March 19, 1941—July 3, 2018, born in Dalhart, TX, to Roma and Carrick Lee Ridling, died peacefully in his home surrounded by his wife of 52 years and his three children.
He is survived by his wife, Miriam, and three children, Nancy Greenlaw, Andrew Ridling, and Amy Ridling, and his beloved grandchildren AJ and Hope Greenlaw and Nichole Ridling. He worked at C&H Sugar Refinery for 39 years, retiring in 1998.
Jerry was an avid skier and duck hunter and enjoyed his retirement winters skiing in Colorado. Per his request, there will be no public services. Donations to California Waterfowl would make him happy.
