Mr. Justin Allen Ritchie, 36

The greatest father, son, brother and friend has left us.  Justin Allen Ritchie recently passed-unexpectedly at his home in Winder, Georgia.  Justin was born in Orange County, California on May 29, 1985, to mother Robin Flett and father Kevin Ritchie.


Justin took the greatest pride in his children, Chanacy and Jacob Ritchie.  Justin loved his kids more than anything in his life. He loved spending time and taking mini vacations with his kids.


Justin served as a Respiratory Therapist at multiple hospitals treating countless patients in the Atlanta, Athens and Gainesville, Georgia area. 


Justin’s laughter and dad jokes with family and friends was infectious.  His positive demeanor reminded everyone that there was always something good to look at in life.  Justin was a connoisseur of heavy metal concerts, traveling the metro area with his son Jacob and brother-in-law and best-friend Shawn Urban, in search of the ultimate metal show.  


Justin was humble and accepting of everyone, never passing judgement.  He was light-hearted and never took himself too seriously.  Justin put family first.  If anyone needed him, Justin was there. He never missed a birthday or holiday with his family. 


Other family that will miss him includes the mother of children Michelle Ritchie, his brother Shawn Ritchie and sister Kimberly. His Grandmother Susan Coakley, step-father Rod Flett, nieces Elizabeth and Emily Urban, Kylee and Hailee Spicer, Rebecca and nephew Daniel Spicer.

Father and mother-in-law Terry and Kristine Werho, sisters-in-law Kaity Werho and Elizbeth Urban.


Although Justin is not here physically, we know he still with us.  Justin we see the lights flickering and know your light will shine in our hearts forever.


Memorial Park Funeral Home, 2030 Memorial Park Road, Gainesville, GA  30504 is in charge of arrangements.
