On Jan. 5 2021, our Lord and Savior called home one of his children, Ryan Lee Batman, beloved son of Lee D. Batman (Deirdra) and Deborah Filanowski-Craven.
Born in New London, raised in Milford, Ryan worked, played, loved life and enjoyed the company of his many great friends and family.
He spent five years in Ocean City, working at Wood Creek CC as assistant superintendent, making many new friends, before returning to Milford, where he would be closer to his family, friends, Fenway Park, MetLife Stadium and Long Island Sound.
Smart, funny, outgoing, charming and personable, Ryan will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed until we’re all reunited again in Paradise.
In addition to his parents, Ryan is survived by his godson, Giovanni Fuentes; sisters, Shannon (Joe) Craven, Hailee (Zach) Womer, Hannah Eccard, Heather Lafolette, Hilary Hickman, Kelli (Chris) Sargeant, Becki (Bobby) Macchia, and Erica (Eli) Burnham; brothers, Tim “T” Craven, Pat Tolland and Mike and Matt Fuentes; his aunt, Lynne Brown (Tom Kopchak); and uncles, Bob (Gabriella) Batman, Dave (Natalie) Batman and Phil (Ann Marie) Craven, and many dear cousins, nieces, nephews, great aunts and uncles and friends.
Ryan was predeceased by his loving grandparents, Linwood and June Batman, Robert Filanowski and Frances Filanowski-Stiewing-Lemay, and Croft and Ann Craven.
“I live on in a song of a bird, the scent of a rose, a kind spoken word; I live on in the dew of the grass, the warmth of the sun, a smile as you pass; I live on in the beautiful things that fill your heart with joy and give your heart wings; I live on, yes, my spirit is near, if only you look you will find I’m still here.”
Services will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to: St. Jude Children’s Hospital or Drug Free Kids, or a charity of choice.
The family is being compassionately cared for by the staff at Cody-White Funeral Home 107 Broad Street, Milford, Connecticut 06460. To leave online condolences, please visit www.codywhitefuneralservice.com.
