David and Cheryl had no children but loved to travel and were fortunate enough to have traveled all over the world. They realized how fortunate they were and quietly gave to many organizations and individuals over their lifetime.
David had many fond memories of growing up in the Parkersburg area and attending Trinity Episcopal Church. Upon his passing, he left a substantial charitable bequest to create the David and Cheryl Ritchie Memorial Endowment Fund. This fund makes an annual distribution to benefit the Trinity Episcopal Church in Parkersburg. This was one of the organizations that David and Cheryl quietly supported throughout their lifetimes. Now, by setting up a permanent charitable fund, the Ritchies' devotion to helping Trinity will continue forever.
