Tribute & Message From The Family

Loving Son, Brother and Father


In loving memory of Ryan Patrick Santacroce who departed this life on Saturday, July 3, 2021.

Born October 28, 1978 in Willingboro, New Jersey, Ryan's childhood days were filled with a tremendous array of activities and interests, from playing every sport imaginable, to staying on the cutting edge of his favorite topics such as the newest in music, movies, comics, sneakers, gaming systems and games, and pretty much anything that was unique or artistic in nature.

Ryan was an incredibly talented artist both with respect to his skill set and his creativity. He produced a number of unique works of art that were the awe of many of his friends. His creative talents were most often on display, however, while he pursued his primary passion and his true calling - entertaining others. Whether it be telling jokes, pulling pranks, laughing or making people laugh, Ryan was a true jedi in bringing levity, enjoyment, and absolute hilarity to any situation.

Ryan loved Philadelphia sports teams. He attended well over two hundred Philadelphia Eagles games along with his father, his family members, and an abundance of friends, and was on top of the world when the Eagles finally brought home the Super Bowl in 2018.

Ryan loved his family and his friends more than anything, often times telling his closest friends that they were, in his mind, "family" as well.
Ryan is survived by his parents, Joseph and Darlene Santacroce, his sister Darla, brother Roman, his daughter Sydney and a legion of friends all of whom will miss his laugh and his smile dearly. He would be dismayed to know that anyone was feeling sad because of him, and he would so very much want for his family and friends to instead remember all of the love and laughter he shared.

Friends and family will be received on Saturday, July 10, 2021, from 10:00 AM to 11:45 AM with Prayer service to follow 12:00 Noon at the Danjolell Memorial Home of Frazer 392 Lancaster Ave, Frazer, PA 19355. Inurnment Private

I have no doubt that the angels in heaven are laughing at his jokes/ pranks and rejoicing to have such a good soul there with them. From the short off his back to helping anyone at anytime for any reason... Ryan, I'll miss you buddy... until we meet again...

It feels impossible to properly express our feeling as your family grief is unimaginable. We know time allows us to heal and the memories of joy filled times with Ryan will ease the pain. Please find time to care for and support each other as that strength will help your family mend. We offer our heartfelt condolences.
