He served in the Air Force, and was a member of Ironaton Church of Christ. Mr. Kissic was a gentle loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. His family was the light in his world. He was very proud of his children. He was nicknamed Birddog at his daughter's business (Gina, of Magnolia Place). He was very supportive to his children and grandchildren. He loved to fish and take his boat out for a spin. He also enjoyed playing little pranks when you least expected them. He loved his dogs, especially Peanut, his sidekick. He also loved his other dog Bebe, always taking them for rides in his truck and sleeping in his big recliner. He was a simple man with a strong love for his family. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Grandsons will serve as pallbearers. The family would also like to recognize William and Billy Golden as honorary pallbearers. Talladega Funeral Home will direct the services.
