Rest in Peace Matt Ryan (1934-2024)

Long-time Republican Thomas "Matt" Ryan died peacefully on June 18, 2024. His Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, August 3 at 2:00 p.m. at Silverdale Lutheran Church (11701 Ridgepoint Dr NW, Silverdale, WA). Fellow Republicans are invited to attend.


Matt served as KCRP Chairman in the 1980's, Kitsap County Commissioner in the 1990's, and was a Precinct Committeeman for about 30 years. He was elected as a Freeholder and worked to change the structure of our county government (the new county charter failed to pass in the 2003 election). An active member of Kitsap Alliance of Property Owners, Matt's mission for over 40 years was to protect property rights. Matt was a dedicated campaign worker for Republican candidates from 1976 until he became to ill to work. He wrote so many letters to the editor on behalf of Republicans and property rights issues that the Sun Editor severely limited his input.
