Ryan W. Bragg, 47, of Swanzey, and formerly of Keene, passed unexpectedly with the love of his family surrounding him at Cheshire Medical Center on Friday, April 21, 2023.
He was born the son to Laurie E. (Bragg) Buckley on March 22, 1976, in Keene. He was educated locally at Keene High School class of 1994.
Ryan was employed through Southwest Community Service in Keene in the maintenance department. Prior he had worked at Phoenix House in Dublin doing maintenance, he had also worked at Hamshaw Lumber in shipping and receiving.
Known by many people as “Bragzy or Braggz ” and quite possibly a few other names. He was also proud to be the president of the Iron Militia Motorcycle Club in Vermont where he was a member for 5 years. Through the MC he gained many brothers and extended family that he held dear to his heart. He ran and attended many charity rides and functions but the Annual Toy Drive and the Autism run were by far his favorites. Throughout his 47 years, he was the type of person who left a mark on everyone he met and was a hard person to forget. Many great stories were made and shared about adventures from his youth and some that lasted way into his adulthood. Some people will remember him for many reasons such as his love of riding his Harley, his laugh, his music (stories of Motley Crue), burning big rubber, his love for good food. Others will remember him for his loyalty and love to his friends and family. Above all else the one most important thing Ryan will be remembered for, is being a GREAT DAD to his son Braxton. He enjoyed and lived for moments with him, camping, visiting with family, dirt bike riding, sledding, fishing, cuddling along with so many other wonderful adventures the two of them shared.
Mr. Bragg is survived by his son, Braxton. His mother Laurie and his stepfather Philip Buckley. His is also survived by his Aunt Holly Chamberlin and her husband David of Swanzey, his Uncle Mark Bragg and his wife, Linda of Marlow and his Aunt Jody Elsesser and her husband, Glenn of Alstead.
