Kenny was my friend. This word gets used frequently, but in his case it describes my true friend. I first knew Tidwell in grade school, and we stayed very close all the way through college. Although, we drifted apart in our adult life, it never diminish my friendship for him. I have so many memories of Kenny that have been awoken since his passing. The bond we had will always be there. I do know it meant so much to him that he made his father proud, and he certainly did that with all his accomplishments. My affection for him will be with me for the rest of my existence. He touched so many people , and I was fortunate enough to be one of them. As he would say-Posey

My prayers are with Ms. Judie and her family during this time of
great sadness. I had the pleasure of knowing "Mr. K" for quite some
time. May his gentle soul rest in peace in the comfort of the Lord!
I will miss you my friend!

Who didn't know Kenny in high school? He was one that everyone looked up to. May God be close to the family at this time.

I was just explaining to Shirley who Kenny Tidwell was. I told her he was a classmate at North Caddo, not my class, but his dear sister Lydia was. I told her that Kenny was indeed the most popular student at North Caddo several year in a row. Everyone knew the name Kenny Tidwell. Although he was not as tall in height as some, everyone looked up to him. I didn't know the man, Kenny Tidwell, but I hear he was as great a man as he was a high school student. My prayers for God to comfort Lydia and his entire family and friends during this time. gary

Kenny was a lovely man and although I didn't no him for long he was a true gentleman and I will always remember him for the twinkle in his eye and how he welcomed me into the family when Jarrod married his beautiful daughter Amy and how he welcomed Jarrod.
He will be sorely missed.
RIP Kenny and God bless.
