Has there been suspected issues in the past? My sons have played ball for him for the past couple of years and I've never heard anything being said?? I would like to know if this was a concern before all of this came out.

I remember this guy from my little league days in McVille/Stillwater 20+ years ago...always thought he was a bit creepy. And he was a horrible umpire, to boot.

I feel like I have been kicked in the stomach. So many parents entrusted this man with thier children -- including me. You would think you could trust someone who has such a strong presence in the community and his best friend is the chief of police in Mechanicville -- how much safer can you feel?? We have been lied to, deceived and worse of all our children have been exposed to a predator. Who can we trust? Can I trust my children with their coaches? Teachers? Where does it end? We can't stick our children inside of a bubble but I don't know who I can trust anymore. I didn't want to believe this was true but with all the evidence that is being found how can I not? If there was an issue with this man years ago why did no one speak up about it??

I met him a couple of years ago through a cpr contact-he absolutely gave off more than a creepy feeling-and I certainly felt uncomfortable around him-in my experience someone who protests so much about "kids being their life" yet they havenone ad also donthave any adult relationship, always have something to hide. He is more than creepy-but our system does not allow us to report on "creeped out" feelngs -because afterall, wen you try to o tt YOUend up looing like the weirdo-Icertainly hope that they put him away in a place he so richly deserves

There were issues when he coached CYO basketball, nothing related to this, though. He was stealing money from their funds... But, at least 4 years ago, he coached a lassie league team and was kicked out of the league after talking inappropriately to some of the players online. I personally was not one of them, but I certainly wouldn't doubt it. I was always creeped out by him. I don't have a Myspace, but you can search his as "Bubba" in 12118 and see just how creepy he is.. I especially love the part about his love for kids. Honestly, how did no one see this coming? We need to stop being so unsure and do something about these situations when we suspect something. I want to be able to trust the volunteers of Mechanicville, not have fear for them. Gary Ryan seriously needs to be put away for a very long time. Repulsive.

Ya its screwed up This piece of dirt never did any kind of anything for his sick crime.Because of his ties to the chief(who ive heard is a closet clone of his friend)and his so called service to our community like emt work and all the various kids related organizations where he voluntered his time was enough to get a free pass with a slap on the wrist.Now the scumbags back on the streets to pray on our children.Where is the justice.I hear he lives in schroon lake now if you live there and you have kids be vigilant if you see him in your area.
