Our hearts are filled with sadness. We knew Ryan from a young age, the boys would spend afternoons longboarding together and enjoying typical boy shenanigans. Ryan was always polite and friendly and always had a smile on his face. Our hearts go out to all of you.
Your family has been on my mind since news came thru about Ryan. He lived on the same floor @ ISU as my daughter and graduated with her at Huntley. I rode the elevator on move in day with him. My daughter explained to me, in August, who he was and it really gave me great peace of mind that he was there at ISU with her and so close, a piece of home was just down the hall. Again, I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you all find a way to heal and move forward and keep Ryan's legacy. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
As a member of community and father of a 2019 graduate my heart is deepened with the loss of a future star from Huntley We wish you peace in comfort that others are thinking of you
Thoughts and prayers with your family. Your smiling face will be missed around town and on the baseball fields.
I went to Huntley High School with Ryan, I was a year above him and I was so blessed to even know his kind soul. He was so welcoming, inclusive, & full of light. I’m so grateful to even cross paths with Ryan Feeley. All my love & prayers go out to the Feeley family.
I met Ryan the summer of 2018. For the time I've known him, Ryan was funny, supportive, and seriously driven. Ryan was an amazing friend and Always had my back. Ryan was a role model. Ryan impacted the lives of so many people in a positive way, having their backs, being supportive, and being genuine. Ryan will never be forgotten, and I’m honored to have had the chance to know him. My heart goes out to the Feeley family and those grieving.

We didn't know Ryan other than what Chris and Brenda has told us about him, but he sounds like a wonderful young man. Our prayers go with you at this time in your lives. There is no greater heartache than the loss of a child. Time will heal, but you will never forget the love and happiness he brought into your lives and he will always be in your heart. We will keep him in our prayers. God Bless.

I went out with Ryan for a bit before he left for college and he was one of the most genuine, caring, vibrant, polite, and outgoing people I have ever met. I saw him a few weeks before he passed and since I hadn’t seen him in so long he told me to enjoy life and make every moment count of my senior year. He was a person who lived to the fullest and was very bright. My heart truly goes out to Ryan and your family. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers.
