Ryan’s Relationship with His Parents

When Ryan’s parents split up, his mother clearly stated that she wants her younger son Todd and one of the twins; Derek is okay to come with her too, but she doesn’t wish to Ryan,
However, his father was clear that he wanted all his children. So, the judge gave full custody of the children to his father, and his mother had to pay child support to him. His mother didn’t even want him to know where she lived.
Ryan had a traumatic relationship with his mother, but he states his father to be his inspiration. He was 11 when he sneaked up at night behind his father, watching Bustin Loose, and he accidentally giggled. Instead of scolding him, his father asked him to watch the show with him if he wanted. That’s how Ryan came into comedy.
The inspirational comedian’s father passed away at the age of 42. At the time, Ryan and his twin brother were 16, and his younger brother was 12. Before death, he had a heart attack and got treated immediately and went home.
His brother Todd woke him up in the morning, saying that his father wasn’t breathing. The siblings went to his room and checked upon him and found that he was dead. This incident was tragic for all of them.
They called 911, but the ambulance came and refused to take the corpse and left the children with the dead body. Then, they called relatives, and the relatives told them not to inform their grandmother and lied that they only took him to the hospital.
Their relatives were on their way to help them, and the siblings just sobbed until they arrived. Ryan states that day they lost the only parent who cared for all of them.
