Ridgell, who worked for five years in Iraq as a private security consultant, had three daughters.
"He loved his softball, loved his steamed crabs," said Thomas Lyons, Ridgell's father-in-law, in the Sun profile. "Mike was a good father, a trooper. He loved softball, loved to play softball and coached his daughters' softball teams through this summer season."
