Dr. Frank Ryan

Frank Ryan was an accomplished surgeon and good man. He had a distinct air of decency and authenticity about him; that is probably what many will remember about him. I didn’t know him well or see him often, but was always a bit happier when I did. Smart, serious and with an unmistakable warmth and elegance–this, you don’t come across all the time in Los Angeles. (When you do, you don’t forget the person.) His sudden death–and at a young age–is a reminder that such a thing can strike out at any moment, even when driving along PCH on a sunny August day. RIP, A True Gentleman.
