Ryan William Rico was born on August 9, 1978, in Burien, Washington. He grew up in the White Center and Auburn area, graduating from Auburn Senior High School in Washington in 1996. Ryan worked for many years for Canopy World, first as an installer and then in sales. In 2008, he moved to Logan, Iowa to be closer to his family and started his business, Smooth Trucking, in 2010. Ryan married the love of his life, Chrystal Scott, on August 2, 2014, at the Logan Christian Church. On that day he also gained two children, Keirstin and Ryder. Ryan and Chrystal were members of the Logan Christian Church.

Ryan loved people. He enjoyed meeting people while driving truck, running the business or while out riding on his motorcycle. He was a friend to everyone. He and Chrystal enjoyed riding their motorcycles and he had just started teaching Keirstin to ride. Ryan and Chrystal enjoyed their time together and had recently taken up bird watching. Most of all, Ryan, also known as “Mrs. Rico’s Prince Charming” by the Woodbine students, loved his family and had a special place in his heart for the kids.
