Trever “Sheppy” LeRoy Ritchie, age 32, of Glenwood, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, February 15, 2021 in Chippewa Falls.
He was born on September 4, 1988 to Michael and Tammy (Boyd) Ritchie in Merrill.  He attended school and graduated from Wausau West High School.

Trever was currently working as a subcontractor installing flooring.  When he wasn’t working, he looked forward to going fishing, as well as enjoying everything about the outdoors.  He was everyone’s favorite brother, uncle and friend; he had a heart of gold.  Trever loved his children more than anything in this world and loved playing with them. He was an avid gamer and was very competitive, he was a quick leaner and mastered Mario Brothers at just 3 years old.  He enjoyed time on his rocket bikes and would always look forward to family gatherings and homecooked meals.  Trever is remembered by his loving family as a helpful, giving and loyal person that would always lend a helping hand.  He will be sadly missed, but forever in the hearts of his family and friends.
