Born March 9, 1978, in Kentucky, he was the son of Debra Hibdon, who survives of New Smyrna Beach, Fla., and Frank Ridenour, who survives of Florida. Michael graduated from high school in Port Orange, Fla., and then earned his bachelorís degree in business from the University of Central Florida. Michael has spent the last 20 years of his life with his wife, Jenny Zank, and they were married on Aug. 10, 2010. Michael worked for Progressive Insurance for the last nine years where he was an insurance adjustor. He was currently learning to play the guitar, enjoyed anything to do with the outdoors, and was an avid football fan who loved cheering on his 49ers. While the outdoors, football, and animals, were all important to Michael, nothing compared to the love that he had for his wife and daughters.
In addition to his wife, Jenny, he is survived by two daughters, Taigan Ridenour, who is attending college in St. Petersburg, Fla., and Kaelyn Ridenour, who survives of the home. He is also survived by his parents, Debbie Hibdon (Mike) and Frank Ridenour; one brother, David Ridenour (Ashley) of Daytona Beach, Fla.; one sister, Amy Ridenour of Daytona Beach, Fla.; a niece, Isabel; a nephew, Tristan; his father-in-law, Dale Zank (Cindy) of Marshall, Mo.; his mother-in-law, Nancy Button (Dave) of Warsaw, Mo.; as well as aunts, uncles, cousins and other extended family; and his three dogs: Koa, Mickey and Kipper; and three cats: J.J., Mittens and Sanibel.
Michael was preceded in death by his grandparents, Roy and Janice Hibdon; and his grandparents-in-law, Maurice and Marjorie Zank.
