Ryan’s Servicenter Celebrates 50 Years!

Who remembers Ryan and Son on Route 9, Lanoka Harbor, NJ?  I sure do…my mom and dad would get gas there when I just a child.

Jack Ryan, owner, started Ryan and Son in June 1967, which he successfully ran until 1995.  The original property, located on Route 9, in Lanoka Harbor was then sold in 1995. Jack’s son, Jeff and wife, Judy took over Ryan and Son, renaming it Ryan’s Servicenter located next to Lacey Collision/McDonald’s from 1995 to 2005.  In 2005, Ryan’s Servicenter moved to its current location at 603 US 9, Lanoka Harbor. Jack Ryan is still involved in Ryan’s Servicenter to this day. 

Jack Ryan has always been an active supporter of Lacey Township.  He has served on Lacey Recreation since 1985.  Jack assists on bus trips to Ocean County destinations, like the upcoming trip to Lakewood Blue Claws Game on June 6.   He serves as a security guard at Lacey Township Schools for evening sports’ games and events.  Jack is also a member of the Lacey Food Bank, assisting those who aren’t able to drive to the Food Bank.  Many of you may remember him from driving the Lacey Township school bus (1985-1997).  Both Jack and Jeff were members of the Lanoka Harbor Fire Co.


Jeff served for 35 years on Lanoka Harbor Fire Company, serving as Past Chief from 1990-1992.   He currently is District Fire Warden of Ocean County, NJ.  Both Jeff and Judy are members of the Lacey Food Bank as well as Rotary Club of Forked River.  Jeff and Judy, married since 1990, have three grown children Jourdan, Jacob, and Jacquelyn.  Let’s not forget their fur babies, Snow Bear and Moose, both rescues.











“We are a friendly family-orientated facility that goes out of their way to provide all the up-to-date technologies to keep your car running smoothly and longer,” shares Judy.
