William Harvey Kidd Jr. passed away March 25, 2019 in Hemet,
California but was a Kingman resident for over 40 years. William lived
a long rewarding life from serving in the U.S. Navy as a POW/VDT of
the Korean War to working for Coca-Cola as a machine mechanic. Mr.
Kidd invested in the 100 slot machine for the cigarette machine back
in the late ‘50s-’60s. He was a Shriner and Mason for about 20 years.
He played many roles in both organizations.
In the Masons he was always there during “Cloth-A-Child,” and every
Christmas “Bill” would dress up like Santa Claus with a natural white
beard for the kid’s enjoyment. His nickname was “Billy the Kidd” with
that fitting his witty sarcastic personality. Mr. Kidd was full of
heart, laughter and a smile.
William H. Kidd Jr. is survived by his daughters; Cindy Kidd and
Bonnie Kidd Smith, son; William H. Kidd III, eight grandkids; Ron and
Michelle Bombardier, Christopher Till, Savannah Smith, Mac and Alex
Kidd, Lori Gore and Zachary Kidd. He is also survived by six great-
grandchildren; Ronnie, John, Donny, Michael and Destiny Bombardier,
Riley Till and six great-great-grandchildren.
