UPDATED: Kidd Kraddick, Dead at 53
Update: Richie Tomblin, head golf professional at the New Orleans-based golf club where Kraddick died, had this to say when contacted by the Associated Press:
“He came out and he borrowed my golf clubs and went out to the driving range. It’s kind of a freaky situation. He came out. He practiced a little bit. He hit the ball at the first tee and wasn’t feeling good and after that I didn’t see him. ... I’m still trying to figure it out. I really don’t know what happened. Everyone keeps texting me asking, ‘What’s going on?’ I really don’t know."
Caroline Cradick, Kidd's daughter, also had this to say via Twitter:
"I will never wrap my brain around my fathers passing. Please keep me and my family in your prayers and ask The Lord to watch over my daddy."
David "Kidd" Kraddick, beloved DJ, radio personality, and philanthropist, is dead at the age of 53 years old.
Kraddick was said to be at a golf tournament to raise money for his Kidd's Kids Charity in New Orleans and passed away suddenly.
