Ryan Delge Obituary


IOLA, KS – Ryan Emery Delge, age 33, of Iola, Kansas, passed away June 23, 2020, at Research Medical Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Ryan was born September 6, 1986, to Catherine Ingle and step-father Sam Smith.

Ryan graduated from Iola High School in 2005. Ryan attended college at Allen Community College, Iola, Kansas.

Ryan was a sports enthusiast. He loved to give his older brother, Chris, a hard time about the Chiefs since Ryan was a Cowboys fan. Ryan liked to give Chad a hard time because Chad “Earnhardt” Smith thinks he is a Nascar driver. His brother, Eric, was Ryan’s go-getter, and God forbid if he was late. Ryan also loved a good round of golf with his buddies. Ryan always made sure his drinks were safe and seatbelted in. Ryan was a one-of-a-kind and everyone loved him, and he will be dearly missed.
