Through tears of sadness and joy, we share with you that Larry Ritter (aka “Punkin”) has a new address–his eternal address in heaven. Larry went to be with Jesus May 6, 2018. Sadness–because we have lost a great friend and Joy–because he is in no more pain.
Larry was born in Troy, North Carolina on December 12, 1945 to Eulan Leon and Nannie Lou Page Ritter. He was a member of the last graduating class of Elise High School in Robbins, NC in 1965. Larry married Donna Lynn Davis on October 19, 1971 in Carlsbad, California. Larry and Donna were role models of Christian love and care in marriage. They have made their home in Fairfield, Texas for over 20 years. Recently they both moved to an extended care center in Mexia, Texas where Donna will continue to live.
Larry’s body was taken to the UT Southwestern Medical School to which he had donated it for medical research.
High school classmates of Larry’s will host a memorial service for him in the fellowship hall of First Baptist Church, his home town church, in Robbins, NC at 11:00 am on May 29.
In lieu of flowers, a donation in Larry’s honor can be made to Providence Hospice, 107 E. Commerce Street, Mexia, TX 76667 or CaringBridge https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/larryritter2
Condolences may be sent to Donna Ritter, 601 Terrace Lane, Mexia, TX 76667.
Mr. Ritter’s family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers at Sandhills Sentinel.
