In Loving Memory

December 30, 1955 – January 24, 2018


Wilmer, AL

Billy Cleo “The Outlaw” Kidd passed away at home in his sleep. As a man that loved vehicles and driving, he was fittingly a career truck driver and mechanic over the years. He loved to tell stories about the many cities throughout the US he had seen from his big rig.  His love for fishing, fast boat rides, a cold beer or some whisky, Alabama football, and having fun was evident in most of his everyday life. He was a jokester, loved talking like Donald Duck, and was always flashing a big grin.

A quote that describes him best: Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

He is survived by his longtime companion, Malinda “Sissy” Noel; his sisters, Brenda Merrill, Ellen Brackin, and Grace Dean; his brother, James Reed; his daughters, Shanna Myers, Natalie Kidd, and Monica Buckhault; his grandchildren, Blaine Buckhault and Bionca Buckhault, and numerous other friends and family.

Expressions of condolence may be offered at Arrangements are by Hughes Funeral Home, 7951 American Way, Daphne, AL.
