Michael Shane Kidwell, 44, of Front Royal, Virginia passed away on Friday, September 11, 2020 at Winchester Medical Center.

Shane was born on February 19, 1976 in Winchester, Virginia to the late Barry Kidwell and Pam Kidwell. He is survived by his mother, Pam Kidwell; and his brother, Shawn Kidwell.

He was preceded in death by his father and his maternal and paternal grandparents. Many know Shane by his nicknames; Duck, Daffy and his favorite, Uncle Duck. Shane had worked for both American Asphalt and Black Top Plus as an asphalt laborer, where he thought of every one of the boys as his family.
