Welcome to the memorial page for

Ryan Archer

August 18, 1996 ~ September 23, 2017 (age 21) 21 Years Old

Ryan “Archer” Archer passed away on September 23, at home. He was born in Livingston, New Jersey to Michelle and Colin Archer on August 18, 1996.

Ryan was a graduate of Middletown South High School. He loved music and playing the guitar, he loved psychics and math, but he most loved learning, and reading books most of us find difficult to casually read, or that are too deep to understand.

He was loved by so many family and friends. Each having their own special memories and moments that we are now learning about. His smile was not only infectious, but a true indication of how happy he was to be in the presence of those that he loved, and loved him.

Ryan is survived by large extended family that he touched so deeply. His parents, Michelle Archer, Colin and Theresa Archer, and Cindy Reich. His siblings, Sean, Juliet, Erin, Sara, Lauren, Tara and Patrick. His grandparents Fred and Patty Archer, Linda Halloran, Sheila Hillocks, and Wolfgang and Maude Reich. His uncles and aunts, Ryan and Lisa, Meg and Will, Michael, Jessica and Austen, and Yvonne, Jennifer, and Tina. 

In lieu of flowers a family scholarship will be set up in his name to both a physics and literature major at Rowan University where he was currently enrolled.  Rowan University Foundation, C/O Ryan Archer Scholarship Fund, Steen Hall, 201 Mullica Hill Road, Glassboro, NJ 08028

Viewing is set for Wednesday September 27 from 5-9 and memorial mass will be celebrated Saturday September 30 at 1215 at St. James Church, Broad Street, Red Bank. Following the family invites all to celebrate his life following the mass at 41 Leroy Place, Red Bank. All are welcome.
