is survived by his devoted and loving wife of fifty-seven years, Lois (Ward) Snyder. Also surviving is his sister, Carol Jean
and Harold Lucas. He was loved by his five children, twelve grandchildren, and one great-granddaughter: daughter, Cynthia

Ridgley was retired from the Cumberland County
Redevelopment Authority. He loved fishing, listening to music, sitting on the porch, and traveling with his wife Lois. Over
their many years of adventure, they visited all forty-eight of the continental United States as well as two countries. Whether
riverside with bait and tackle, RVing across the country, or on their weekly Friday drives, Ridgley always had his wife by
his side. He was dedicated to his larger family and loved attending their many sporting, school, and club events and took
great joy in his grandchildren. Ridgley will be remembered by many for his playful humor and pockets full of mints, which
would be tossed at random to anyone around. His friends, family, and wife will miss his company greatly.
