Ryan Engholt, 37, of Elkhart Lake, WI, passed away unexpectedly and peacefully in Green Bay after a long struggle with the disease of addiction.

He was born on November 8, 1977 in Racine, WI, a son of Kirk and Lynn (Sheppard) Engholt. He graduated from Plymouth High School in 1996 and attended the University of Wisconsin La- Crosse.

Ryan was a loving, generous person, a good friend to many and his happiest times were spent with family.

Ryan loved the game of golf which resulted in employment for many years, including being assistant to the pro at Brown County Golf Course and caddying at Whistling Straits, TPC Scottsdale in Arizona, and most recently Erin Hills in Richfield, WI.

In his short time on earth he touched so many lives and the world will truly never be the same without him.

He will be dearly missed by his parents:

Kirk and Lynn Engholt of Elkhart Lake; brother: Brad (Kelly) Engholt of Longmont, CO; maternal grandmother: Margie Sheppard of Hot Springs Village, AR; and his paternal grandfather: James (Joan) Engholt of Racine; and special friends: the Mark Brooks family. Ryan loved spending time with his goddaughter and niece: Hannah Grace Engholt.

He is also survived by aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather: Bob Sheppard Sr.; and paternal grandmother: JoAnn Engholt.

Private family memorial services will be held at Suchon Funeral Home in Plymouth. Pastor Chris McKnight of Zion Evangelical Covenant Church in Sheboygan will officiate. Cremation has taken place.

In lieu of flowers a memorial fund is being set up in Ryan’s name to support the Junior Golf Program at QQO Golf Course.

Memorials may be sent to his parent’s address at 411B Crestwood Drive, Elkhart Lake, WI 53020.
