DURANGO, Colo. — Aiden Allen Riddle passed away Dec. 23, at the age of 2. Aiden died at The Children’s Hospital in Parker, Colo. Aiden was born on Aug. 5, 2009, to Jaclynn Shaw and Ryan Riddle in Durango, Colo.
Aiden’s playful and energetic spirit, curly blonde hair and bright blue eyes will always be remembered. Aiden loved playing soccer in the kitchen, shooting a basketball, "making," fingerpainting with yogurt, watching "dd’s," riding in his "waggy," playing with his cars and trucks, brushing his teeth, eating his dad’s macaroni and cheese, playing at the swimming pool, dancing to "moothic," and loved his momma "jaackie" and daddy.
Aiden is survived by his mother and father; maternal grandparents John and Carla Shaw of Bayfield, Colo.; paternal grandparents Rusty and Terri Riddle of Fort Smith, Ark.; Aunts Ashley Shaw of Lenexa, and Lindsey and Candace Shaw of Bayfield, Colo.; Uncle Keegan Riddle of Parker, Colo., paternal great-grandparents Jerry and Nornell Watson of Elgin, Okla.; and maternal great-grandparents Everett and Marge Hitschmann of rural Hoisington, and Darlene Shaw of Claflin. Aiden is preceded in death by his maternal great-grandfather Russell Shaw; maternal great-great-aunt Sister Urban Hitschmann; his great-grandparents Anne and Cecil Riddle; and many other family and friends.
Aiden’s services were held Tuesday at St. Columba Catholic Church in Durango, Colo., officiated by the Rev. James Koenigsfeld. Burial followed the ceremony at the Bayfield Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, and in honor of Aiden and his love of sports, a ball or toy is asked to be donated to those in need.
