COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A Richland County deputy who lost his life to cancer will be buried Thursday. 

Law enforcement officers from throughout South Carolina will be in Columbia for his funeral at 11 a.m. at Greenlawn Funeral Home.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announced Ryan died Sunday.

Ryan joined the Sheriff's Department in 2008 and worked as a uniform patrol deputy and in Victim Services.

Ryan is survived by his three daughters.

Ryan was profiled by WIS back in October 2011 when he returned to the force. He returned to work with his future uncertain, but he was grateful for the support system inside the Sheriff's Department.

"It's been a long road and hopefully will have a long road to go because that means it's a lot of time involved, and I'd like to have as much time as possible," said Ryan.

Memorials can be sent to the following address:

Richland County Sheriff's Foundation

Columbia, SC 29223
