A Brave and Powerful Legend has left the Building
Dennis Ray Kidd, age 77, passed over to his eternal life with the Lord on July 19, 2020 at his home in Bracey, VA, with his wife and family by his side. Ray served in the Army National Guard. His past employment was with Magnolia Homes, USCO, developed a subdivision of over 30 homes and President of C&K Homes, Inc for 40 years. He was a Board member of the National Housing Association, a past member of the South Hill Chamber of Commerce, a life long member of the American Legion and an avid Nascar fan. Ray attended New Hope Baptist Church when he was able. He sponsored baseball and soccer teams in Mecklenburg and Brunswick Counties. He contributed monetarily or his personal time for many community or school events in both of these counties. Ray was a benefactor to anyone in need. He truly was a very generous man.

Survived by his children, Danny Kidd and his wife Kathy, Tracey Kegley and her husband Rick, Scott Kidd and his wife Renee, all of White Plains; Barry Kidd and his wife Kimberly of Roanoke Rapids, NC and Houston Kidd and his wife Tabitha of Durham, NC.
