Frederick Bayard Kirwin Obituary
Frederick Bayard Kirwin, 99 + years old (almost 100), of Hamilton, NJ, passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 20, 2017.
Born in Coraopolis, PA, he lived most of his life in St. Petersburg Beach, FL. After the passing of the love of his life in 2002, his wife, Roberta Webb Kirwin, he resided with his loving daughter, Christine Kirwin Thibodeau and his son-in-law, Harry Thibodeau, and only grandchildren, Bryan, Gabrielle and Kyle Thibodeau, whom he cherished.
Fred attended the University of Alabama where he played basketball under coach, Bear Bryant. After which, he served in WWII in the Army of the United States of America (1944-1946). Fred was a Corporal in Battery C, 569th Field Artillery Battalion.
After the war, he worked as an engineer for Curtis Wright. Then, he moved to Florida where he worked as district sales manager, salesman and independent contractor for Fuller Brush, Inc. When he retired, he and his wife served and gave everything to the community in several ways.
Mr. Kirwin was an avid bridge player, card/game player and golfer. His passion was walking, especially on Pass-A-Grille Beach, playing Scrabble, doing crosswords, playing basketball, spending endearing time with his family, among various other activities.
He was the most gently, giving, loving, compassionate man, husband, father, Pop-Pop and great Pop-Pop one could ever have in their lives. His smile was contagious, his jokes were the best to laugh at, and his compassion, love and generosity were beyond what anyone which could be blessed. Thanks so much for sharing and teaching us what life and love are about truly!
Predeceased by his wife, Roberts Webb Kirwin; his parents, Roscoe and Esther Kirwin; and his brothers, Richard and Roscoe (Conky) Kirwin. Additionally, he is survived by his beloved daughter, Christine Thibodeau and son-in-law, Harry Thibodeau; and only grandchildren, Bryan (Jenny), Gabrielle (Rob) Dauster and Kyle Thibodeau; and three great-grandchildren, Brady and Sloane Thibodeau and Chase Kirwin Dauster. Fred is also survived by his sons, Frederick Robert Kirwin and Richard James Kirwin (Anne). Along with many other family and friends.
As per Fred's wishes, he was cremated, as was his beloved wife. His ashes will join his wife's in the Gulf of Mexico at Pass-A-Grille Beach, Florida. [His great sense of humor showed when one day he told his daughter, Christine, to just toss them in their pool.]
