RITCHEY, ROLAND ELWYN “ROLLY”
July 31, 1930 – September 19, 2014
With profound sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved Rolly. He is survived by his loving wife Joyce, daughter Laurene (Tom Hardy) and son Darcy (Anita). Rolly was adored by his grandchildren Curt (Sharlene), Alexi Griffin Venneri (Dave), Ted Griffin (Angela), Darci and Alana. He is loved and missed by great grandchildren Logan, Lucas, Chelsea, Dryden, Ronin and Griffin. He is remembered by his brother Carl (Roberta), John (Glee) and sister-in-law Claire. He is predeceased by parents Elwyn and Annabelle; sisters Hazel and Marla; and brothers Don and Joe. Rolly is fondly remembered by his best friend Fergie, honorary “son” Richard Langevin, and faithful dachshund Janie. Our family gives heartfelt thanks to Doctors Shepherd, McCauley, Wageman, and Kettner; Todd Gale, Community Care and Hospice House nursing staff; and Cooper Road Save on Foods Pharmacy staff. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Lung Association, Okanagan Central Small Dog Rescue Society or Inn From the Cold.
