38, of Indianapolis, passed away February 12, 2022. He was born May 15, 1983, in Indianapolis to Neal Dubree and Toni Bouldin Dubree. Ryan married April Tennell in 2002 and shortly after started a family, which he always felt was his biggest accomplishment in life. He loved his wife and children with all his heart and made sure they knew it daily with his amazing hugs, and never wasted an opportunity to tell them he loved them. Ryan was a huge gearhead and a MacGyver man that was always everyone's first call when they needed advice or something fixed. He always involved his children in his projects to share his passion and to teach them skills to be as resourceful as he was. Ryan worked as an RV technician for over six years for Mt. Comfort RV and was treated like family by the owners as well as his bosses and co-workers. He previously was a volunteer firefighter and medical responder for which he received rookie of year in 2012. He loved working on cars, trucks and motorcycles. Ryan loved camping and was a member of Nameless Off Road 4-Wheeling Family, and the Buell and EBR Motorcycle Clubs. Ryan did so much in a short time and always did everything at full speed and then would always find a way to make it even faster and more exciting. There was never a dull moment with Ryan. He had a quiet demeanor, but when he spoke people always listened because it was worth hearing his quick wit and inappropriate jokes. He never knew a stranger and will be dearly missed by so many.
