October 4, 2020
Allan Ritchie of Lucknow died on October 4, 2020 at the Wingham Hospital at the age of 92. He was the beloved husband of Violet (Culbert) who predeceased him in 2003. Allan was born in Ashfield Township on the home farm on October 22, 1927 to his late parents Isabelle (Nixon) and Wesley Ritchie. Dear father of his late daughter Brenda (Jerry) Huizinga and Bryce (Alexa Stoop) of Lucknow. Predeceased by special son Kenny Ritchie. Missed by his 10 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandson. Also survived by his daughter-in-law Wendy Ritchie (Andy Furness) of Whitechurch and son-in-law Russell Grant of Belgrave. Allan bought the farm he was raised on in 1949 when his parents retired. He farmed in Ashfield Township for many years having dairy and beef cattle and growing mixed crops. He moved into his home in Lucknow and continued to help daily on the farm well into in his 80's. Most recently you could find Allan tinkering in his yard or rocking in his chair on his front porch. He was always quick with a smile and a wave.
