He had been in poor health for the past couple years, and repeatedly had received blood transfusions at the county hospital. However, his death still comes as a great shock to his family, friends and the community.

He was united in marriage with Anna Hook, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Hook, on February 14, 1934 in the Pleasant Valley EUB Church parsonage.
Mr. Ridder farmed for 11 years north of Wellsburg, in German township, and then purchased the home place six miles northeast of town, in Pleasant Valley township, where he lived at the time of his death.
