Ryan A. Bisceglia, 26, a vibrant, enthusiastic young man who loved music, passed away suddenly Sunday, November 6th, 2022, at Harrington Memorial Hospital, Webster.
Ryan was born in Worcester, December 23rd, 1995, the son of Gregory “Smitty” Smith of Charlton, and Noreen Ann Bisceglia of Worcester. He graduated and former crew team member, from Worcester Vocational Technical High school with a focus in Plumbing. He then attended Quinsigamond Community College. Ryan worked in the Construction industry for several years.
Ryan is survived by his father, Gregory “Smitty” Smith of Charlton, his mother, Noreen A. Bisceglia and her partner, Jim of Worcester; maternal Grandparents, Anthony J. and Noreen R. Bisceglia of Shrewsbury, his companion, Kayla MacKenzie; Aunts, uncles, cousins, and numerous friends, including Donna and her husband Bob, and Paul Bisceglia. Ryan joins in heaven his paternal grandparents, Earl “Buster” Smith, Karen “Kitty” Smith, and his first pet Boston Terrier and best friend “Rocco”.
Ryan had a huge, heart, bright smile, enthusiastic sense of humor and gift of music. He loved to compose, produce, and play all kinds of music. Ryan notably recorded and produced many songs on various music platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube under the name RMT4447. He could regularly be found in his studio with his music. Ryan also enjoyed playing billiards, fishing, vacationing with his grandparents in Maine, the holidays, and special occasions.
Ryan’s last ninety (90) days on earth were spent with his dad, working with him daily, contributing towards the development of a farm in Charlton, colloquially known as area51farmfresh. Ryan performed countless hours of landscaping, brush removal and land clearing utilizing a green method whereby a herd of goats is used in the process… they called it the GOATMACHINE.
Ryan became adept at all aspects of land management, and livestock care and timber felling and cordwood preparation, fencing installations, etc. including chores too numerous to count. In short, farming was really hard work, but very satisfying to Ryan.
Ryan adapted to country living and began to truly share his father’s vision of developing a sustainable agriculture venture, while simultaneously developing several house lots for residential construction upon land held by his family. He truly understood what his dad meant when he told him… “we’re in the Superbowl and we’re up by fifty (50) points in the fourth quarter… nothing can stop this Ryan, it took you a long time to realize your potential, and to get here, but now that you are here at the 51… it’s a lock.
Ryan was a dog lover, some of his fondest moments were spent with his first pup, a ferocious Boston Terrier named Rocco… ten pounds of dynamite. Later, after Rocco passed away Ryan was adopted by a Labrador Mix female named Cleopatra. She fell in love with Ryan, and never missed an opportunity to cuddle up to Ryan any time she could sneak into Ryan’s personal space when Kayla ran off to work for the Union. Cleopatra became a “service dog” for Ryan and she could read his every mood and break into Ryan’s psyche to let him know how much she loved him. It was fascinating to witness. Especially, sine Cleopatra was actually an eighty (80) pound Rocco.
