Ryan Michael Gsell, age 43, of Bear, DE, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, July 20, 2023.
Born in Wilmington, DE on January 18, 1980, he was the son of Edward M. Gsell and the late Denise (Borders) Gsell-Joyce. Ryan was a graduate of Salesianum and The Art Institute of Philadelphia. Following graduation, he worked various jobs. For the past ten years, Ryan worked for Simply Green Lawn Care as an operations manager, which was his favorite by far.
He was a tremendously loving husband and stepfather. Ryan always made sure that his wife and children came first. He was a fish by nature and absolutely loved jet skiing and being out in the ocean. Ryan enjoyed traveling with his family making special memories. Above all, he was a great man, a good friend, and a hero.
In addition to his mother, Ryan is preceded in death by his stepson, Logan Benedetto. He is survived by his loving wife, Deena Brown; stepchildren, Gabrielle and Nicholas; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends.
