Although I worked at the School Plant services, I always enjoyed going to work at Kempsville High School. Mr. Ridges was always pleasant and never complained. RIP Mr. Ridges

It was my privilege to have worked with Mr. Isiah Ridges for a number of years at Kempsville High School. He was the hardest worker I have ever met. Always with a smile on his face and a kind word for everyone. GOD bless you, Mr. Ridges. Our world would be a much happier place with more people like you!!! Generous, gracious and loving towards all people!!!!

Devon Q. Evans (Grandson) Granddad, there is so much to say in a limited space. I would like to say, being in the Army for 26 years, we use the term quiet professional, someone who accomplishes the mission(helping others) without seeking praise or recognition. Granddad you are the epitome of a true quiet professional. Thanks for teaching me how to drive at 13 years old(don’t use both feet) and so much more in my 48 years of life; I am grateful. I can’t tell you how glad I was to see you on 23 Dec 2018 as you were driving around checking on Family members. You will be sorely missed, R.I.P Grandad!

I worked at Kempsville High School for many years.I used to see Mr. Ridges every morning and he was always smiling and was very kind to me. In one occasion I lost a necklace that belonged to my grandmother. I was very upset because it meant a lot to me. The next morning he went to the math office and had the necklace for me. He found it in the math bathroom floor. I gave him a big hug and he was very touched. when he retired, I missed his smile and talking to him. Rest in Peace Mr.Ridges.

Mr. Ridges was the kinesthetic gentleman. He worked so hard without a complaint. He always had a smile and a kind word. He would always tell me "don't worry a baby I'll take care of that for you." Mr.Ridges was greatly missed after his retirement.

I worked with Mr, Ridges for many years at Kempsville H.S. He was one the the finest men I've known and I will miss him. His loyalty, friendship, and hard work endeared him to staff and students at Kempsville.
