Ronald “Ronnie” Walter Kidd entered eternal rest on Tuesday, January 25, 2022 at Chatham Hospital. He was born on April 26, 1954 to Tate and Kathleen Hudson Kidd. He worked at Lomax Tile and Marble and E. E. Wilson Flooring for many years before owning and operating K & K Tile as a skilled tile mechanic. As a Gideon, he enthusiastically spread God’s word. He was an active member, as well as a past Master of Marietta Lodge 444 in Ramseur. He was a member of Riverside Baptist Church and enjoyed old westerns, Elvis Presley’s Clambake, bluegrass music and cooking for his family and friends.
Ronnie’s passion was music. He was an accomplished musician who “could play anything with strings on it” and could be found at Bluegrass festivals, Fiddler’s Conventions and jam sessions on a regular basis. He never shied away from sharing his talent and never met a stranger.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 46 years, Brenda Childers Kidd; daughters, April Presley (Arron), of Asheboro, Michelle Kidd, of Grand Rapids, MI, Katie Kidd, of Seagrove; son, Ronnie Kidd, Jr. (Melissa), of Seagrove; grandchildren, Taylor, Jacob, Charlie, Sam, Kylie and Annie Presley, Hunter, Noah and Logan Kidd, Ethan, Elijah, Ezra and Melia Kidd; sister, Lee “Sissy” Warn (Joe), of Texas; two nieces; one nephew; best friend, Garrett Chriscoe in addition to many other family and friends.
Visitation will be held at Joyce-Brady Chapel from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm on Monday, January 31, 2022. The funeral will be held at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, February 1, 2022 at Riverside Baptist Church with Rev. Gerald Hussey presiding. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
