The thing is, I never had Mr. Ritchie as a teacher, but his enthusiasm for learning was infectious and you couldn’t escape it, whether you were in one of his classes, walking down the hall or watching him eat something truly revolting as his Dr. Digesto character at school assemblies.
He made a difference in many lives. In my previous post, to give an example of what kind of guy he is, when asked if they may name a building after him, he replies:
“I’m not big on buildings. I really hope they don’t name anything after me,” Ritchie said.
“Maybe a doorway somewhere, that’s it.”
If you would like to make a contribution he has asked that they be made to “Don Ritchie Memorial Scholarship Fund established at Marin Catholic College Preparatory High School, 675 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Kentfield, CA 94904.”
