Zenner Family, My heart is broken. Ryne and my son Nathan were "two peas in a pod", as they grew up together as good friends in St Cloud. They played hockey together and spent countless hours hanging out making memories; sharing joy, laughter and fun. I will always have very fond memories of Ryne. He was kind, conscientious, funny and an all around great guy. He will live on forever in our hearts and memories. Rest In Peace, "Zenner Boy"... Blessings, Lori Morris (Hoefflin)

Awesome individual. Zenner was always one to have the brightest smile, great personality, and a shoulder to lean on. I looked up to you Zenner as a big brother, and always will! Love you brother and thanks for leaving a permanent impact on my life!

My deepest condolences to Ryne's family and all who had the pleasure of knowing him much longer than I. It was shocking and sad to hear of his passing. Ryne was always a bright spot in any day - always a smile on his face and never lacked for kindness, even when he was in the middle of a hot debate with you! He just always had a way of making your day better. The world has lost another precious soul.
