Memorial services are now scheduled for the Fairview superintendent who died earlier this week.

Robert Ricketson passed away early Monday morning.

His memorial service is this Sunday at the Fairview Mennonite Church at 5 p.m.

Ricketson’s funeral is Friday in Grand Rapids.

Staff and school board members call him a visionary who cared about his employees and wanted to see every student succeed.
