Robert Joseph Ridenhour, age 77 years, of Eugene, Mo. passed away Thursday, May 2, 2019 at the Eldon Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Bob was born on November 23, 1941 in Jefferson City, Mo. a son of Norman O. and Erma F. (Williams) Ridenhour. He was married on August 26, 1961 in Holts Summit, Mo. to Betty J. Shaw, who survives at the home.

Bob possessed a strong work ethic his entire life. He was employed with Valley Auto and later Harmen Glass in Jefferson City as a professional windshield glass installer for almost 40 years. Prior to his work as a glass installer, he grew up being a farm hand and working at Tweedie Shoe Factory.

Bob was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed fishing, camping and even cutting firewood. Some of his favorite memories were spending most weekends with family at their cabin on the Lake of the Ozarks. He also looked forward to watching his son work on his six-wheel buggies and playing a competitive game of pitch with friends and family while sipping a cold beer.

Bob will be remembered for his generous spirit and always looking out for others. In his later years, that spirit went to spoiling his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Survivors include: his loving wife of 57 years, Betty Ridenhour; three sons, Bobby Ridenhour (wife Jackie) of Eugene, Mo., Kenny Ridenhour (wife Julie) of Eugene, Mo. and John Ridenhour (wife Denise) of Lohman, Mo.; one sister, Betty Robb (husband Terry) of California, Mo.; 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Roy Ridenhour.

A private memorial service will be held at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to Robert Ridenhour Memorial Fund.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.
