Obituary of Ryan James Kiess
Ryan James Kiess
Ryan lived his entire life in Manhasset NY, and loved the Orange & Blue!
Beloved son of Nina & Kurt, adored brother of Nicole (26 years old) and Kimberly (22 years old). Dearly loved by grandparents Klaus & Nancy Kiess and Anna Calace‐Mottola. Cherished nephew of Mark Kiess, Julie Zier Kiess, Allene Kiess, Lisa Katz, JP & Kara Dowd. Beloved cousin of KJ, Jack, Maggie & Timmy Kiess and Anna, John, Elsa & Nora Dowd. Treasured by Bob, Christy, Catherine, Sarah & Lauren Weppler and Joe, Darlene, Rocky, Argie, Iliana, George, Shana & Brianna Maglio.
Ryan came into the world as a 9lbs 4oz baby and lived larger than life. At 6 feet 3 inches tall, his presence was known due to his height and beautiful smile. He was passionate about family, friends, sports, food, music, travel, and good times especially at North Hempstead Country Club.
He graduated from Manhasset High School in 2014 and played lacrosse, football and ice hockey (Captain). Ryan volunteered at the Manhasset Lakeville Fire Department Company No. 2 for three years. He also played the viola for eight years in the school orchestras.
Ryan continued on to play Division III lacrosse at the University of Scranton with his cousin Jack. There, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting (2018) followed by his Masters in Accountancy (2019).
Ryan was proud of his career at KPMG, had just received a promotion and always appreciated the support of his colleagues.
Ryan was loved by all…most importantly by the love of his life, Brianna Maglio, his college sweetheart.
He is predeceased by his grandfather, Joseph Calace-Mottola, and uncle, Ken Kiess.
Although his time with us was too short, he lived a wonderful life of joy, laughter and love.
Rest in Peace Our Beautiful Ryan!
