Ricky (Rick) Wayne Kidwell Obituary
With all his children at his bedside, Rick went home to be with the Lord on July 31, 2014. He was born in La Habra, CA to Jimmy and Shirley Kidwell. He lived in Oklahoma, and Oregon, but was raised and passed away in Bakersfield. He spent most of his adult life employed as rig hand and worked almost every position on the rig. He was also a brilliant mechanic and known for being the guy to speak with to get just about anything fixed. He loved to sing and play the guitar no matter how much he was embarrassing his children. He will be fondly remembered for his larger than life personality, love for others, big laugh, and bigger heart.
He was preceded in death by his father and son in-law. He is survived by his mother, three brothers, sister, two loving sons, adoring daughter, two daughter in-laws, three grandsons, one granddaughter, and many, many friends.
The viewing is taking place Wednesday, August 6th, from 4:00pm-8:00pm at Mish in Oildale. The memorial service will be held at the Mish Chapel on Thursday, August 7th, at 10:00am.
