Living the dream
Attributing his family ties, Ryan Kilpatrick says his grandfathers each had a significant influence upon multiple aspects of his life.
“Both sets of grandparents, the Pearce family and the Kilpatricks, owned family businesses in Ruston — Pearce Lumber Company and Kilpatrick Funeral Homes. Both of my grandfathers, Reeves Pearce and K.D. Kilpatrick, had a major impact on me and I learned so much about life by watching them,” Ryan said.
