Donations for Family of Art Tidwell

Donation protected
On September 9th, after returning home from a trip to the emergency room, Arthur "Bubba" Tidwell passed away unexpectedly. He was 37 years old and leaves behind his wife and their four children.

Arthur drew his sense of satisfaction from the most important parts of life: love, family, and work.

His best friend and wife, Tonya, was also his most passionate love. When Arthur and Tonya were together it sometimes felt like you were in the presence of two people falling in love for the first time. Other times it felt like you were watching a couple of school kids who'd known each other since they were born.

He took great pride in his children. He was genuinely in awe of these people he was lucky enough to have brought into the world. His love of family was extended even more when he helped raise his sister's children as his own. He was happiest when he was with Tonya and the boys.

He took great pride in his work. Always optimistic, always kind and generous with his time. He treated everyone around him with respect and was quick to help in any way he could. His jokes were only moderately funny, but he told them often and with great pleasure. He was very much a southern gentleman.

Needles to say with the loss of such a wonderful man, his family is heartbroken, shocked, and have a long road ahead of them. Anything you can donate to help them with the funeral costs as well as living expenses would be greatly appreciated. All funds will be donated directly to Tonya and their four boys.

We just want to help make this time of grief a bit easier by relieving the stress of “How do we pay for this?”

Thank you for your generous donation.

With gratitude,
Friends of Arthur and Tonya Tidwell
