Obituaries » John M. Ritter II

John Meredith Ritter II, 86, of Warrenton passed away peacefully on November 7, 2020.

He was born August 19, 1934, in Confluence, Pennsylvania, to John Meredith and Louise Frantz Ritter.

After making homes in Florida and New York, John moved his family to Warrenton in 1973.

John attended the University of Florida and the University of South Florida and graduated from St. Petersburg College. He served in the United States Coast Guard, 1952-54, and the United States Army, 1954-56. An engineer, he worked for Sperry Rand Corporation in Clearwater, Florida, from 1958 to 1968 and for IBM in Owego, New York, and Manassas from 1968 until he retired in 1992. John was an active member of the Warrenton Lions Club for many years. During retirement, he enjoyed taking long walks, mowing grass, working puzzles, reading histories and mysteries, cooking and watching sports.

He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Sonia Shelton Ritter; his daughter, Paula Ritter Ray and his son-in-law Lyle; his son, David Paul Ritter and his daughter-in-law Kim; his three grandchildren, Alex Ritter, Nicholas Ray and Lauren Ray; his niece, Kristen Howe Kuikahi, and his nephews, James Howe, Kenneth Howe and Alan Ritter.

His brother, Dr. Carl Ritter, and his sister, Jane Howe Ritter, preceded him in death.

The service and interment will be private.

Because John was an avid reader, donations in his memory can be made to the Fauquier County Public Library.

Your third point works my memory the time after I was once an analyst, I did similarly give that you noted in your scientists must have a diary wherein they have to determine what things they have to separate inside the specific course.
