It is with great sadness that the family of Ryan E. Baptiste announces his passing on October 22nd, 2019 at the age of 34. His beautiful soul was brought into this world on September 7th, 1985 to his late parents, Eileen (Cornaglia) and Edward Baptiste. Ryan was educated in Taunton and graduated from Taunton High School. He was employed with Blount Fine Foods for several years and most recently worked for Titleist. Ryan will forever be remembered by his cherished daughter: Aubrielle Baptiste; his loving sister: Lori Baptiste and her Fiancé Joe Rock of New Bedford; his niece Ariana Rock and several aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Ryan is also survived by Aubrielle’s mother, Ashley Cabral of Fall River. In addition to his late parents, Ryan was predeceased by his maternal grandparents: Gertrude and Alfred Cornaglia & his Paternal grandparents: Ida and John Baptiste.
Ryan loved life and lived every day with a smile that would light up the world, especially when he was around his daughter Aubrielle. He was a devoted father and it showed. He loved nothing more than playing and spending time with her. One of his greatest passions was making her laugh to see her beautiful smile. Ryan also enjoyed cooking, watching movies and collecting sports/baseball cards. He was an avid Boston sports fan and loved watching the Patriots win. Ryan was an all-around great person with a heart of gold. Those who knew Ryan, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. His indomitable spirit encouraged his family and friends to persist in the face of many struggles. Those we love don’t go away; they walk beside us every day; Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear. He will be truly missed but never forgotten.
