Phillip D. Ridenour, 54 passed into the Heavenly arms of his mother and the Lord Jesus on the evening of December 20, 2019. He was born January 14, 1965 in London, Ohio the son of David B. and Jeanette (Garris) Ridenour. Phillip entered the program operated by the Madison County Board of Developmental Disabilities attending school at Fairhaven School, later maturing into the program at MATCO Industries, the Board's sheltered workshop. Phillip was a great fan of virtually any sport and particularly loved his "Buckeyes". He never met anyone without a ready smile and a firm handshake. Next he would pump his fist in the air and say "Go Bucks".
He is survived by his father David Ridenour of London; sisters Melissa Ridenour of London and Sarah Ridenour (Josh Rose) of Westerville; aunt: Linda Ridenour of London. Phillip is preceded in death by his mother.
