We're also getting our first look at the woman who is accused of hitting Ryan.
Nevada Highway Patrol says 51-year-old Colette Despain was the driver behind the wheel at the time of the crash.
Troopers say an anonymous tip came into crime stoppers leading to Despain's arrest.
She is facing several charges.
Ryan's wife tells us he has four stepchildren and six grandkids.
He was 48 years old.
