Mayor Vaun Ryan grew up on a farm in Heber City. After graduating from high school, he served an LDS mission in England and Wales before enrolling at Utah State University in Logan. That’s where he met his wife Joan and they were married just before Vaun graduated with a Bachelor degree in mechanical engineering with a minor in business.
After living in Oregon for a short time, Vaun moved his family to Roosevelt where he worked with his father-in-law for 30 years. His next business opportunity came in the service and parts department at L&L Motors.
Vaun has held many positions in the city including serving on the City Council, the Board of Adjustments and the Planning and Zoning committee. For the last eight years, he has been serving in his current position as the Mayor of Roosevelt.
Vaun and Joan have four children and 14 grandchildren. He enjoys working on old cars and being with his family in his spare time.
