April 23, 1941 to July 15, 2011

Alan Baird Kidwell, age 70, a trusted tax and business advisor to many successful Honolulu business people, passed away on July 15, 2011.

Alan started his business career as a CPA with Alexander & Grant and then formed the successful tax advisory partnership, Obara and Kidwell, with his friend and longtime business partner Chester Obara. Alan left that partnership in the mid 1990’s to join long time client Duncan MacNaughton where he was a loyal friend and a key senior advisor to Duncan and the entire MacNaughton Group ohana.

Alan was a thoughtful and sharing individual who relished his role of helping others achieve their personal and professional goals, and he truly excelled in that role.

Alan was predeceased by his son, Toby Kidwell, and is survived by his mother Margaret Kidwell, his sister Frances Findley, daughter Michelle Kidwell-Jones and son-in-law Keith Jones, daughter Tiffany Kidwell, son Joshua Kidwell, and grandchildren Crystal, Daniel and Tatem Jones.
