I have had the honor and privilege of knowing Ritchey for over 40 years. In that time, not only did I grow close to Ritchey, but was touched, shaped, encouraged, motivated, and certainly entertained by the time we spent together. His humility, patience, and kindness helped form the foundation of my life as we grew older together and continues to touch my life today. These character traits were evident in his passions for music, finishing antique furniture, his love of the outdoors, and his devotion to his family. Ritchey was unique. A man of many sharp, distinct contrasts. Ritchey was a deeply religious and faithful man but never wore these traits on his sleeve. Ritchey was quiet. A patient listener. Often in the background. However, he was a compelling, vibrant storyteller. Ritchey never tried to be cool when he was younger, or impress anyone as he grew older. Those close to him knew, quite to the contrary, he was very cool and very, very impressive. For Karen, the kids, family and all of Ritchey's many friends - I share the grief and my thoughts are with you all. Celebrate a life that truly deserves to be celebrated. Ritchie - I will miss you brother, love you and cherish our memories forever....

Ritchey was a gentle soul. I loved going out to the Clark's looking for furniture, but to be honest, I mostly enjoyed talking to Ritchey. Last time I was out there I had a long talk with Rich about the history and provenance of one of their finds. He was never too busy to share his knowledge with me. He took the time to call Fred to say how much he appreciated Fred's eulogy at the funeral of a dear friend. I am shocked and saddened by Ritchey's untimely death. So many people color our world in intangible ways - Ritchey was like that for me. My love goes out to Karen, Levi, Seth, and the entire family. I will miss Rich. He was a free spirit in so many ways - I loved that about him.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Having not seen Ritchey since he wrestled for my Dad in the 70s, when I saw him at my Dad's visitation, we must have shook hands 5 times and hugged three times. It was fantastic to see him and I appreciated the respect he had for the wrestling team and My Dad as the coach. Karen, my condolences. I have nothing but positive memories of him.
