Michael “Mike” Ray Kidd, 63, of Pittsboro, NC, went home to be with Jesus on Thursday, May 28, 2020.
He was born in Chatham County on August 7, 1956. He was a member of Emmaus Baptist Church. Mike's radiant smile and open heart greeted you as you entered the doors of Gum Springs Garage, the family business. Being a Sthil dealer allowed him to meet many customers who then became life-long friends.
When he wasn’t working at the shop, he was offering his services to anyone in need. Mike was known as the person who would give you the shirt off his back.
He was an avid NASCAR fan, with Mark Martin being his favorite driver. His favorite place to travel was Jamaica, where the resort employees knew him by name and looked forward to his regular visits.
Mike loved his grandchildren with all his heart. He enjoyed sharing his love of the outdoors with them, by taking them fishing, for a ride on his Massey Ferguson tractor, John Deere Gator, and skid steer loader.
He is preceded in death by his son, Travis Kidd and brother, Darrell Kidd. He is survived by his parents, Roy and Alice Kidd of Pittsboro, daughter, Rebecca Kidd Punch and husband Joshua, grandchildren Cheyenne, Makenzie, Montgomery, and Catherynne of Clayton, brothers, Roy, Jr. (Evelyn), Roger, Randy (Juli), sister, Sandra Strowd (Bob), and sister-in-law, Bonnie Kidd all of Pittsboro, NC. Mike loved his many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and best friend, Debbie Seaton and her daughter, Haley.
The service will be held June 2, 2020 at 11:00 AM at Emmaus Baptist Church Gymnasium, 2430 Silk Hope Gum Springs Rd, Pittsboro, NC, 27312. Wearing a mask is at your discretion. Alternatively, you will be able to listen to the service from your vehicle’s radio, 88.3 FM, in the church parking lot.
