My heart was saddened to read of Warren’s passing. We had stayed in touch over the years. I especially love the memories from when I lived closer and we served together at Old Town Baptist Church. His support to me when I served as Sunday School Superintendent and playing together for Sunday night hymn sings. I remember he didn’t like the key of a hymn and automatically transposed it forgetting to tell me that was what he was going to do. It was It is Well and I was to play the echo. Needless to say the echo in a different key sounded terrible. He just looked over and smiled and the next round played the echo with me drowning out my incorrect key. We later shared a good laugh. Now though I think of that song and how he lived it out. I picture him and Etta stirring up things in heaven. Praying for all who were touched by his life and experiencing such a hole. With Love, Jennifer Mellett

Evie and Malcolm, Woody and I are saddened to hear of Warren's passing. We are not supposed to have our children go before us. We grieve with you. The joy is knowing his dedication to our Lord and Saviour. He is now rejoicing with our family who has gone before us.

Thank you for impacting all of the lives that you did. You were the most helpful and compassionate man I have ever known, and I doubt I will ever see someone so gifted with teaching as you were. Rest in peace.

My heart is broken today with the passing of an amazing man and an absolutely incredible teacher. I knew as a middle schooler that Mr. Kidder was a special teacher, but that became even more obvious when he taught my own kids. The impact that he had on both Mikaela and Keely with be something that they both will carry with them throughout their lives. RIP Mr. Kidder, you will be deeply missed but never forgotten❤️

I was really looking forward to the start up of the Sunday evening Bible study. You will be sorely missed Warren, but you have the wonderful privilege of being face to face with your Savior and Lord Jesus. Sing on Warren.
