Harry Moul Ritchie passed away on January 14, 2020. Harry was born January 9, 1930, in Cleveland, Ohio, to Harry E. and Wanda B. (Moul) Ritchie. A Santa Fe, New Mexico, resident since retiring in 1995 from a distinguished career as a drama professor, Harry is survived by his wife of 67 years, Margaret H. (Elderfield); sons David (Therese) Ritchie and Stuart (Julie) Ritchie; grandchildren Elizabeth and Zachary; several nieces and nephews around the country, and an ever-loving cat of 18 years, Tidbit. He was 90 years old and preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Samuel, who died as an infant. 

He is remembered and treasured by generations of students and professional colleagues and many friends and staff he shared the past 15 years with at the Montecito in Santa Fe. Per his wishes, a private family memorial and interment of his ashes will take place at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

In lieu of flowers, your kind wishes, prayers, and a happy thought about your favorite quote from Shakespeare are deeply appreciated. (Dim stage and raise house lights one last time, there will be no curtain callThunderous and sustained applause …)
