In Memoriam: Ashley Rutledge, Owner of Vic's Ice Cream

Family, friends and generations of customers mourned the death of Ashley Rutledge, who co-founded Sacramento landmark, Vic's Ice Cream Parlor. Mr. Rutledge passed away at the age of 90.

Vic's Ice Cream has been a tradition in our family since my father attended McClatchy High in Sacramento 60 years ago. It has now become a Thursday afternoon tradition with our children as we visit Vic's every week to get a taste of their wonderful concoctions. This past week was no exception as we took a trip to our beloved ice cream shop. As we stepped inside we saw saw the huge outpouring of love and support for the Rutledge family with countless floral arrangements that filled the shop.

Mr. Rutledge will truly be missed, but his legacy will surely live on.
