Kenneth Charles Tidwell, “Kenny”, passed away on Monday, March 18, 2024 at the age of 64 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

He had a tremendous love for the outdoors and enjoyed sharing his hunting and fishing stories with anyone who wanted to listen. He found solitude at his cabin in Amite, a place that refreshed him.

A burial will follow at Gateway Gardens Cemetery. Pallbearers are Cody Fairburn, Conner Fairburn, Tyren Fairburn, Cory Cade, Chase Cade, David Cade, James Tidwell, and Danny Paul Duffy.

    So sorry for your loss. Kenny and I went to elementary school together in Greensburg. I knew his dad, Little Red and Jimmy well.

    Kenny was a good man and a wonderful brother-in-law. He made me feel like one of the family from the time that I met him. He mostly called me “brother-in-law”, which I really liked. Kenny will be greatly missed by me and so many others and I pray for strength and peace for the family.
