Ryan Haukaas, also known as Reverend Ryno, has passed away at the age of 31. He had a heart attack and a stroke.
A well known local radio DJ for Michiana’s 103.9 The Bear, Reverend Ryno had a popular program known as The Church of Rock. Clint Marsh, market manager of Federated Media, had this to say:
“He was very real. Whenever he was out in public people were just drawn to him.”
Let’s all send out good vibes to his family today. For those of us rockers who live in South Bend, Mishawaka, Niles, Goshen, Granger, Osceola, New Carlisle, LaPorte, Walkerton, North Liberty and Fish Lake, his voice and his Church of Rock will be missed.
