Ryan is also survived by his loving grandfather, Hurschel “Popee” Burleigh and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and so, so many friends. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Rod “Pa Pa” and “Dot” Plattsmier and by his maternal grandmother Ruby “Momee” Burleigh.
The love of music enriched Ryan’s life. He played the bass guitar in a local and nationally traveled New Orleans based band, “The Public.” He was an avid outdoorsman and regularly outdid his Dad and brother in their many forays on the waterways and in the woods. Ryan was an avid football fan and lived for the Saints and LSU seasons.
He loved his extended family, and cherished large family get togethers where Cajun cuisine was the chosen fare. Ryan was 31 and resided in Luling. Relatives and friends of the family attended a funeral Mass at Holy Family Church, 155 Holy Family Lane, Luling. on Monday, Nov. 3, 2008.
Interment followed at Sunset Cemetery in Bayou Gauche.
Family and friends can visit NOLA.com’s obituary site and sign Ryan’s online guestbook.
