John “Jack” Ritchie, a longtime resident of Schaumburg, passed away at the West Suburban Nursing Facility, on Saturday, January 20th at age 85.
Jack had a varied career, culminating in a long status as painter at the Four Seasons Hotel of Chicago, often deployed in their “swat team” to assist in other hotels throughout the world. An outstanding athlete at Senn High School, Jack had hopes of playing professional baseball, but the call to duty in the Korean War disrupted his plans. He continued active in later years in numerous youth sporting activities.
Jack is survived by his daughter, Karen; sons, Glenn and Jim; and former wife, Phyllis Ritchie.
