Cradick, David "Kidd" David "Kidd" Cradick, age 53, of Dunedin, Florida went to be with the Lord Saturday, July 27, 2013 in New Orleans, Louisiana. He passed away doing what he loved, selflessly helping others by hosting a golf tournament for his charity Kidd's Kids. David was a nationally syndicated radio personality and host of Kidd Kraddick in the Morning on "Kiss FM" KHKS-FM (106.1). The show also broadcast on more than 75 stations nationally and the television program Dish Nation. Throughout his life David worked selflessly to improve the lives of chronically ill and physically challenged children by providing them with an unforgettable adventure to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The most important thing in David's life was his daughter Caroline who looks forward to continuing his charitable legacy with the organization. For many, David was a friendly voice on the radio in the morning providing a laugh and a smile on the commute to work or school. David is survived by his beloved daughter Caroline, and her mother Carol; as well as many close friends and colleagues. The funeral will be held privately for immediate friends and family. A public memorial service will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be sent to Kidd's Kids and The Hope Center for Autism. As David would always say as he signed off the air, " Keep looking up because that's where it all is".
