Jeffrey Brookes Ridenour

August 26, 1981 ~ August 18, 2019 (age 37)


Jeffrey Brookes Ridenour, 37 of Thurmont, Maryland passed away unexpectedly on August 18th, 2019.

Born on August 26th, 1981, in Frederick Maryland, he was the son of Lanny Robert Ridenour and Kimberly Ann nee Culler Ridenour.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents John R. Ridenour and Bernadette M. Ridenour, maternal grandparents George R. Culler and Betty J. Culler. His aunt Laura Crawford and his two uncles, Larry Ridenour and Richard Culler.

Jeffrey was employed at R.R. Donnelly in Thurmont, Maryland. On the side, his true passion was running his own car-detailing business, “Uncle Jeff’s DetailinG,” which he named after his favorite role as a loving and doting uncle to his niece and three nephews. In his free time, Jeffrey loved to shoot pool, relax, and watch his favorite sports teams, the New England Patriots and the Boston Redsox. He was also a huge Tupac fan—from movies to music, he loved it all.

Above all else, Jeffrey always put others first. He was known for having a pure heart, always going out of his way to help others in their time of need. Jeffrey lived his life by one quote: “The world is full of nice people. If you can’t find one, be one.” He will be missed by many.

In addition to his parents, Jeffrey is survived by his brother Shawn and much-loved sister-in-law Sarah; his niece Zoë and nephews Blaise, Finnian, and Lucien; his uncle Rodney (Debbie), uncle John (Cheryl), uncle Blaine (Tracey), aunt Karen, aunt Dee Dee (Bobby) and many cousins, as well as his very special friends Jessie May (SIS) and Sherry Ramage

The family will receive friends at Rocky Ridge Fire Hall: 13527 Motters Station Rd, Rocky Ridge, MD 21778 on SATURDAY September 07, 2019 from 12-5 PM with a service of remembrance at 1 with Deacon Charles Barnhart officiating.
