John Ritter

A figure in television and motion pictures, he is fondly remembered for his role in the television comedy series ‘Three’s Company’ where he received an Emmy and a Golden Globe award for his work and ‘8 Simple Rules for Dating my Daughter.’ The youngest son of movie and television singing cowboy actor Tex Ritter, it was natural that he would follow his father’s footsteps into show business. He graduated from Hollywood High School and studied Psychology and Architecture at the University of Southern California, where he majored in Dramatic Arts and graduated with a BA degree in Drama in 1971. His first steady job was playing the minister in the television series ‘The Waltons.’ Buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills, his epitaph reads: ‘And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make…’ –Beatles
