Kevin Brice Tideman, 43, of Oak Park, died on March 8, 2020 in Chicago of complications relating to advanced Multiple Sclerosis. Born on April 12, 1976, Kevin suffered from an aggressive form of the disease beginning in his 20s, yet persevered in living longer than doctors thought he would. Gifted in intelligence and wit, Kevin maintained these qualities through the entirety of his life. 

He was preceded in death by his mother, H. Dawn Tideman (nee Tyksinski), longtime employee of Dole Branch Library in Oak Park until her passing on March 10, 2009. He is survived by his father, Henry, and younger siblings Brian and Megan.
