James Norman Kidd, 80, passed away March 17, 2020. With the world as it currently is, a celebration of Dad’s life will be held at a later date.

Dad was the most giving and feeling man. He was very passionate about his family, friends and mankind and would give till the end. He was genuine to the core with a wonderful sense of humor which was light and inviting. He had an artistic flare, and when he put thought to a creation it became effortless. Dad had an innocence and infectious personality which made everyone feel comfortable sharing their stories with him. He also had a sense for saying the right thing at the right time and was encouraging and motivational. He lived by the phrase “love, love”.

Surviving to always love Dad, daughter, Kim Longley; son, Jeff Kidd; grandchildren, Adam and Peter Longley, Jacob Kidd; great-granddaughters, Izabella, Adaly, and Clara Longley.
