Ryan Lee Marzi, 38, of Hebron, CT, passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on August 28th 2022 at his
home. He is survived by his mother, Teresa Olis of New Britain; father, Richard Marzi of Hebron;
brothers Joshua Marzi of Berlin, Kevin Marzi of Hebron, and Nicholas Jakowenko of Rochester MN; and
his love Kelsey Frank of Canterbury, as well as many other close friends and family members.
Ryan was born at New Britain General Hospital on August 6 th 1984. During his childhood he moved
around by grew up mostly in Colchester and graduated from Bacon Academy high school in 2003. After
that, he spent most of his time in Hebron. For the past 8 years, he was working at a paving company
where he was exemplary and dedicated, as anybody who knew him can vouche for. His mother would
always say that Ryan was known as “the Hulk” at work.
You could always find Ryan doing anything outdoors, whether it was fishing at Red Cedar lake, dirtbiking
in the mountains, or doing his own or someone else’s yardwork. Fixing cars was also a huge passion of
Ryan’s. Whether it was working on his truck or coming by his mom’s house to check all the fluids in her
Blazer, he truly had a knack for cars. His favorite music was anything country, and occasionally he
would show off his dance moves when the right song would come on. Anyone who knew Ryan knows
that he was a big animal lover, as his cat Seekin could attest to. Ryan had talked about one day
becoming a veterinarian technician if given the opportunity.
The most joy Ryan had was when he surrounded himself with his close friends and family, especially
around the holidays. He had the biggest heart and you immediately felt his kindness when you met him,
even if it was for the first time. He could always make you laugh no matter what, and if you were feeling
down or sad, after spending a couple minutes with Ryan you wouldn’t be anymore. You could always
count on him for anything as he was the best son, brother, and friend anyone could have ever asked for.
He had always said he was looking forward to having a family of his own one day where he undoubtedly
would have made an exceptional father.
Ryan has touched many peoples’ lives and he will be dearly missed, but his spirit lives on within us, and
we look forward to the day that we can see him again.
