“Leo J. Ryan Memorial Park is a recreational city park, located in Foster City, California and run by the city government and local citizens. Originally called simply "Central Park", the park was named in honor and memory of Congressman Leo J. Ryan. The park is situated on 20 acres which overlook Foster City's lagoon.

In 2003, on the 25th anniversary of his death, a special memorial tribute was held in Congressman Ryan's honor in Foster City, California.[4] Ryan's family and friends including California State Senator Jackie Speier and Ryan's daughters were in attendance. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that "Over and over today, people described a great man who continually exceeded his constituents' expectations."[4] Towards the end of the memorial service, parents of those who had died in Jonestown stood in honor of the congressman.

After the service had concluded, mounted police escorted the family and friends into Leo J. Ryan Memorial Park. A wreath was laid next to a commemorative rock that honored Ryan.[4]

The congressman was shot dead on Nov. 18, 1978 while on a fact-finding and rescue mission to Jonestown in Guyana, where on the same day Rev. Jim Jones and more than 900 members of the San Francisco-based Peoples Temple committed a mass suicide and murder.

As Ryan's aide at the time, Speier was at Jonestown with the congressman when Jones followers ambushed their party at the airport. She was shot five times and was one of the few who survived.”

That should have been written "mass murder and suicide". The few survivors of the Jonestown Massacre reported that over 90% of the victims drank poisoned Flavor-Aid at the point of firearms wielded by a small percentage of fanatically loyal Jim Jones followers, who then committed suicide afterwards. It was a mass murder. Best to remember that before you toss off those kool-aid drinker insults.

As one pedant to another:
Definition of 'drink the Kool-Aid'

More than 900 people, many of them children, died in a mass murder-suicide in 1978 by drinking cyanide-laced punch at the order of cult leader Jim Jones
