Donald Franklin Ridaught, Jr.

March 31, 1950 — July 3, 2023

Donnie passed away Monday, July 3rd, 2023, following a battle of dementia for the past 10 years. He was an excellent musician that performed in several well-known bands along the east coast, from the Carolinas to Arizona. 

His love for music was his life. Especially the B3 organ. He rededicated his life to Christ in ’87 and began to do worship music and theatrical acting.

He is survived by his wife, Kathy; five adult children, Danny, Wendy, Matthew, Jennifer, and Joel; fourteen grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; two nieces, Rachael and Abigail; four sisters-in-law, Melba, Dottie, Ruth, and Karen. 

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
