Jeremy  Ritter

Jeremy Joel Ritter, 40, of Calhan, Colorado passed away on July 10, 2016 as a result of a car accident.
Jeremy was born on February 15, 1976 to Gerald and Joan Ritter of Scotland, South Dakota. He graduated from Scotland High School in 1994. He spent several years installing siding and gutters, but his passion for auto mechanics led him to a career as a top technician for Midas in Colorado Springs, Colorado. His goal was to open his own shop someday.
He had a special musical talent as evidenced by his participation in high school band, playing guitar in several local bands, and loved to do karaoke.
He leaves behind his daughter Breanna Ritter of Minneapolis, MN; his parents; sisters Melissa (William) Graham of Mitchell and Tamara Ritter of Rapid City; brothers: Ryan (Dawn) Ritter of Tea, Nathan Ritter of Renner, and Ethan Ritter of Sioux Falls; three nieces; three nephews; aunts, uncles, cousins, and the many friends he made along his journey.
He is preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents Francis and Mae Ritter and Frank and Esther Burke.

Joannie & Gerald, I was just reading The Scotland Journal and could hardly believe my eyes when I saw your son's obituary. Some things that happen in our lives are hard to understand and we ask God why?? I think that one day we will have an answer to all of these questions. For now we have His promise of life everlasting and I pray that your family will find comfort in knowing that He is always with us.

I was shocked to hear of Jeremy's passing. I lost contact with most of my classmates after moving away, but have wonderful memories of Jeremy. He made Band fun, maybe not to the teacher, but he was always making us laugh. He was funny, charismatic, and a sweetheart. I have many memories of playing together as little kids, when I was visiting Grandma next door. As teenagers, he was always in the driveway working on a car and we would chat. He was a good friend, and sorry that we lost contact. My prayers will be with your family for healing. Karen "Jerke"
