Charlie Ritchie

GLENS FALLS – Charlie Ritchie,72, of Webster Ave., passed away Thursday, April 28, 2016, at Albany Medical Center after a short illness.
Born May 4, 1943 in Brooklyn, he was the son of the late James and Dorothy Ritchie
Charlie lived many places in his lifetime. In his younger years he lived with his parents. Other years, he living at Letchworth Developmental Center, Westchester Developmental Center, Wilton Developmental Center, Sweet Road in Queensbury, and finally Wester Avenue in Glens Falls.
He was a distinguished man. He was routine oriented, orderly and not without humor. His idiosyncratic ways made for a personality unlike others. For instance, Charlie was the only person who knew the broom at his home should be kept in one place, and one place only. So, he was forced to go behind staff and return it to such a place many times. Charlie liked hats; especially baseball caps and demonstrated his gentleman like behavior by removing his hat at the dinner table. He like the outdoors and enjoyed tearing up and then shuffling cards in a large bowl.
Charlie was certainly a man who knew what he wanted; evident when he either grabbed a staff’s purse and brought it to her or gathered his shoes and coat- both indicative of a desire to go to Stewart’s convenience store for a snack. He was particularly interested in the Chronicle newspaper at Stewart’s which he reached for at each visit.
Charlie had a favorite chair at home where he sat and watched television. He chuckled every so often for what one could only assume was humorous, solely to him. Charlie was especially fond of jello and pudding. He checked the cupboards frequently, perhaps to ensure there was plenty. And, when he went to the grocery store, he made sure to reach for more. Charlie wasn’t much of a cook. It was obvious when he walked away laughing whenever staff asked him to help prepare desserts.
With his predictable mannerism and overall unique character, Charlie was a man who left an imprint upon all. He will be missed by the many staff who provided direct care and clinical support for him throughout his years. He will be missed by his peers and housemates, and will be missed by his advocate and friend Janis Murnane.
Friends may call on Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., at the Carleton Funeral Home, Inc., 68 Main Street, in Hudson Falls.
The funeral service will follow the calling hour at 11 a.m., on Wednesday, at the funeral home, with the Reverend Paul Mead, officiating.
Burial will be private.
