Sam Ryan Baron
May 12, 1995 – May 20, 2016

Sam Ryan Baron, born May 12, 1995, left us all to be with our Lord on May 20, 2016, as the result of an automobile accident. Visitation will be from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at Aldersgate United Methodist Church, 2201 Earl Rudder Freeway, College Station. Funeral Service will be at 2pm, Thursday, May 26, 2016 at the church. Interment will follow in the Masonic Cemetery in Caldwell. Funeral arrangements are in the care of Callaway-Jones Funeral Home and Crematory.

Oh my! What a joy he was to his parents, Carl (Sam) and Suzanne Baron (College Station, TX), sister Lindsey Baron (Austin, TX) and brother Riley Baron (Los Angeles, CA).

This young man loved life and lived it to the fullest. He found great joy spending time with his friends and family. His wonderful sense of humor and his creative ability to make others laugh was infectious. His love for the Lord was mirrored by how he loved others before himself, having a servant’s heart.

Ryan had big dreams and goals ahead of him, working diligently to arrive at one day owning his own business. He touched many lives while working in the oil and gas industry, and most recently with the fiber optic installation industry.

He will be greatly missed by his parents and siblings, as well as his grandparents, Jane Ann and Jr. Baron (Caldwell, TX), Norma Gipson (Bryan, TX) and Jerry and Dorothy Butler (Modesto, CA), countless aunts, uncles, cousins and many amazing friends.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations can be given to Brazos Christian School football program or to Aldersgate United Methodist Church Youth Program, in memory of Ryan Baron.

  3. Sam, Suzanne,
    My deepest sorrow for your loss of Ryan. He has always been; and I know he will be in Heaven, one of the best young men I have ever known. Not only was he a good friend, he was a great guy that treated everyone young or older with kindness, courtesy, respect, integrity and all the christian manners shown and taught by his loving parents. I will miss him. It was a pleasure being friends with him for the short time we had. May God’s peace and blessings be with your family during this time.

  4. Sam and Suzanne, I am so sorry to hear about Ryan. I can not imagine what you are going through. I am lifting you up in prayer continually. My heart hurts for you.

He has so many good memories with Ryan that he will treasure forever. May God give you peace that only comes from Him. Love and Hugs to you all!

  6. My heart goes out to his family. My daughter was a friend of Ryan’s and was very upset when she heard the news. She always had very nice things to say about him. What a gentle heart he had. May he rest in peace and may your family find peace at this time in the Lord.
    God Bless.

  11. Sam, Suzanne, & Family,
    There are no words that can reach the depth of a parent’s sorrow over this great loss. Nor can they reach the height or breadth of what Ryan is feeling as he basks in the very presence of God, our Father Almighty! May the peace and comfort of God console and sustain you as you move forward. And please know that you remain in our hearts and we are continuing to lift your family up in our prayers. We love y’all so much! Love, Milton & Debra Duffee and Kathryn Crabtree

  14. Sam,
    You and your family have been in my prayers. Since experiencing the loss of a sibling at a young age I can truthfully say I understand the pain. Faith and prayer have been my comfort then and still today. I pray it will be for you and your family as well.
    It sounds like Heaven received another angel (Ryan) that will continually watch over his family and friends.
    God Bless You.

  15. Sam and Suzanne,
    I am so sorry for your loss. My heart hurts for the pain you feel. I pray for your peace knowing he is in Heaven rejoicing in the presence of our Lord.
    Love, John Kristynik

  21. Sam and Suzanne
    I never had the pleasure to meet you both but we did know Ryan. My son Cody introduced us to him. Ryan was one of the best, always a smile and such a wonderful young man. I have happy memories just sitting and talking around the firepit. We will surely miss him and offer our sincere condolences during this difficult time. May God bless your entire family

I remember when they went to the prom and had an amazing evening. Once we were all at the river and he loved on my granddaughter who was 5 at the time and she was by his side the entire time he was there. My you find peace and comfort in kowing that Jesus will see you through your saddness. Ryan knew Jesus and now he has left this Earth way too soon to be in his Heavenly home. You will see him again

  25. Ryan was a faithful friend to my sons, Ben and Nathan. He was a bright spot in my day, every time I saw him. He was a guaranteed smile and hug. Ryan was a young man who loved his family, his friends, and his Lord. It was my honor and pleasure to know him. I look forward to encountering his radiant smile again when I see him in paradise with our Lord. Thank you, Suzanne and Sam for raising such a fine young man.

    Love and Prayers,

  28. Dear Carl, Suzanne, Jane Ann, and Jr. I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your beautiful child. I hate I can’t attend the service but just know you are loved and remain in my prayers. God Bless you all

  29. Dear Baron Family,

    I want you to know that I am so, so grateful to have gone to high school with Ryan. He was one of the first people to make me feel welcome at Brazos Christian School. Whether he was coming down the hallway saying, “Hey Gingersnap,” or laughing about how we both had “chip bowls” in our face (dimples), Ryan always made a point to make the people around him feel known, loved, and so special. I remember staying close to Ryan on any school outing or class trip. It was just second nature because we all knew if we were with Ryan, we were safe. One of the last memories I have of Ryan was on the way back from our class trip to Europe. For some reason, it took me way longer than everyone else to get through security. I had no idea at the time, but I was about to miss my flight home with the rest of our class to the U.S. As I was wandering through the airport trying to find the terminal, completely lost and unaware that I was about to miss the flight, Ryan was the only person who came back to find me. I’m not even sure that anyone else would have noticed I wasn’t on that flight. But there was Ryan, standing there in the terminal waiting for me and telling me to hurry up. 🙂 He waited to get on that plane until he had found me. I’ll never forget that. Ryan has left such an incredible legacy to us all. Many of us are fervently praying that many would come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior because of Ryan’s consistent and faithful witness. Your family has already been such an incredible testament to the hope we have in Christ Jesus. Ryan will never be forgotten, and I cannot wait until that wonderful day when we’re all going to get the biggest bear hug of our life.

    Much love,

  30. JoAnn and Jr,
    I can’t imagine what your feeling losing a grandchild. My heart breaks for you and of course, for Sam and Suzanne and the rest of the family. JoAnn and Jr, I have not seen you for many years, but I haven’t forgotten. My prayers are with you. May God comfort you in this time of loss.

  31. Dear Sam, Suzanne, Riley and Lindsey,

    I don’t have words to express how sorry I am that your family is going through the loss of a very fine son and brother. Although our paths didn’t cross often anymore, when they did, Ryan ALWAYS had a smile. He was one of the most polite, friendly engaging young people I have ever met. At least we don’t grieve as those without hope, and I look forward to seeing his beautiful smile again someday.

  32. I only had the honor of meeting Ryan one time, and in that brief visit he made a lasting impression on me as a young man of integrity and honor. He was considerate, respectful, smart and had a smile that would win over anyone instantly. We kept in touch and I looked forward to our next visit. Mr & Mrs Baron please know that your son was one of the rare ones, one of those young men that truly made a difference by just being himself and I will never forget him. He is home now with The Father and what a blessing that we will be able to see him again one day.
