Ryan Michael Sanner, 32, of Bowling Green, Ohio, passed away on Monday, November 15, 2021.

For two years he was employed by Wood Lane Board of DD writing articles for the organization. He was a member of First United Methodist Church and served on the City of Bowling Green Sidewalk Commission. Ryan was an avid Ohio State Buckeyes and Pittsburgh Steelers fan and enjoyed attending BGSU Women’s basketball games.
