It is with great sadness I announce the death of Ag Leader Support Supervisor Ryan Carlson, following a tragic car accident on Wednesday morning.
Ryan was an 8-year member of the Ag Leader Support Team and was dedicated to serving Ag Leader customers and dealers. His teammates who knew him best will remember him as a funny guy who could tell a great story and was passionate about farming and raising cattle. He was known to easily lighten the mood with his dry sense of humor and the occasional perfectly-timed quote from The Office. But nothing overshadowed the dedication and pride he had for his family. He leaves behind a wife and two young children. His absence on the team will certainly be felt.
Many of you had the pleasure of interacting with Ryan in various ways during his time with Ag Leader. Please join me in extending prayers of comfort for his family during their time of grief. The Ag Leader Support Department will be closed on the days of the services to allow employees to pay respect to their teammate. We will update this blog post with service details if you are inclined to attend or send something in his memory.
