Roberto Felipeí Kidd, 52
Along with us, the world lost suddenly a dear loving friend, son and brother, who was a lifelong resident of Henderson County. Roberto Felipeí Kidd, ìBertoî/ ìBoî, 52, never met a stranger and always had a helping hand for anyone that might need one. He was always with a quick smile and joke, just whatever it took to brighten your day and make you smile, even if it were laughing at himself. He always took that extra step to make someone feel special.
Roberto is survived by his mother, Helen Morgan; father, Charles Kidd; step-mother, Kitty Kidd, all of Hendersonville; brothers, Charles Kidd Jr., Ricardo and wife Julie Kidd of Gastonia and Hendersonville, and Walter Kidd; his loving step-siblings, Gwen Hyder, Kim Marlow, Lynn Gilbert, Dawn Peters and Dale Morgan; niece, Jennifer Kidd and great-niece Jules Morgan Kidd, both of whom he truly loved and adored. Roberto was preceded in death by his step-father, Charles Morgan.
Roberto will be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins and more friends than can be counted. Roberto was a 1977 graduate of East Henderson High School. He was previously employed at Eaton Corp and Borg Warner of Fletcher, where he worked most of his career. He later volunteered helping others less fortunate and delivering Meals on Wheels. Roberto had so many talents and interests; he loved photography and was a great photographer (A Kiddís Eye View Photography) and writer of songs and poetry. Roberto loved nature and had a ìgreen thumbî, enjoyed gardening, raising flowers, crafting, and was good with his hands. Many people come through our lives, but the world was truly a better place because of Robertoís brief time on it. He will be missed, but never forgotten. He may be gone from this world, but shall live forever in our hearts, minds and loving memories, no one can think about Roberto without smiling. Roberto, a better son, brother or friend could not be found, until we see you again, I LOVE YOU!
A Celebration of his Life will be at 2:00 Friday, in the chapel of Forest Lawn Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to your charity of choice, or just take time to help someone; that is what Roberto would do.
