Lorden “LJ” Kidon, 14, Phoenixville

Lorden Kidon, 14, was called home to the Lord, Tuesday, March 26, 2019 in the Phoenixville Hospital after complications from Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy.  The son of Erica Kidon, LJ was born April 7, 2004 in Pottstown, PA.  A 9th grader at the Phoenixville Area High School, LJ attended Phoenixville Area School District since kindergarten and loved his teachers and classmates.  He was an ambassador for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and a member of the Bucks County HOG chapter for Harley Davidsons. 

LJ was known for his smile and putting a smile on other people’s faces.  He loved to sing, dance, play with his dog, hang out with his cousins, play XBOX and the simple things like wearing his pajamas.
