Kenneth Lynn Tidwell

Contributor: hlubean Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

(Written by Marie Hofmann) Kenneth Lynn Tidwell, born 24th November, 1912, in Mt Pleasant, Sanpete County, Utah, was the 10th and last child of Antomina Oman and Jonathan Harvey Tidwell. I believe he attended school through the 8th grade at the Wasatch Academy in Mt. Pleasant. At the age of 16, both of his parents died. His father in August 1928, from yellow jaundice, and his mother in November of 1928. He was a member of the LDS church and held the office of a priest, but became inactive after his parents died. At that time, he had to work to make a living and became a sheep herder. He worked for a man by the name of Andy Anderson. They would herd the sheep up to the mountains, to graze during the summer. They would go up around the 4th of July and would stay until fall. Much of the time it was just him and his dog and his horse. He had to protect the sheep from predators and make sure they didn't stray, as they fed on the mountain grass. He was paid $1.00 per day. He told me of a time, that there was a terrible rain and lightening storm on the mountain, and his horse, who was scared, kept backing up against his tent, almost knocking it over. My dad spent most of the night hitting the horse on the butt, through the tent, to make sure it didn't knock the tent down. He was drafted into the army in 1939. He was stationed at Fort Lewis, in Washington state. He was just finishing up his two years of service and had turned in all of the things, and was ready to come home, when the following day, on December 7, 1941, the Japanese invaded Pearl Harbor. He was re-enlisted and spent three more years serving during World War II. He was a supply clerk and was shipped out and sent to Australia and New Guinea. He told me of times when he would sit on the cliffs by the ocean and watch the dog fights between the Japanese and American fighter pilots. Eventually he was shipped stateside and wound up stationed in Kansas. That is where he met my mom. She was a civilian worker on the base there. They were married in November of 1945 in Salt Lake City, UT. He and my mom had three children, Beverly Jean, Craig Lynn, and me, Marie Louise Tidwell. On July 12, 1963, my mom passed away from breast cancer. My dad worked at the main U.S. Post Office, in Salt Lake City, as a mail handler. As a widower, he continued to raise his family and never remarried. He retired in 1974, and passed away on 1 January, 2000. He was 87.

Kenneth Lynn Tidwell was 17 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Kenneth Lynn Tidwell was 27 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945.

Nazi Germany is the common English name for Germany between 1933 and 1945, when Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party (NSDAP) controlled the country through a dictatorship. Under Hitler's rule, Germany was transformed into a totalitarian state that controlled nearly all aspects of life via the Gleichschaltung legal process. The official name of the state was Deutsches Reich until 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich from 1943 to 1945. Nazi Germany is also known as the Third Reich, from German Drittes Reich, meaning "Third Realm" or "Third Empire", the first two being the Holy Roman Empire and the German Empire. The Nazi regime ended after the Allied Powers defeated Germany in May 1945, ending World War II in Europe.
Kenneth Lynn Tidwell was 45 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.

James Warren Jones was an American religious cult leader who initiated and was responsible for a mass suicide and mass murder in Jonestown, Guyana. He considered Jesus Christ as being in compliance with an overarching belief in socialism as the correct social order.

A tanker is a ship designed to transport or store liquids or gases in bulk. Major types of tankship include the oil tanker, the chemical tanker, and gas carrier. Tankers also carry commodities such as vegetable oils, molasses and wine. In the United States Navy and Military Sealift Command, a tanker used to refuel other ships is called an oiler but many other navies use the terms tanker and replenishment tanker.
