Gregory L. Ritzinger: Beloved husband, brother, father, uncle, and papa passed away peacefully and surrounded by family on July 26 after a long and brave battle with cancer. An avid runner, mechanic, banjo player, and Block Islander, Greg built a loving family in Newtown, where he lived for over 30 years.

For much of that time you could find him jogging back roads and trails or serving his neighbors as a volunteer EMT.

A deeply devoted husband, brother, father, and grandfather, Greg’s most cherished times were with his wife, Josette; sister, Cindy; children, Louis, Evan, and Ellen; daughter-in-law, Rachel; and grandson, Elijah, who will always love his “Papa.”

Greg showed his love for those around him by doing, and could always be counted on to fix an ailing car, provide how-to advice, or install a set of pesky blinds. He will be deeply missed, always.

Friends may call Sunday, August 6, from 1 to 3 pm, to Honan Funeral Home, 58 Main Street, Newtown. A Memorial Service will follow at 3 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the RVNA Comfortwell Team (Hospice) at 27 Governor Street, Ridgefield CT 06877.
