September 24, 1944 - May 4, 2020

R. Decker Reidpath, II., passed at the age of 75 on Monday May 4, 2020 in Hendersonville, NC.

Born on September 24, 1944 in Buffalo, New York. Son of Robert D. Reidpath and Lorna Jean Hilson. Loving father of Jacqueline, Carol (deceased), Erin and Robb, grandfather to Clarice, Drew, Spencer, Reed and Ryan and former husband of Maryann.
Decker was the oldest of 5 siblings: David (deceased), Lee, Laurie and Paul.

He graduated from the University of Buffalo and spent most of his life in the Northeast where he honed his business skills and forged partnerships as the leader of the marketing team for Oneida Limited in Central New York. After retirement, he resettled to the South, eventually making a home with his loving partner Marlena in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina.

Decker was a music enthusiast with an eclectic taste. He will be remembered by his loved ones for his sharp sense of humor and quick wit, his mean chili dinners, his support of progressive politics and of course, his love for the Buffalo Bills.

No memorial services are scheduled at this time
