Perished on the Titanic
New York, U.S.A.
Drowned in the Titanic after being knocked out by Thomas Ryan
He attempted to stop third class passengers from going to the higher decks when it began to sink. Jack Dawson demanded he open the gate but the man denied, causing Jack to call him a bitch as he furiously shook the gates to get out. Seeing it was pointless, Jack, Thomas Ryan and Jack's best friend Fabrizio De Rossi grabbed a bench nearby and forced it from its hinges to ram the gates. Rose DeWitt Bukater pulled passengers back as they did so.
The man was furious that they had done so and continued to fruitlessly demand them to stop and go back only to be knocked at by Thomas.
Given he was knocked out so low in the boat, it is likely he perished.
He was portrayed by Nick Meaney in the film.
