On Sunday, February 21st, 2021, Kenneth L. Rideout Sr passed away at his home in Sidney, ME. He was surrounded by his loving wife of 63 years and his children. He was a devoted husband, loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

Ken grew up in Richmond Maine, and attended school in Gardiner. He started working in the woods with his father at a very young age and grew to love horses and the logging industry.

He eventually built his own business, working for many years in logging and excavation. During his years in the logging industry, his most valued memories were the times he worked with his sons, building a family tradition.

His interest included spending time with friends and family stock car racing, camping, hunting, and pony & draft horse pulling. For 50 years he enjoyed pulling ponies and horses, and he was an active member of the Maine Draft Horse & Ox Association. During that time he was lucky enough to be a 3 time representative of the United States at the International Horse Pull in Nova Scotia. He enjoyed sharing his love for horses by participating in parades, sleigh rides and horse pulls across New England and Canada.

His most precious time was time spent with family; his kids, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He greatly enjoyed road trips with his wife across the country loved exploring new places and scouting out prospective horses.

Ken was predeceased by his son Lauren, “Chubby” Rideout; his father, Lauren N. Rideout; his mother, Annie Clark Rideout; his 3 sisters, Evelyn French, Annie Trask, Barbara Sproul and great grandson Jesse Tillson.

Ken is survived by his loving wife, Priscilla “Pat” Rideout of Sidney ME; son Kenneth “Petey” Rideout Jr., of Chelsea ME; daughter-in-law, Diane (Rideout) Benner of Warren ME, her son Lauren “CJ” Rideout Jr., and his siblings Chad and Travis Benner; daughter Sherry, and husband Edwin Tillson, of Sidney ME, their 3 children Jeremy, Joshua, and Justin; son Everett Rideout, and wife Tina, of Warren, ME, their children Nicole and Zachary; son John Rideout, and his wife Tammy, of Washington, ME, their children Kayla and Krista; daughter Tina, and her husband Tim Ross of Jefferson, ME and their son Ely. Ken was also the loving great grandfather to 13 great grandchildren.

Friends and family are welcome to attend visiting hours, Saturday February 27th, from 1-3pm at the Hall Funeral Home 949 Main St. Waldoboro ME 04572.

Fly high Dad. I miss you so much already and truly life as we know it will never be the same. Your memory will live on in all of us even though your body became to tired to stay with us here on earth. You were the best dad a girl could ever ask for, you are my hero and my inspiration. Like you said before you left me “My baby girl, my little baby girl “ and that is what I will always be. #daddyslittlegirlforlife!
