Jonathan E. “Jon” Ritari, age 42, of Deerton, died unexpectedly Monday, April 10, 2023 at his home.  He was born in Marquette, MI on October 24, 1980 to Peter G. and Tina (Dale) Ritari.  Jon grew up in Deerton and attended school in Marquette.  He started his employment with Marquette Fence Company in his late teens and worked on and off with them throughout his career as gate maker and welder.  He married Rachel Smith on August 6, 2005 and together they raised their children.  Jon was an avid outdoorsman who loved to fish, hunt, camp, and snowmobile.  He had a reputation that got many family and friends “mad” or maybe just a little jealous that he always got a buck on opening day.  Jon enjoyed sharing passion for the outdoors with his children and spending time with family and friends.

He is survived by his wife – Rachel Ritari of Deerton; children – Logan, Grace, Caleb, and Hunter Ritari; father – Pete Ritari of Deerton; brother – Peter J. Ritari of Sands; nieces and nephews – Austin, Haddi, McKenna, Skye, and Alexander; six great nieces and nephews; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.  Jon was preceded in death by his mother – Tina Ritari.

A celebration of life in Deerton will be announced at a later date.
