Loberg, Matt Puhl, Dylan Gould and Samantha Gould; great nieces and nephews Cody, Tristan, Bennel, Braelynn and Jayce. He also leaves behind two very special souls; his loving dog and companion Abby and his multi colored lap cat Cali.
His siblings are very thankful to Ryan for taking especially good care of their mother. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.
