  • lindsay strachan

    I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Ruddock. What a full life he had; wonderful children, grandchildren and his lovely wife, Marion. Mr. Ruddock welcomed Peter and me when we first came to the Valley in 1975. Upon entering his store, he always had a twinkle in his eye and teased me daily. Mr. Ruddock was an icon in the town of Dewittville and I believe this year, still attended the Bocce Ball tournament. He certainly was the patriarch of Dewittville and his presence will be missed but not forgotten. My love to you all. I am presently in Florida so will not be able to attend the celebration of life. Cheers Royce, to your wonderful and fruitful life.

Again my condolences to the family.
