Red Ryder passed away yesterday morning

Comment from Paul Sorbara…

Red Ryder passed away yesterday morning at North York General Hospital.  He was 92.  He wanted a simple cremation and that is what he will get. However the family will be planning a memorial service through the Legion.

From his nephew James Pitzel…

Thank you very much for posting these pictures of Red Ryder. He passed the other day. Red was my Uncle and his service to Canada and the world means a great deal to me. Having served in the Canadian Forces myself, these pictures are priceless for me! I have fond memories talking with Uncle Red about the times he flew. The group picture that he is inferred to, sure looks like him…..I am sure it is him.

This Ken Harvey is my father and he turned 92 on September 1, 2014 and lives with me in Toronto.  He has many stories of the war and shares them with his family. He has a number of photos from that time and I will try and load them at some point soon.
