Growing up an all-star baseball player in the Rochester suburb of Henrietta, Reitz never wandered far from the arts and music, appearing in his first play as the Polynesian boy, Jerome, in South Pacific with his dad at age 11. He graduated with honors from Rush-Henrietta High School in 1973 and continued to participate in theater while attending Bowling Green State University (Ohio), where he primarily studied Radio/TV/Film, graduating cum laude in 1977.
Reitz's first professional acting job was in repertory with the Arts Centre Theater Company of Rochester, New York. From the fall of 1977 through the summer of 1979, he performed both adult (THE ARTS CENTRE THEATER CO.) and children's (THE TIC TOC PLAYERS) theater out of the Nazareth College Arts Centre in Pittsford, New York, including summer stock stints with the Mendon Playhouse in Mendon, New York. Over the following years, Reitz bounced between Rochester, New York City and Los Angeles, as he pursued his acting career, eventually landing in Atlanta, Georgia in 1981 with Noel Bagrowski, also from Rochester, who would become his wife that same year.
Reitz married Noel Janet Bagrowski in Rochester, New York on April 24, 1981. They have two children: Shelby Lynn Reitz (Eanes), born April 10, 1985, and Corey Bradford Reitz, born March 20, 1989.
Outside of acting for stage and screen as a member of Equity and SAG-AFTRA, Reitz is a member of the DGA, WGA, the Recording Academy, BMI and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. He is President of Ric Reitz Writes, Inc., an award-winning writing and production company, and the President/Manager of Sir Fir Books & Music, an award-winning children's music and publishing company. Specifically, Reitz was the creator and author of two children's titles: The Journey of Sir Douglas Fir: A Reader’s Musical and Second Chance Christmas: A Symphonic Play. Reitz is also a partner at Georgia Entertainment Credits, a former President and board member with the Georgia Production Partnership, and a former member of the Georgia Film Advisory Commission.
