August 24, 1974 - April 15, 2020
Ryan Alexis Mortensen passed away on April 15, 2020, at his home in Lompoc, California, from an unknown cardiovascular event. Ryan was born on August 24, 1974, in the Lompoc Hospital. He lived in Lompoc for all of his 45 years of life. He graduated from Cabrillo High School in 1992. Ryan owned R. Mortensen Construction Company and had worked in construction since he was 19 years old. In the beginning of his construction career, he worked for a fencing company and later worked for Ebbert Construction prior to getting his Contractor’s License. He was an excellent contractor and took much pride in his work. For the last several years he worked as a Pyro Technician for the Fourth of July fireworks held in Lompoc.
He enjoyed the outdoors and loved hunting, fishing, biking, motorbiking, camping, boating, and playing outside with his son Jett. Jett mean the world to Ryan, and Ryan would have done anything for his 8-year old son. Ryan was very active in Lompoc festivities along with his girlfriend, Tina Mercer.
Ryan is survived by his son, Jett, mother and father Betty Ann and Alexis (Lex) Mortensen, brother Andrew Mortensen, and numerous aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and cousins. He is also survived by his ex-wife Cara Mortensen and his current girlfriend Tina Mercer. He is also survived by many friends who loved him dearly.
