Ryan is survived by his wife, Audrey Jones Dufour, his son, Alexander Dufour, his daughter, Payson Dufour, all of Greensboro, NC; , and his parents, Erlene LeBorgne and her husband, David LeBorgne of Windham, ME. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was especially close to cousins Jeremy Barnies and Lacey Barnies of Auburn, ME, who were more like his siblings.

Your son Ryan, was a very sweet, friendly and caring young man. I worked with him at Schenker. We were friends on Facebook also. I had recently been talking to him about his struggles. I wish he would've realized it was something he couldn't fight alone. I pray you find peace and comfort knowing he was a great person and well liked by everyone he ever met. Much love to you during this difficult time and the days ahead.
