Francis Timothy Ridenour

September 9, 1957October 28, 2018

Francis Timothy Ridenour (Tim), passed away in his home on Sunday, October 28th, 2018. He was 61 years old.

Tim was born on September 9, 1957 in North Platte, Nebraska. Shortly after birth, the family moved to Azusa, California, and then settled in Centralia, WA. He was born the youngest of 6 children.

He graduated from Centralia High School and went on to work for the Centralia Rollerdrome, Churchill Glove Factory, and Kulien Hand Made Shoes for many years. He then chose to pursue truck driving and until his passing was working for Walsh Trucking.

He was always the “dad” that came to every event for his kids. If he wasn’t coaching them, he was on the sidelines rooting for them, no matter the distance. When his kids got older and had kids of their own, that is when he really shined! He was the best grandfather that anybody could ask for, and he loved his grandkids so very much. He will definitely be missed.

Tim is preceded in death by his mother, Mary Ridenour; father, Francis Ridenour; as well as brothers, Larry Ridenour, Harold Ridenour, and Daniel Ridenour.

He is survived by his daughters, Charrette Ridenour, Jasmine Ridenour, and Natasha Ridenour; son-in-law, John Hardenbrook; brother, Thomas Ridenour; sister, Patsy Lee; grandchildren, Alexia Hardenbrook, Kazmira Hardenbrook, Xander Hardenbrook, Kaira Hardenbrook, Zuriah Hardenbrook, Arlo Peterman, Hadley Peterman, and Lucas Lambert. He also has numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles that will miss him.

All Friends and family members are invited to attend the celebration of life service on Sunday, December 9th at 5:30 p.m. at Centralia Rollerdrome, 216 W Maple St, Centralia, Washington, 98531. This is a potluck style event, so feel free to bring something.
