Age 64.

Survived by wife, Lynne Ridner; sons, Corey (Te) and Aaron Ridner; sister, Jamie Arens; grandchildren, Zachary and Brandon Ridner; several in-laws; many nieces and nephews.  Proceeded in death by mother, Jenneva Castleman; father, Horace Ridner; brothers, Robert and Larry Ridner.

Allen (Al) Ridner was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee.  He is the youngest of two older brothers and an older sister.  He had his first child, Corey, at a young age.  

After serving sometime in the United States Navy, Allen moved to Omaha, Nebraska to start a new chapter in his life.  He began his career in Omaha, working as a roofer, and did that for many years.  Sometime later, Allen eventually met Lynne, his current wife, and they were married in September of 1989.  Only six years later, his second son, Aaron, was born. Over the course of Allen’s life, he worked for Standard Iron as a yard manager and crane operator, Harm’s Concrete as a truck driver, and he was currently working for Christensen Excavating as a machine operator. Allen worked extremely hard all his life.  He was a great example of a hard-working provider to support his family any way he could.  Allen was a big tease, and anybody that knows him, would always find themselves laughing when he was around.  He was always rough around the edges, but on the inside, he had a heart of gold.

    Allen was one of my oldest and dearest friends. I know he’ll be missed very much by his family. I’m going to miss him too, even though it was on rare occasions that I got to see him.
