It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our son, brother, uncle and dear friend Gary Ritchie. Gary was taken home to be with his Lord Jesus in the early hours of the morning Sunday April 22, 2018, at the age of 63.

Those who Gary leaves to treasure his memory are, his parents Walter and Nettie, sisters Terry and Pam (John), brother Kelly (Leona), many nieces, nephews and friends who dearly loved him.
