John Tidd, a Realtor with Gardiner Realty Royal LePage in Fredericton, died on May 27. He was 64.
John entered the real estate in 1985 with Gardiner Realty Royal LePage and he was just recognized for 35 years of service in the company and with the Fredericton Real Estate Board. “John valued people and his attention to detail showed in his work,” says Lincoln Thompson, broker/owner of Gardiner Realty Royal LePage. “His customers became an extension of his family and his 35 years of service in Fredericton, Oromocto and CFB Gagetown was very rewarding.”
Thompson says John was “a vivid storyteller who had a smile that was infectious. Everyone loved John. His love of classic cars brought him an arrangement of close friends with ample stories to tell of adventures of the estimated 100 classic cars (he owned) over his lifespan. His love of golfing started at a young age, following in the footsteps of his older brother. A patient teacher, a loving soul, he was a gift to all that he met. John was a kind and gentle soul, which the world needs more of.”
He is survived by his spouse Cynthia Davis; son Barry Tidd (Michelle); daughter Tiffany Tidd (Chris); grandchildren Matthew, Taylor, Ethan, Griffen, Desiree and Teagan; mother Fay; siblings George Tidd (Jaye) of Burlington, Ont., Sharon Guitard of Oromocto, Jim Tidd (Sharon) of Kitchener, Ont. and Mike Tidd (Darlene) of Oromocto; his faithful companion Ruger, who never left his side, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
