Don Ritchie, the man dubbed "the angel of the gap" has passed away, at the age of 85. He passed away peacefully and was surrounded by friends and family. Mr Ritchie lived near The Gap at Watson's Bay for over five decades and in that time he talked at least 160 people out of committing suicide.
He told his daughter an offer of help "was all that was often needed to turn people around, and he would say not to underestimate the power of a kind word and a smile," she told The Sydney Morning Herald.
