Kenny L. Kidd, 57 - Gay

A much-loved husband, father, grandfather and brother, Kenny L. Kidd, 57, of Gay, WV went home to be with the Lord on, Tuesday, October 29, 2014.

He was surrounded by his loved ones at home during his passing. Kenny had fought a short, but rather courageous illness. However, despite everything he endured during this time he always managed to keep a smile on his face.

Kenny was determined to get well for the sake of his loving family. Unfortunately, God had other plans for this extraordinary man.

Kenny was formally employed by The Town of Belle for many years; having last worked at Broughton Foods in Charleston, WV.

He is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Belva; along with 2 children, Angie (Dewayne) Profitt, and Malisa Mullins; 9 grandchildren, Brittney Hanshaw, Kayla (Drew) Allen, Hannah Profitt, Shellydon Profitt, Hunter Profitt, Dwight Profitt, Jessica Profitt, Johnny Profitt and Laurence Brown; 4 great-grandchildren, Isabella Allen, Devin Brown, Hunter Brown, Serenity Brown and an unborn grandson (Zavier Dale Allen)

Additional survivors include brothers and sisters, David (Sue) Kidd, Donald (Sharon) Kidd, Carolyn (Glen) Rowe, Rosemary (Mike) Arthur and Starlena Kidd.

Preceding Kenny in death are his mother, Sylvia Cottrell; father, Eugene Kidd; stepfather, Homer Cottrell; grandfather Roy "Peg-Leg" Hackworth; and a very special niece, Melissa Kay "Sissy" Kidd. Kenny leaves behind a very special family dog, Molly Jean. He also had another special family pet (Molly Mae) who crossed the rainbow bridge some time ago.

Kenny was very fond of a very special friend, Janet Taylor. She is not only a friend, but a part of his family. We would have not been able to get out of the most difficult times our life, if you were not there with us providing all the love, care and the support. We thank you from the bottom of our heart. If a person is having a true friend like you in their life, then they are having the greatest gift which one can ever receive, and we thank you for being there as the wonderful person in our lives.

When Kenny wasn't spending quality time with his family and friends, you could always find him somewhere near a good fishing spot. Kenny was an avid fisherman as well as a hunter. He enjoyed camping with his family, and most importantly going on hunting trips with his brothers who he loved dearly.

Though your smile is gone forever and your hand we cannot touch we have so many memories of the man we loved so much. A special smile, a special face, in our hearts a special place. Memories are a gift to treasure of you; ours of you will last forever.'

A Celebration of Kenny's life will be held at John H. Taylor Funeral Home, Spencer, Monday, November 3, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. with Sister Pat Green officiating. The family will receive friends from 2-3 pm Monday.

In lieu of flowers, the family would greatly appreciate any monetary donations to help pay for funeral expenses.
