Obituary of Jerry Wayne Ridenhour

With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Jerry Wayne Ridenhour, 61, on Sunday, April 4, 2021. He was born October 2, 1959, in Roanoke, VA to James Ridenhour and Constance (Ridenhour) Ferguson. On May 26, 1984 he married his wife Barbara J. Decker, and they would be together for 36 loving and crazy years and have two wonderful daughters. Jerry was a loving husband, father, PoPo (Grandfather) and animal dad.

Jerry was the manager of Ridenhour Music for 17 years. He was a lover of music especially rock n’roll and in his spare time, he enjoyed playing the drums, spending time with family and friends, and relaxing at home with a dog next to him or a cat on his lap.

Jerry was preceded in death by his older brother Jimmy Ridenhour. Jerry is survived by his wife Barbara; daughters Jessica Frontus (Steve) and Nicole Gonzalez (Eric); his two granddaughters, Amora and Amelia Frontus; and grandson Madric Gonzalez. Jerry is also survived by his father, Jim Ridenhour (Cathy); his mother, Connie Ferguson; his younger brother, Joey Ridenhour; and nieces Crystal and Tiffany.

We would like to thank the staff at Roanoke Memorial for the care they gave our loved one during this difficult time.
