Oct. 23, 1919 — Oct. 5, 2012
Paschal Olen Kidd, 92, of Duncan, went to his heavenly home on Friday, Oct. 5, 2012 at Country Club Care Nursing Center. Sustaining him in the last months of his life was his abiding faith and deep commitment to his Lord.
A celebration of his life will be held at 1 p.m., Monday, Oct. 8, 2012 in the First Christian Church, where he was a member for over 60 years.
Mr. Kidd was born Oct. 23, 1919 in Burleson, Texas to Earl T. and Minnie (Youngblood) Kidd. He grew up in the Walters area, graduating from Walters high School in 1940. He attended college for a short time, them joined the US Army in September 1941, proud to serve his country for the duration of WW II. He was assigned to the Third Photo Reconnaissance Squadron and spent months of his Army career in Saipan, South Pacific. He still remembered many of his squadron members and shared many stories of his Army years.
After his discharge, Mr. Kidd returned to the area. He married Janet E. Noblett on Sept. 7, 1946 in Marlow. They moved to Duncan soon after their marriage and he began a long career with the United States Postal Service, first serving as a town mail carrier, then earning the position of rural mail carrier for the Empire area. His Empire patrons became his friends and he was very fond of the entire area.
P.O. retired from the postal service in December of 1974, and enjoyed a few years of catching up on things before being elected as County Commissioner for Stephens County District 2 in 1978. He so enjoyed his “crew” and his fellow commissioners, calling the two terms he served a period of continual learning.
Mr. Kidd had a deep love for First Christian Church, particularly the Men’s Bible Class. He admired the teachers of the class, enjoyed the old hymns that were played each Sunday, and delighted in teasing the preachers he knew through the years. He was a 32nd degree Mason and a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge. He liked to garden, keep a beautiful yard, and watch the birds and weather. He was an avid supporter of Gabriel’s House and volunteered at the Mark Twain House until his health did not allow it. Most of all, he loved to visit with old friends and new, talking up a storm at every opportunity. Especially important to him were his grandkids and great-grandkids and he loved their visits until the very end of life.
Mr. Kidd is survived by two daughters, Dianna Morgan and husband Ronny and Rebecca Wade; a son, Larry Kidd, all of Duncan, eight grandchildren and a host of great and great-great grandchildren, all of whom will treasure his memory. He is also survived by a brother, Bill, and his wife , Marilyn, of Duncan, three sisters-in-law, Reba Atkins and Verna Noblett, both of Marlow and Lorene Kimberly of Joplin, Mo., and many nieces and nephews as well as a host of friends.
He was preceded in death by his wife, janet, on Jan. 20, 2010, his parents, a son, Gordon Kidd and two brothers, R.J. Kidd and Gilbert Kidd, both of Walters.
