Mattawamkeag – Sitting in heaven half an hour before the devil knew he was dead, Jason T. Rideout, left this world unexpectedly April 19, 2022 in one hell of a rainstorm, just like the one he skidded into sideways on the day he was born, May 18, 1965, his mama says. An outlaw, artist, lover of nature and all things wild (including his women), tinkerer, joker, fixer of things, and a great big loving soul – there were many sides to this man, both known and unknown, to those who loved him most. Jason will be remembered by many, mostly for his sense of humor and maybe just a bit for his loudness – I swear you could hear him a mile away sometimes. Jason is survived by his mother, Edith Rideout; daughter, Tori Masters and her partner, Nicholas Worster of Brewer; daughter, Kortney Kent and husband, Tyler of Hollyhill, SC; sister, Tammy Donald and husband, John of Hartford, CT; brother, John Rideout and wife, Penny of Mattawamkeag; sister, Kelly Cannell of Veazie; and grandchildren, Olivia, Bella, Gage and Alek. Jason is also survived by many loved cousins – Terry, in particular, who was like another brother to him; as well as numerous nieces and nephews, who all held a special place in his heart. Jason was predeceased by his father, Gordon Rideout, an honorary father in law, Fay Trueworthy, as well as grandparents on both sides his family. In true Jason spirit – no formal services will be held. A private, family gathering is being planned in the near future to celebrate Jason's larger than life personality that his soul and body could just no longer contain. To honor his memory - always remember to be kind to those who are in a rough spot, lend a hand or an ear whenever you can, visit your “town mall” often to find long forgotten treasures, and when in nature, always leave it as, or better than you found it. Love you Dad, till we meet again in the stardust <3. Messages of condolence expressed, at Jason’s Book of Memories at www.lamsonfh.com.
