Ryan Gisinger


Ryan Gisinger, 32, of Bismarck, passed away at his home on Thursday, June 2, 2022.

A memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 10, 2022, at Bismarck Funeral Home.  Visitation will take place one hour prior to the service. Burial will take place at a later date. A livestream of the service will be available on the Bismarck Funeral Home Facebook page for those unable to attend in person.

He was born February 27, 1990.  Ryan was the youngest son of Kevin and Lorie (Perman) Gisinger.  Ryan’s biggest love was his dog Rhonda, having her since she was small enough to fit in the palm of his hand. Ryan was passionate about cooking and was a long-time employee of Peacock Alley. When a change was needed, he went to work for the Cozy Creek Café at the United Tribes Technical Center.  He wanted a slower work pace and the ability to see his customers and public face to face.

Ryan also loved playing the card game, Magic the Gathering, with friends new or old.  He would play in local tournaments when he could, or just play with friends.  Ryan also really liked playing frisbee golf around town.  Video games were also a favorite hobby.

Ryan was involved in sports from a young age and played varsity in football and track & field at Bismarck High School, where he graduated in 2008.

Ryan always had a smile or a laugh for everyone he met, whether they were a longtime friend, or a stranger he was meeting for the first time.

Ryan is survived by his parents, Kevin and Lorie Gisinger; his brother, Gregory Gisinger and his daughter, Lucy; his brother, Matthew (Allison) Gisinger; his grandparents, Wesley and Linda Perman; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Ryan is preceded in death by his grandfather, Pius Gisinger; grandmothers, Edna Gisinger and Phyllis Perman; and great grandfathers and great grandmothers.

Ryan leaves us way to soon and will be missed by anyone who was lucky enough to get to know him.

Kevin and Lorie…. To know Ryan, was to Love Ryan. Eric and I have always loved Ryan. He was a delight to have around. He always had a fun story and a laugh that you couldn’t help but to laugh along with. There is rarely a day that goes by that either Eric or I don’t use the phrase “sneaky sneakerson”… Ryan used it a lot while he was with us at Northland, always with his big Ryan smile and great Ryan chuckle. The words, We are so sorry, just don’t seem to be enough. Eric and I will hold you and your family close in prayer. Although Ryan left us all too soon, he will never be forgotten.

So many people at UTTC commented about how much they enjoyed Ryan at Cozy Creek, and how personable he was. The student clubs use the Cozy Creek Cafe to run concessions at events for fundraising. We heard a number of times about how Ryan jumped in and helped them out. Without him, they wouldn’t have been able to pull off their fundraising efforts. Our sincerest condolences to his family.

Kevin and Lorie we are so deeply sorry for your families loss. Reading about Ryan was wonderful and filled with love. Keeping you and Ryan in our prayers.

Kevin, Lorie and family…we were heartbroken to read of the passing of your precious son. I remember that Kevin spoke often of his boys when we worked together at the auction. Sometimes those stories really made me glad I had girls 😉. May you know you are in our thoughts at this most difficult time in your lives. We must believe that God is Good All the Time, even in our darkest days. Hugs to you all. James and Ronda Gustafson
