His grandchildren today are:James Roland Ridlehuber, Rochelle Ridlehuber, Michelle Ridlehuber Hampton, Heather Windham and Alison Green.His great-grandchildren today are:Reagan and Corbin Ridlehuber, and Colby Hampton. While living in Italy, George was a farmer and also worked at Tyler Refrigeration in Waxahachie, Texas.His children remember him as a hardworking man who worked long hours on a farm and in a factory to support his family. He was a handsome man who enjoyed music and played the guitar. He had a wonderful sense of humor and always had a joke to tell. His life was cut too short by a sudden illness. He died at the young age of 42 in a Hillsboro hospital on July 2, 1967. His death was a shock and a tragic loss to his wife, children, and friends. But when he is thought of or talked about, one can't help but smile, laugh, or chuckle about something humorous that he did or said. He is missed!

Daddy, I thought about you when I saw the Sunflower. I remember the days on the farm where you worked in the fields to destroy these. Love you and still miss you after 39 years.
