Ryan Wayne Loveless, 65, passed away unexpectedly Sept. 16, 2022, at Logan Health Medical Center from complications of diabetes.
Ryan was born in Kalispell on Sept. 30, 1956, the second of three sons to Donald and Ruth (Kinniburgh) Loveless. He grew up and attended school in Kalispell and graduated from Flathead High School in 1975. His early working years were spent in the woods on a logging crew. Soon after, he began his life's work as a journeyman meat cutter. He worked most of his career at Meats Supply, but also was part of the crew at Rosauers and Harvest Foods. He ran his own mobile butchering company and during hunting season provided cutting services to the valley in his meat shop he set up in his parents’ garage. In his semi-retirement, along with working at Harvest Foods in Bigfork, he started his own lawn care and snow removal business. Ryan was a very hard worker and provided his children Josh, Jessica, Jake and Jeff with a great childhood. Ryan took great pride in his work and the way he ran all of his businesses, which he dubbed C and R Enterprises.
In his very little down time, Ryan loved spending time at his cabin in the woods, watching the wildlife and even firing up the generator to turn on all the Christmas lights he had strung up outside of it. He also enjoyed hunting, hosting Loveless family sledding parties, and spending time with his close friends and family. He loved helping people and making anyone laugh with his corny jokes. He was always smiling and had the best, most infectious laugh. He was truly one of the best and will be missed greatly by all that knew him.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Ruth; his aunt and uncle, Merle and Don Komenda; and his cousin and very close friend, Bob Komenda. He is survived by his father Don and his wife Faye; his sons, Josh, Jake (Andi) and Jeff (Tiffany) Loveless; and his daughter, Jessica (Chad) Hendershott; as well as his beloved grandkids, Unity, Winston, Victor, Estella, Oakley, Fynnley, Yazmin, Zoey, Anastazia and Willow Loveless, Kiya Hendershott and Aria Calderon; and his brothers, Randy (Kris) and Robin Loveless; as well as his step-grandkids, Eli, Yance and Mya Hendershott and Skyler Warner.
A short graveside service is being held at C.E. Conrad Memorial Cemetery on Oct. 7 at 11 a.m.
