GASPAROVICH RYAN JACOB, 13 years old, born September 14, 2001, left a void in our hearts on March 1, 2015. He was the joy of our lives. He was an extremely talented pianist, who would teach himself how to play a song when he found one he liked. His true calling was drawing. He could draw just about anything and often did for friends and family. His dream was to become an illustrator. Ryan liked playing video games, WII, hidden object games, watching TV and hanging out with his Sissy. He started a sword collection, which he was very proud of. He liked campfires, playing baseball, skating, snowboarding, riding bikes, swimming and playing with his beloved dogs, Kiara and Brianna. He liked school and had many friends who will miss him so very much. He was our beloved baby boy and little brother and our hearts are broken and our lives changed without him here. The warmth of his smile, his heart beating with ours in a tight hug, his laughter ringing through the house will be missing in our lives forever. So many things he should be here to do and the plans for a future he would have been extraordinary in will forever be a reminder of who is missing in our lives and hearts. He is survived by his parents John and Deborah (Lodge) Gasparovich; his sister Lindsay Noel. Grandmother Karen (the late Ronald) Lodge; eight aunts and uncles and 11 cousins. Predeceased by grandparents and great-grandparents. Visitation Thursday 3-9 p.m. and Friday 1-9 p.m. at Wujek-Calcaterra & Son, Inc. (Shelby Twp.), 54880 Van Dyke at 25 Mile Rd.
