By Ridge VFD Membership
February 21, 2021

The officers and members of the Ridge Volunteer Fire Department regret to announce the passing of Secretary / Past President Timothy A. “Timmy” Ridgell on February 14, 2021. Timmy joined the Department in 1973 and was an dedicated, active member until his death. Along with being our current Secretary, he also served as President and was active on many committees throughout the years. He was instrumental and took great pride in the Ridge VFD Firemen’s Carnival. He was a member of the Southern Maryland Firemen’s Association and the Maryland State Firemen’s Association. He was involved in the Maryland State Firemen’s Convention in Ocean City.

Timmy is survived by his wife, Bonnie and their two children, Ashleigh Andrews with her husband, Jordan, and John Ridgell with his wife, Crystal. He has five grandchildren: Wyatt Allen Andrews, Colton James Andrews, Heidi Marie Ridgell, Hazel Mae Ridgell, and Josie Marie Andrews. He is also survived by his brother, Philip “Heavy’” Ridgell with his wife, Brenda, and sister, Sarah Lynne Ridgell.

Timmy led an active life outside the firehouse. In 2002, Timmy and Bonnie opened Chesapeake Trophy on Great Mills Road. His love of pool, and involvement in many local billiard leagues led Timmy to open a side business maintaining and felting pool tables. Timmy was an avid golfer and enjoyed traveling with his friends to golf. His Southern Maryland pride always shown through. Timmy was a constant fixture at the St. Mary’s County Fair, U.S. Oyster Festival, and was a Democratic candidate for St. Mary's County Commissioner in 2018.

The family wishes to extend sincere gratitude for all of the calls and messages of support during this most trying time. Timmy was a dedicated community member and friend to many. He was loved by all, and those who knew him called him friend. He will be greatly missed.

Friends will be received at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Ridge, MD on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. with Firemen’s Prayers beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Mass of Christian burial will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 25, 2021, at St. Michael’s Catholic Church. Interment will follow at St. Michael’s Church Cemetery.

The family requests any memorial contributions be made to the Ridge Volunteer Fire Department, P.O. Box 520 Ridge, MD 20680.
