Ryan "RJ" Joseph Kidd Sr., 48, of Cleveland, Tennessee passed away from a motorcycle accident on August 27, 2023.
He was born on April 23, 1975 to Ronald Gene Kidd Sr. and Cynthia Barger in Fontana, California.
RJ enjoyed spending time and reconnecting with his family and friends, fishing, motorcycles, and of course the Georgia Bulldogs! If you knew RJ, you know he never met a stranger, and regardless of your beliefs about personal space, you either hugged him, or he'd put you in this awkward choke hold until you gave in and hugged him back! He was a walking tattooed teddy bear, and a lesson to everyone to NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER!
He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his mother Cynthia Barger; father Ronald Gene Kidd (Marga Kortkamp "Mama Marga"); Stepmother Kim Kidd; son Ryan Joseph Kidd Jr; the LOVE OF HIS LIFE and fiancé Cassie Ball; grandchildren Ryan Joseph Kidd III, Kingston Kidd, Ryder Kidd; Siblings Ronald Gene Kidd Jr, Jake Kidd, Cody Barger, Karrah Barger; Best friend and Brother By Choice Brandon Williams(Kaylynn Williams); God-Children Bo Williams, Brinley Kate Williams and several nieces, nephews, and many friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held at "Beer Thirty At Jake's Place" in Cleveland, Tennessee on Saturday September 9, 2023 from 2pm-close.
