'Twas Mike wrote his own hobbituary?
A great vacuum, Hooverless, now inhabits every pantheon of gentlesharp, living punsters. Shall miss the man who left us, laughing, young at heart. Auf Wiedersehen, Mike! Viele Pause, ohne Arbeit, alter! Bis dann!

I knew Michael Kirk as one of my most interesting cutomers. He came in regularly to AEL&P to pay his bill in advance and to check on how well he was doing on conserving energy. He had something to share no matter the direction of the conversation. His wit and knowledge were a delight.I did not know of his charitable endeavors or contributions to the community but am not surprised. I experienced his gracious and gentlemanly behavior, and looked forward to his visits. The conversations were rich in discussions of history, the value of math,and the delights of the arts in Juneau. What a very special person he was. I will miss him.

Thanks for always sharing in the celebrations of the class of '66. You will always be remembered with a smile and respect. I am grateful to have spent time with you in Seattle...and for finally having you sign my '66 yearbook!! Rest in Peace, Barb Guertin Nielsen

I had known Mike for just over 50 years. Even though I would be sitting in the back of the class, he could still hit me with a piece of chalk, ( in his effort to wake me up.) the vision of him in the winter, peering over the steering wheel of his enormous Army surplus all terrain vehicle .... I think he was the first adult I remember who would wear headphones in public... He would pour his coffee in the morning.... pause.....look up at the class and say: "it's not what you think it is".....every day. It was funny every day. I always respected him most for having the nerve to take out a full page "ad" in the yearbook for his self portrait....looking a little like Einstein, with the quote " Men of Extinction smoke Lord Atom"....thanks Mike.
I could go on....and I think I will.

Yes, we will remember you fondly "Mr. Kirk." Class of '61 adviser and a truly nice guy.

He was my first Algebra teacher. Memorable class and a delightful person. His background is fascinating (and was totally unknown to me--what do kids know?). Glad to have known him, however little I did.

A DD- just to get me through Mr. Kirk's algebra class, a dubious distinction. Mike, you were correct; upper math was the nagging ache throughout my educational "career."

I had him for math, I enjoyed his personality immensely. Great Man....

AS a colleague of Mike's he taught what to do if you wanted to drive an administrator nuts. I was one of his troops during the 1967 uprising at J-D HS. I fled the scene he stayed on and on. When I needed help he was on the spot. Stay naughty! Richard L. Pastega

Mike was always a pleasure to dance with at the Folk dance events. Such a gentleman!
