Ryan Eliot Feldman, 44, entered eternal rest July 27, 2022. He was born January 17, 1978, in Palm Springs, CA. He grew up in New Jersey and Jacksonville, FL where he lived until he married the love of his life, Lyndsey Harvey Feldman. They made their home together in Glen St. Mary, FL. Ryan continued to live in Glen St. Mary with their son, Brayden even after the untimely death of his wife in 2018.
Ryan’s education included: St Joseph’s Catholic Elementary School, St. Joseph’s Academy, and the University of North Florida.
Ryan had a career with the State of Florida, Department of Corrections that spanned over a 17-year period. While working in security, Ryan rose to the rank of Sergeant before starting a new chapter within the Department of Correction in the education department. This allowed him normal working hours and more time with his son.
Ryan’s life was his son, Brayden. He was a devoted and loving father. He loved spending as much time as possibly with Brayden. Their favorite interests were remote control cars, attending wrestling and monster truck events, video games and competitive sports. He loved assisting the coaches and cheering on Brayden and his teammates.
Ryan was raised in a house of Florida Gators. Much to his parent’s surprise and dismay, he was an avid Florida State Seminole. He was a strong supporter of law enforcement and supported them whenever and wherever he could.
Ryan is survived by his 9-year-old son, Brayden; mother, Barbara; brother, Jordan; mother-in-law, Debra Harvey; father-in-law, Johnny (Bonnie) Harvey; brothers-in-law, Deymon (Tiffany) Harvey, Kyle Harvey, and Mikell Harvey; sister-in-law, Summer Harvey; and a very large extended family.
