Dann Kidd
COLORADO CITY-- Dann Kidd, 64, passed away at his home on Friday, August 21, 2015.  He was born on June 11, 1951 in Colorado City to Milton “Snooks” and Bertie Redman Kidd.
Dann for the most part was a quiet man who lived a humbled life and told everybody who needed to know about the love that Jesus has for them.  He was a friendly man and loved to talk to people at any opportunity he had. When he wasn’t talking to a random person about his faith Dann could be found reading scripture to the residents in the nursing home, visiting his parents in the cemetery, or walking his dogs.  If Dann could pass on one bit of advice to all who read his obituary he would say Psalm 113:2 “Let God be magnified and highly praised.”
Those left to cherish Dann’s memory are his two sisters, Pat Boucher and husband Mike of Washtucna, Washington and Katie Stone and husband Jim of Mathis; his aunt, Louise Feaster; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and many friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Mike.
A memorial service was held on Thursday, August 27, 2015 at 10 a.m. at the 22nd and Austin Church of Christ with Branden Denton officiating. 
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Kiker-Seale Funeral Home.
