Passing of Luke Ridenhour’s (6th Co.) Son


I have some sad news to pass on from Luke (Chip) Ridenhour (6th CO).  Luke’s oldest son, Jacob Ridenhour, age 41, passed away last Thursday from complications of FAP, Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), a condition in which numerous polyps form mainly in the epithelium of the large intestine. Luke said Jacob found out about his condition a little over a month ago, fought the good fight, but was not able to beat the disease.  Jacob lived in the Dallas Fort Worth area, but Luke has told us that due to the Covid-19 pandemic there will not be any formal funeral service.

Please keep Luke and Jacob’s wife and two children in your prayers.

Praying you and yours are well and taking precautions in these difficult times.

Fair winds…
