Ronald Arthur Tritch

November 22, 1948 — August 22, 2023

Ronald "Ronnie" Arthur Tritch, 74, of Lafe, was called home to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Tuesday, August 22, 2023. He was born in Lafe on November 22, 1948, to the late Marvin and Lydia Lueker Tritch. Ronnie graduated from Lafe High School in 1966. He was a veteran having served his country in the United States Air Force from 1968 to 1972. Ronnie married the love of his life, Donna, on a very hot July 12, 1969. Ronnie started farming when he was nine years old, and he continued his family's legacy throughout his life. When he retired, the land had been farmed by the Tritch family for over 100 years. Ronnie loved Jesus, and it was evident by the way he lived and loved. He always greeted everyone with a smile that was warming and contagious. Ronnie loved to drag race; a hobby he would have never outgrow. He also enjoyed hunting. However, one of his greatest joys was his grandchildren. Family was special to Ronnie, and he would light up every time his grandchildren were around. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. He was preceded in death by his parents; paternal grandparents, Arthur and Emma Gerdes Tritch; and maternal grandparents, Charles and Louise Harms Lueker.


Ronnie is survived by his wife of 54 years, Donna Tritch; sons, Jason (Mindy) Tritch of Paragould and Stacy (Kendra) Tritch of Lafe; grandchildren, Jakob, Hudson, Reesie, Kash, Jett, and Fisher Tritch; brothers, Orin (Ann) Tritch of Lafe and Kim Tritch of Lafe; sister, Kerry (Kevin) Reddick of Lafe; and numerous nephews, nieces, and cousins.
