Our vibrant and jovial Husband and Father, Kenneth Arthur Tiedemann, passed away suddenly on July 10, 2020 due to a cardiac event.
God’s grace brought him into this world on January 11, 1958 to his loving parents, Arthur and Blanche Tiedemann. He was raised in Ridgewood, Queens, NY. He spent beautiful childhood Summers in Sea Cliff, Long Island, NY, with his Sister, Susan and brother, Paul. Ken had a successful career on Wall Street in Banking as a Vice President. He survived two attacks on the World Trade Center – 1993 bombing and September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Ken and Alice had recently permanently relocated to enjoy their retirement in the Compass Pointe Community in Leland, NC, which he considered paradise.
Ken’s greatest gift was his uncanny ability to gather people together. He was truly a shepherd to all flocks big and small, regardless of where they flocked from. Everyone was always welcome.
He had a zest for life like no other. His virtuosity for entertaining fell second only to his unbridled love and devotion to being a loving Husband, Father and Grandpa.
His devotion carried over with great pride in caring for his Mother, Blanche, until her final days. And with the same love, devotion and patience cared for his Mother-in-Law Joan, until his last breath.
His legacy will carry on through his sons, John, Brian and his wife, Alyssa, Matthew and his wife, Carla,who will then pass his legacy through to Ken’s beautiful Grandsons, Ryder, Hunter, Liam and Spencer.
As Ken’s spirit transcends into Heaven, his memory will long live through the devotion of his loving, caring and adoring wife, Alice. Ken and Alice’s unwavering faith in God and dedicated goodwill shall solidify a lifetime of memories to be celebrated for generations to come.
A visitation will be held from 2-3pm on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at Wilmington Funeral Chapel with memorial service to follow at 3pm.
