James Matthew Ridgway

October 11, 1976 — December 15, 2022

Annapolis

James Matthew Ridgway, 46, of Cape St. Claire, MD, departed this earthly life on December 15, 2022, due to natural causes.  Born in Washington, DC, and raised in Poolesville, MD, James is survived by his loving wife, Dally Nataly Ridgway, his beautiful children, Robin Nataly Ridgway and Rogan Matthew Ridgway, his parents James Michael Ridgway and Emma Ridgway, his sister Jennifer Lynn Ridgway, and his brothers Jonathan Walter Ridgway and Joseph Edward Ridgway.  

 

Upon earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice in 1999 from the University of Maryland at College Park, James became a Clerk for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, D.C.  His professional career included contributions as a Juvenile Probation Officer, a Pretrial Services Officer for D.C. Pretrial, and a Senior U.S. Pretrial Services Officer for the U.S. Probation, where he presently served as the Location Monitoring Specialist.  James served the Court and the community by promoting public safety and supporting the fair and equitable administration of justice.  He did his best to treat all people with dignity and respect.

 

Besides being fair and kind, James was also very creative.  He was the most amazing gardener.  The landscapes he created were so elaborate and professional that people frequently asked to hire him. He enjoyed boating, crabbing, hiking, traveling, and skateboarding with his family and friends.

 

He loved to visit new places and try out new foods and music.  His children describe him as funny, and fun, yet he was firm and kind.  His friends describe him as adventurous and quite the daredevil.  He was a family man, completely devoted to his wife, children, and many relations.  We will all miss him terribly.

Hizo todo lo posible para tratar a todas las personas con dignidad y respeto.

 

Además de ser justo y amable, James también era muy creativo. Era el jardinero más asombroso. Los paisajes que creaba eran tan elaborados que frecuentemente la gente lo quería contratar.  Le gustaba navegar, pescar cangrejos, hacer caminatas, viajar y andar en patineta con su familia y amigos.

 

Le encantaba visitar nuevos lugares y probar nuevas comidas y música. Sus hijos lo describen como gracioso y divertido, pero era firme y amable. Sus amigos lo describen como aventurero. Era un hombre de familia, completamente dedicado a su esposa, hijos y muchas relaciones. Todos lo extrañamos terriblemente.
