Charles "Chris" Bidle passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 8, 2013. He was 54. Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1958, he was preceded in death by his beloved mother Christine in 1997. Chris graduated from Madison High School in Madison Heights, Michigan and also received a B.S. from the University of Michigan. For the last 23 years, he worked as an automotive executive with American Honda Motor Co. An avid angler, hunter and golfer, Chris loved music, Detroit sports teams and his Michigan Wolverines. More than anything, though, Chris loved spending time with his closest friends and his partner Lori Connor. In Chris's honor, donations can be made to the Madison Community Education Foundation, 1718 Sycamore, Royal Oak, MI 48073.

  1. My condolences to the Bidle Family. May you find comfort during this very difficult time in your lives. The loss of a dear loved one is heartbreaking, but we can find comfort from Gods word. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 tell us that Jehovah is the Father of tender mercies and God of all comfort and he will comfort you during your time of sorrow. John 5:28,29 assures us of a promise made from God that our dear loved ones sleeping in death would hear the voice of his son Jesus and come out of their memorial tombs. God promises to resurrect them back to life on a paradise earth where sickness and death will be no more. (Revelation 21:4- death will be no more; Isaiah 25:8-Jehovah God will swallow up death forever). What a wonderful promise to look forward to seeing our dear loved ones again on a perfect paradise earth. Psalms 37:10,11&29- meek and righteous will possess the earth and live forever upon it.
