Clifford Allen Ritchie of Parkhill, passed away peacefully, May 20, 2020, one day short of his 90th birthday at Chartwell Long Term Care in Parkhill. Clifford was born May 21, 1930 to the late William and Viola Ritchie. He spent his life farming with his wife Velma (nee Hughes, 2006) and their three sons north of Parkhill.

Clifford will be forever remembered by his sons Glen (Carolyn Gatecliff), Dwayne and Mona, and Bev and Marilyn. Lovingly remembered by his siblings Joan and Jack(d) Eagleson, Clare(d) and Eleanor Ritchie, Sandra(d) and Dave(d) Green, Sonia and Wayne Greb. A special grandpa to Joe, Christine (Adam), Brent (Stephanie), David (Jody), Mark (Leanne), Lee (Laura), Angela (Shawn), Jennifer (Paul), and Bill (Katherine) and great-grandpa to 19 great-grandchildren. Cliff will be fondly remembered by in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends and neighbours.

Clifford’s main focus in life was farming. After retiring from farming Clifford spent many years delivering mail, camping, and volunteering with Meals on Wheels. Clifford enjoyed spending time at the farm, a good game of euchre, and would never turn down a good piece of pie. Although he was a man of few words, his legacy lives on through his family. A private family graveside service will take place, although the service is private, we would ask that you join in the service from the comfort of your home at any time after 2pm on Saturday, May 23, 2020. Funeral services are entrusted to M.Box & Son Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers donations to Chartwell Gardens Memorial Fund Parkhill would be appreciated.

The family wishes to offer their heartfelt thanks to the kind and caring staff of Chartwell Parkhill for their care of Clifford. Please leave a memory or condolence online at

Condolences to all the Ritchie Family. Thank you for posting the on-line service. It was such a thoughtful way of sharing that time with everyone who couldn't be with you right now. Please know you're in our thoughts and prayers.

Glen, Dwayne and Bev, Growing up on farms, as cousins, we had great family visits, and your Dad was always on the move. He had
a drive that was uncommon, and used it to achieve things that were out of reach to many. During holidays, gatherings and visits he was one of the cornerstones of our Aunts and Uncles. He liked to razz my brothers and myself, and add a well-intended grin. He was a great man, husband and father, and that's something to celebrate! :)

Sorry for the loss of your father and grandfather. I (Michael) have several great memories growing up of coming over to knock and the door and talking with Cliff (and Velma) , also of his willingness to come over and help when he saw me as a teenager struggling to change a tire in a field. :) Bless you all as you spend this time thinking about him.
Michael & Krista & Family.

Dear Ritchie families:

John and I send our sympathy at the death of your Dad, Clifford. We have fond memories of Clifford -and Velma as well - while we were living on the Ritchie farm on the 7th concession. Clifford had to pull our car out of the snow many times - (he had to, so he could get to the barn to feed his cattle!) - and always did it with good humour. Lovely people - all of you.
