Edd RidingsI am a Veteran.

of Clinton, AR

December 6, 1944 - November 17, 2023

Edd Ridings, 78, of Clinton went to be with Jesus on Friday, November 17, 2023 in Clinton, Arkansas. He was born on December 6, 1944 in North Little Rock to the late Earl and Mary Ridings. He is preceded in death by his parents; siblings, Norman Holcomb, Willie Holcomb, Kenneth Holcomb and son-in-law, Joseph Matthew Cartner.

Edd was enlisted in the United States Air Force and was honorably discharged. What he enjoyed most was being surrounded by the beautiful outdoors. The most precious thing to him was his family. Edd married Verl Dean Page of Crabtree, Arkansas on July 25, 1967. They met in North Little Rock at Dee's duplex. She needed her water turned on and knocked on her neighbor's door. Carolyn said her brother (Edd) could turn it on, since he was outside. Dee came up to him while he was laying down turning the water on and Dee asked, ''You got that water turned on yet?'' Edd said, ''How can I with all these legs around me?'' Then their love story began. He was truly a one-of-a-kind man. To know Edd was to love him. Everyone knew when Edd walked into a room. He always knew how to make everyone laugh and feel loved. Trying to sum up Edd in a few words is nearly impossible. He loved the Lord and talked about Him any chance he got. His hobbies were hunting, fishing, creative crafts, wood working and watching football. He was a member of Clinton First Baptist Church.

Edd is survived by his wife of 56 years, Dee Ridings; three children, Terrell (Barbara) Feist, Kelly (Gayla) Feist and Aalesha Cartner; siblings, David (Carla) Ridings, Carolyn (Randy) Housley, JoAnn Holcomb, Jane Holcomb; six grandchildren, Callie (Allan) Brazzell, Chris (Kathy) Mapes, Anna (Mike) Garcia, Royce Daugherty, Holli Daughterty, Mattie (Dylan) Hayford; 13 great-grandchildren; one great-great grandchild; along with many other family and friends. Edd would have ended this with an old fashioned ''YUP''!
