Michael Ryan

Owner/Licensed Funeral Director/Embalmer

I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. After attending The University of Cincinnati, I attended, and graduated from The Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science, where I now serve on the board. I moved and settled down in Mason, Ohio in 1985 with my loving wife Melinda. I enjoy life, and take pleasure in reading, cycling, hiking, antiques, wine making, and my Rhodesian Ridge-back dog, Doc. I take great pride in being able to serve the Mason Community, and hope to do so for many more years.
