Myrle A. Ritchey

Zion Wesleyan Methodist member worked on trucks

- — Myrle A. Ritchey, 77, of Stoneboro, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, Dec. 25, 2013. He received the greatest Christmas present ever: To see Jesus.

He was a member of Zion Wesleyan Methodist Church where he, his wife and daughter attended regularly.

He and his wife together carried a constant concern for the spiritual welfare of their family, daily leading in family devotions and prayers for each one.

The past 30 years, Myrle worked as mechanic on a fleet of trucks for Primo Distributers in Franklin for Cellone’s Bakery of Pittsburgh.

He was an avid hunter and passed that heritage to his sons, grandchildren and great-grandson.

He was dearly beloved by his big family and each one holds personal treasures in their heart from husband, daddy and grandfather.  

He is survived by: his loving wife, Shirley Hoover Ritchey, whom he married in 1955; and children, Pamela Reitz, Salem, Ohio; Clinton and his wife Darla, Wheatland, Wyo.; Bonnie Ritchey, Stoneboro; Phyllis and her husband Bob Thompson, Tuscon, Ariz.; Clyde Ritchey, Hartstown; and Jo Ann Ritchey, Cuba, N.M.

He is also survived by: two sisters, Carol and her husband Jim Hizer, Conneaut, Ohio; and Gloria and her husband Bill Cooley, Cambridge Springs; 11 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
