Dwayne Rider Memorial Fund

Dwayne Rider had been dealing with health issues over the past couple of months.  Doctors identified an infection inside his heart that damaged an aortic valve and in early October he underwent open heart surgery to repair the valve. Dwayne crashed after the surgery and remained on life support for over a week. He made small improvements but then crashed again on October 18th and went to be with the Lord on October 19th. 

Dwayne was a devoted husband and loving father, a treasured son and brother, and a kind soul that touched many lives. His wife, Becky Rider is greifing and working hard to be strong for their 4 beautiful children, Lauren, Gracie, Garrett and Delaney.

At this time of unimaginable grief, the family will need so many things and unfortunately there was no life insurance policy.  The burden of finances is the last thing they should be facing.  Many have reached out wanting to help so in memory of Dwayne, we created a memorial fund. All fund raised will be accessible by Becky to help with funeral expenses,  living expenses and the longterm care of their beloved children.  Becky and the Rider Family are truly touched and humbled by  all the love, support, and prayers.

He Only Takes the Best
God saw that he was getting tired,
A cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around him
and whispered, “Come with Me.”
With tearful eyes, we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away.
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes “the best”.
