Steven Ritley

May 30, 1989 ~ August 30, 2020 (age 31)


STEVEN RITLEY age 31. Beloved son of Pam Welsh (Jim) and Charles; treasured brother of Chuck (Courtney Jaskiewicz), Kristin (Ben Guss), Jimmy (Alyson), Jeffrey (Kaylee), Sarah, Matthew and Natasha; loving grandson of Chuck (the late Carolyn), the late Lou (Martha) Tuzi; dear uncle of Bret, Grayson, & Mason; caring nephew of Mark Tuzi and many aunts and uncles; cherished friend of everyone he met.

Steven passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. Our cherished Steven’s heart was too big for this world we live in. God has a bigger plan for him by taking him into his paradise to allow him to share his gift of kindness and caring with all of God’s family. He is being greeted by his dearest Grandpa “Big Lou” & Grandma Tuzi with lots of hugs and kisses. Steven will always be remembered for his gifts of compassion, thoughtfulness, sense of humor, and most of all his beautiful smile. He loved his family, his Jameson and Karma-bean, and shared a special bond with his brother/best friend Charles Michael, and sister Cool-Cat Kris. Steven was especially attached to his mom with whom he spent countless hours laughing, joking, and finding ways to make fun of anything she did. Steven’s passions were his love for boating/surfing with Tom and friends, snowboarding, camping, traveling/exploring, and of course his EDM concerts. Steve was a shirt off the back expecting nothing in return kind of person. He valued friendship above all else. As Steve often said, “Live and Learn, but never regret.” We love you Steven and we will always be together forever.  #GoodVibesOnly
