I spoke with Mrs. Shirkey today and I was helping her with an order that she had placed with the aafes exchange,and she spoke so highly of Mr.Shirkey to where I had to find him online (with her permission of course)and im very happy that i did. In my life I inspire to meet people like Mr. Shirkey. He seemed like he was a kind man. May your soul rest in peace. Mrs. Carol you're a winner
Bob lived a wonderfully successful life which included heroic military leadership in WW II and Korea, outstanding in the practice of Law, and great family man. I treasure his friendship. Neal Creighton (MG-USA-Ret)
Known lovingly as "The General" to all at the Palace Building in downtown Kansas City, General Shirkey was well loved for his sense of humor and selfless service to the country he loved. No more hills to climb, General. God bless and keep your family. I'm praying for you, Carol.
My husband, Col. Robert Howard-(dec. 10-10-12), served as one of Bob Shirkey's officers. He and Carol were very thoughtful to me and my family.
My condolences to General Shirkey's family. My father, Colonel Robert Howard worked for General Shirkey for many years. I recall two things about him. He gave me his Gold Ring seats at Arrowhead Stadium for my tenth birthday. And when taking a tour of the Boeing facility he was extremely pleased to be the first to sign my new arm cast.
This "old soldier" will live on in the hearts of many who admired him. God keep you in his care, General. Carmella Kovach
What are remarkable life, what a remarkable man. Prayers and condolences to his wife and son. Many years ago, I was his daughter-in-law, Linda.
The General was a true giant among America's greatest generation and a dear friend to many. May God bless Carol, Niles and the rest of his family. Kevin Regan, Cathy Francis and family.
It was a privilege to share a law office with General Shirkey. He went out of his way to administer the oath to my older son as he entered the Army, and when my Dad died, Bob unexpectedly presented my Mother and my family with a display of the unit and his individual insignias, medals and ribbons. He told us stories of Dad's Division landing at Omaha Beach with such great detail it was captivating as though he was there. He was an impeccable spirit, one of a kind, and the world is better because of his devotion and sacrifices. RIP.
I am grateful for the life of Major General Shirkey. Thanks to his service and to the service of others in our armed forces, my family and I have been able to lead our lives in freedom and peace.
Bob made a difference in the lives of many. The world has lost a champion with Bob's passing. Bob's courage was displayed openly and Bob inspired those who knew him.
Thank you for being a good friend and mentor. I will miss you so much.
Condolences to the Shirkey Family. We were all honored and blessed by his service. Harlan Stamper
It takes guts to win wars. Shirkey had them in spades.
General, thank you for being such a wonderful friend and boss and for loving me like family! I will forever cherish in my heart all of our times together and all of the stories that you shared with me along the way. I will always remember how you always wanted to help everyone out and never judged or looked down on anyone that crossed your path. You were a true hero and you will never be forgotten. Carol and family please know that we are always here if you need anything at all. Love, Kristin, Greg & AJ
Condolences to the family of Bob Shirkey, a great soldier, a great lawyer, and a great person.
It was my true honor to know MG Shirkey, as he is, in my opinion, a true American hero...between his courageous service in two wars and his honorable service to the bar of Jackson County and the courts of Missouri, he was a man to be admired. May he rest in peace.
