Sam Ritondaro is a sexual predator just like his father, John Ritondaro (convicted of having sex with a minor boy) . Sam has been accued of rape, and of sexual assault on a teen 18 yrs old.  There are other things in his past as well.

A very low quality, narcissistic person. I would not let him embalm a worm, let alone a family member or friend.  Do not go to this funeral home of his, Ritondaro Fueral Home in Chardon.

He lost a gold necklace for a relative, that we wanted placed on her.  This is sad, and unprofessional.

We recently found out about the sexual predator and the illegal actions.

same ritondaro

AUTHOR: lloyd - (United States of America)

   I have known Sam Ritondaro for some 35 or so years. Fact I know
 all of his kinfolks. What I do not like to see is false accusations made about this man.
 Sam is not a sexual prevert,nor dose he have any record of shuch on file in the
city of chardon,ohio. I had both my dad and mom,laid to rest by him and he met both of their
 pre-paid requests. He helped my sister and I over the hard part of saying Good-by to our
 parents. Sam did an examplatory job on my dad and mdae sure he was as he wanted to be laid-out.

Sam Ritondaro, is being made to pay for his fathers sin,by a vindicative lady who just wants to
ruin his good name and the goodname of a family run funeral home for over60 years.

Sam Ritondaro "Family" ???

AUTHOR: Chardon - (USA)

The people who started this. did so out of disgust and sadness, as well as a public service /awareness.  Staying silent is a choice. God gives us choices. Sometimes, staying silent is a sin too.

Damnation? Aren't you in fear of Damnation for Sam Ritondaro? Is he forgiven by God already? Surely if he is, so is everyone who started this!!!!! 

Clean? Sin free? Pure?  No one is. But why are you bringing God into this? He has no reign over the will of man, and you know it. He cannot control what men/women do...cannot control the "will". Never, have you addressed the true issues. Sam Ritondaro is a sexual offender,a nd is dangerous to women. Period. The truth hurts, it really does.

As a youth of the family young man, I would suggest to you that by writing here, and "coming here to this page, you are making things worse. To make it go away, simply ignore it.  you are making it worse. Truly.

The police dept in Chardon has been burdened with this man, and his father...for years...decades.  You cannot use the bible as your shield. It was not meant for that. The best thing to do is admit your sin and ask for forgiveness, and then try to live in a God Like way.  

What comes around goes around.The people who started this are not written up here. Yes, they are sinners, but they are not on this venue. Some sins are minor, some are major.  Sins are sins. Once you get caught, people judge.  That won't ever change. They wanted to let the public know, and some of the public has been informed. Not enough people though. If any of the people/group who started this had assaulted a young Amish Girl, or pubicly drank/ and then slept with / raped a local woman, well then...they should be put on here. AS a warning to women in danger of them.

Sam Ritondaro is not a good quality person. He goes to church and knows theology to some extent, but does not seem to act in the way that God would like him to. He is a public figure, a married man, a Father, and a Son.  Keeping deep dark dusty secrets is a thing of the past. The truth is out, and he has to live with it.

He can learn from it, and he can change. But God, and the Bible, and finding scriptures has nothing to do with it. It is all a smokescreen for the family (which I think there are maybe 2 members) who thinks they can deflect the truth off of who he is and what he does. Total narcissim.

I am sure, like others we have asked for forgiveness. But there comes a time when forgiveness and clear/present danger have to be separated. The man is dangerous. Period.

I also believe that the aforementioned was not written by a "youth", as there is only one youth in this mans family, a son. I believe Sam Ritondaro or Terese Ritondaro are the authors.

Perhaps they can put their bibles down, and get real. Stop hiding behind God, who has nothing to do with this. Stop blaming others for knowing and sharing the truth. Stop threatening damnation, and pressuring others to look for scriptures to save their souls!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is appalling that anyone would protect this "man" . It is a clear indication of an unhealthy "person" .  Again, stop using the bible as your shield. It is not your shield and it is not protecting you or hiding you!! That alone, is sinful.

Please, stop

AUTHOR: concerned in Chardon - (USA)

As a concerned friend of the Ritondaro Family,  I can no longer stay quiet regarding the ugly, vengeful and serious damage caused to innocent people by the author of this post, by Stephanie, and by all of you who chose to cause potentially life long damage to the members of this family. 

 The mental anguish they must now endure because of all of your hate will most likely stay with them for years to come... 

 For all of you "concerned" community members who live perfect, pure lives... I suggest you open a Bible and begin to read... looking for scripture that may save you from damnation...  and while you are pointing out the speck in some one else's eye, try removing the plank in your own eye...

Hopefully, none of you will ever experience a crisis, a terrible mistake, maybe one of your children, or your spouse commits a sin.... or one of your secrets is let out and made public on the internet........and your familiy has to endure continuous pain and anguish.... while all the stone throwers and all the sin free folks that lead pure and perfect lives, crucify your entire family,

One of the young adults in this family is praying for all of you.. and is praying that you will find it in your hearts to pray for the family as they try and get through the pain your public witch hunt has caused.

What if this was you or your family?

Get A Life

AUTHOR: DAJ - (United States of America)

I have been a resident of Geauga County, not Chardon, for the last 20 years and know all the stories about the Ritondaro Family even without ever meeting them. So, it should not be a big shock to any one that lives in this area how these men have horrible issues. Throwing stones at them is just as bad. You are hurting the innocent family, maybe children, that will always have to live with this. You all have a free will in this country to not do business with them, get drunk with them, knowing their histroy, and end up having sex with them, only to cry rape the next day. What is wrong with you? You are setting yourself up for these circumstances. You all are chasing after this family like an angry mob sporting pitchforks and fire sticks. Give me a break. Act like adults. You want the police to help you? I think they have already done their part. Why don't you do yours?

                   You, are absolutely correct!    I don't know this place or the Ritondaro's,

    I don't even live in ohio!!!      But I googled the guy's name and found that  the 

    embalmer's license of John Ritondaro   has been revoked due to  him pleading guilty  to

    corruption of a minor!!!       What a scumbag!    Just goes to show that the fruit

    does'nt fall  far from the tree!!!        They probably practice necrophilia  too!

Dear Author, you are cruel


You seem to be attacking the wrong person here! If your goal was to alert the public, you did that with your first report. That should have been "end of story".

Why do you continue to taunt and torture a girl who is clearly a victim in all of this?

Perhaps you should take a few Sundays off from Church yourself and consider your true motivation and goal here. The tounge is a two-edged sword and yours is clearly out of control.

If I was Stephanie, I would meet you and kick your a*s.

Stephanie- Press Charges Already

AUTHOR: Chardon - (USA)

Stephanie - Meet you for what?  You could wait at the coffe shop for 15 minutes, or for a year, and no one is meeting you girl.   INSTEAD, how about you meet with the police, and press charges for drug induced rape??   Sam Ritondaro probably thinks you are a nothing, a no one ..definately not a friend ...- he left you probably right after sex,  his panties and wallet left behind, JUST LIKE A REAL GOOD MARRIED CHURCH GOIN MAN...  He could have said goodbye ... what did he do? Insult you instead, and run out with no panties or a wallet..... Maybe you drugged him?

Why have you NOT pressed charges? For the good of all women who will follow in your footsteps  (Bringing drunk married men home at night, who you trusted to be a friend... for a game of dominoes) 

Really Steph, you are looking stupid right now. Get off your big a*s and press charges. You are looking non credible at this point.

Press charges Steph. Be a real woman, and do the right thing

Stop this creep -  how can ya sleep at night?  He is pretty creepy- and then there is his crazee brother, and his "Father"

It would be harsh for the Chardon School System to find all this.

Dear Author

AUTHOR: What? - (United States of America)

Karen...  Wow.  Interesting.  You seem to have wrong information.  It is amazing you can make a claim like this (regarding me) without really knowing what you are talking about.  Coffee for sure.  I have nothing to hide.  I am not married and was not drunk that night. Two drinks, and a shot total.  I thought Sam was my friend.  We had known eachother for years.  Thought I could trust him.  Apparently I was wrong. Character assassination is not necessary.  He drugged and raped me that night.  He left my house so fast, that when I came to that he left his wallet, underwear, and his sweater. An investigation is in the works.  I did go to the police and the hospital.  But, if you have information to add that is real and true, Id love to hear it.  What you have written so far makes me question the validity of your claim.  I can meet you tomorrow at 1pm at the coffee shoppe by Joeys (Hilltopper plaza?).  I will be there and will wait 15 minutes.  Hopefully this is good for you.

We are a Groupf Of People

AUTHOR: Karen - (United States of America)

Just to be clear, we are a group of people in the area of Chardon and in Chardon who have filed this report.  It is our opinion that it is for the good of people who may come into contact with this person Sam Ritondaro.  Info has been collected, and posted here about this person as a business person and in personal life. There are people who have done business with this person, who were not pleased.

It is our opinion that since he has been accused of assaulting sexually and verbally a young Amish Gal, that we should alert people so they can be careful. It is our opinion that since an accusation of rape was filed as a police report (recently) that we should alert people.

It is our opinion that Sam Ritondaro is a phony, showing up to Church !

Are we judging him? Maybe. Should we? Maybe not. God says we should cast our stones only when we are free of sins. However, alerting others to the problems this married businessman has with the law in regards to sexual assault ..Well YES, we believe we may be helping someone out there, to avoid this person and to avoid the pain that comes with sexual assault.

Would you want a loved one embalmed and buried by a MARRIED business man who goes to bars at night, gets drunk and has sex with other women? Personally, we would not want that.

Talk to you face to face???

AUTHOR: Karen - (United States of America)

Talk to you face to face?

We tried to on that NIGHT. 

Maybe you will want to talk to God. Or, maybe apologize to Terese Ritondaro? Maybe you already have, who knows.

What should we talk about? How about getting drunk and sleeping with married men? Yes, let's do that.  We could meet for coffee, sound good? And what are school hours to you? Are you going to bring the little one with you?

Look, all of us are guilty of bad decisions at times in our lives. I am sure of that. We learn lessons from them, and then we aspire to do better next time.  The problem with what you did, is that it was so obvious, so out in the open... in public, and you have destroyed other people, because of it.  Heres hoping you do better next time Steph!

Sam Ritondaro

AUTHOR: Karen - (United States of America)

This is great!  Ok, Sam Ritondaro... so you think it is ok to cheat on your wife? It is ok that you sexually assaulted a young Amish cleaning Girl in your home. You have gone to counseling for that. Sexual counseling!

Do you really think anyone would buy your BS story?  Hearsay?  The Chardon Ohio Police Department has the police reports. We have copies. Reading them was a real intersting thing for sure.  Hearsay? What planet are you living on Sam? You are a pig, and everyone knows it. You are a narcissistic slob, and a sexual predator. The woman you had sex with a week or so ago, went and got a rape kit performed!!!!  She said in the police report that you raped her.

You have many girlfriends? Does Terese your wife know how many you have? So you go to Church, and you read your bible, and you think it is all okay?  We all saw you, and what a slob you are.  We saw it, we photographed you, and we are waiting for the right time to let the whole world know who we think you are. Just our opinion, of course  :}

Sam Ritondaro Funeral Home... ha the house of ill repute! Been going on for decades, hasn't it now?

How about insted of Church, you go and get therapy for your sorry a*s.

Sam Ritondaro, Samuel Ritondaro, Sam Ritondaro Funeral Home, Ritondaro Funeral Home.

How dare you go to Church. Suxh a fake, and everyone knows it.

No, you don't have many friends. Think about it.

The walls are narrowing in, it gets harder to breath, the thoughts run wild, and you have no control anymore.

We do.

slanderous gossip

AUTHOR: Chardonite - (United States of America)

Sam Ritondaro has not been charged or convicted of any crime. Who are you to accuse him on hearsay? He has many friends and many girlfriends. That is not a crime. Your accusations, however, ARE a crime, for which you should be held legally accountable. It's a perversion of justice that any crank can publicly make any unfounded accusation.

wow,,,,, how can any of you decide that you have the right to be God?  your evil comments, and disrespect to Jesus himself is pitiful.... May the grace of God fall upon your hardened heart and may God find it in himself to forgive you of your sin.....  are you with out sin? have you helped or harmed Mr. Ritondaro's family? Right now, I am working on discovering who you are, with the help of experts.. and when you are found, you will be charged with slander.... for calling Mr. Ritondaro a sexual predator.... and let it be stated, that Mr. Ritondaro has not been charged nor convicted of any crime... and although it is sad ifhe did indeed have sex outside his marriage, that does not make him a sexual predator, nor a criminal...
So, as you pass judgment on any one... i hope that you understand that your sin of your contempt and vindictiveness, is eqaul to what you have convicted Mr. Ritondaro of,
May God have mercy on you.

Sam Ritondaro, Sam Ritondaro Funeral Chardon

AUTHOR: Karen - (United States of America)

Sam Ritondaro, Samuel Ritondaro, Sam Ritondaro Funeral Home - My dead aunt? What r u talking about?  This guy has police reports in the Chardon Police Department.

Many police reports about Sam Ritondaro in Chardon. He is a married man, and goes to St Mary's Church. What he does on the side is disgusting! He has assaulted, and had sex with many women, all while being married and being a "Funeral Director"  . I don't even want to know what he might do with a deceased body.

Call the Chardon Police Department for yourself! It is ALL there. Can't deny taht now can ya?  His "father" John Ritondaro is a sexual predator CONVICTED of having sex with teen boys!!! 

These people have a past like you cannot believe. It goes on and on......

We live in this town, and we see who he is. Since you are in LA, I am guessing you would not know what Sam Ritondaro does!!!   Sam Ritondar, Samuel Ritondar, Sam Ritondaro Funeral Home in Chardon Ohio.

Ya know.. I am thinking now, YOU are probably Sam Ritondaro, aren't you???? Oh, I see... that is what it is!  Sam Ritondaro who was having sex with a married woman this past weekend. What is her name... Uhhh.. Stephanie?  Yes. A married woman and a married man out drinking and having sex in Chardon, Ohio. You were drinking, but guess what... not everyone around you was drunk. We saw it and heard it .... You cannot get away with this. You are married to a great gal, and she does not deserve more of your FAMILY SHAME.

Looks Like BURR FUNERAL home will be taking the Funeral Sevices .. All of them.

Did He DO IT with your dead relative?


Did he flip your aunt over and "have a cold one" before the funeral? I really doubt he did the things you say he did. I think you are mad because he wouldn't have sex with you and this is your sick revenge.
