Mr. Kirk was a veteran, having served in the United States Army with the 82nd Airborne in Bamberg, Germany. He was an avid coin collector and was a talented artist and writer. He truly never met a stranger. He had a multitude of friends from all walks of life. He loved telling jokes, laughing and having everyone around him laughing along with him. He was a great storyteller and a lover of poetry. He spent many years going back and forth between the family he had in Alabama and the family he had raised in Texas. In his most recent years he was drawn back to Texas to be near the ones who made him the most proud, his children and grandchildren. He will be missed.
