I went to school with both the Ritchey boys.  They were always very nice.  Please sent my condolences to his family.

This is very hard to hear, Tim was my very close friend way back then. I send my deepest condolences to his family.


Rest in peace Tim, we'll all be along before too long.

I was sorry to hear this about Tim.  I remember him well from High School.  He was always so nice to everyone. I pray that God will comfort his family during this time and give them peace.

My memories of Timmy and Lenny (as we called them then) are from North Junior.  They were great guys.   I am glad to see the current picture of Tim posted now with this "In Memory" posting -- as it shows that he still had that great friendly smile.  

Along with MIke Massey, I add my own prayer -- rest in peace.

Was so sorry to hear of Tim's passing. Remember Tim and Lenny well. Sad to see we are getting to an age where things are changing. Can't be 18 forever.
