Family was paramount to James and he took advantage of those times to be with his family whether it was time spent on the farm or traveling with them. Never at too great a distance from James there was always one presence, his beloved dog, Pepper. Surviving James is his wife of 65 years, Amelia McGinnis Rider. His children are Martha Ann van Drew, James Porter Rider, and Betty Jo Adkins. There are six grandchildren and six great grandchildren. One brother, Dewey Rider, also survives.

Mr. Richard Kipp Behenna, a devoted husband, exemplary parent and a kind and compassionate friend, left this world peacefully on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 and entered into the presence of his Heavenly Father, now in a world of no more pain and suffering. He was born in Miami, Florida and lived in Cutler Ridge. During those years as a Ridge Rat he played baseball, football and soccer. Rick graduated from Miami Southridge in 1978 and signed with the Atlanta Braves Baseball organization. He was traded to the Cleveland Indians in 1983 and continued his baseball career. In 1984 he met his wife of 27 years, Kimberly Smith, who fell madly in love with him and devoted her life to his dreams and goals. He used his God given talent, skill and knowledge of baseball to share with the community. Rick's passion for baseball drove him to coach at East Coweta High School for several seasons and give private lessons to up and coming baseball players in surrounding communities. He also developed and organized a summer college baseball league for local college players. Rick always gave back all of the knowledge he developed as a professional baseball player in hopes that it would help young men achieve their dreams. Most of all, his desire was to instill good work ethic, discipline, character and integrity in the development of all whom he came into contact with. Rick will forever be remembered as a great leader, coach, friend, father and husband. Surviving Mr. Richard Kipp Behenna are his wife Kimberly and his children Bowen & Brandon.
