Obituary for Cyrus Kyong Ravajy

Cyrus passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, September 19th, 2019. Survived by his mother, father, and brother, Hye (Hagen) K, Ali-Reza, and Alexander Jaehawk Ravajy, his sudden loss was devastating for the family. Cyrus was born with cerebral dysgenesis and, as a result, suffered severely profound mental and physical disabilities and a seizure disorder that placed him in the hospital many times in his life. A natural fighter, Cyrus overcame many obstacles and, against all odds, multiple stays in the ICU throughout his 30 years of life. Although Cyrus could not communicate verbally, he had strong opinions and knew how to voice them. He was mischievous and playful, destroying his brother’s precious books while no one was watching - somehow always managing to find the ones Alexander was in the middle of reading. He learned to turn off the lights before exploring a room, “blessing” the family with gifts of torn papers and scattered laundry, and the occasional busted diaper. He enjoyed playing with water bottles and rags, but more than anything, loved to be near his family. His laugh was contagious, and the love he felt for his family was a powerful thing to witness. Never has a family loved so deeply and intensely.

Cyrus exceeded his life expectancy by 20+ years because of the sacrifices of his family, whose only mandate was to ensure he could live a happy life. Cyrus’ mother, Hagen, did everything she could to enable him to live his life to the fullest, taking him across the world and country many times over. Cyrus inspired all those who had the honor of meeting him. He was a fighter, and at times a force of unbridled rage, but also of unbridled love. A light has gone from the world. Although his family will never be able to fill the void, Cyrus’ many lessons, both tragic and inspiring, will live on.

Cyrus’ Memorial Service will take place on Wednesday, September 25th at 2 p.m. at 3301 Wexford Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73179. Donations to establish a Cyrus Ravajy foundation to support individuals with disabilities can be made at: http://bit.ly/cyrusravajy.
