Kirk's greatest love was people, and the more the merrier, which love was
reciprocated throughout his life. His passions were working with his hands
including carpentry, plumbing and electrical repairs among all other forms
of building maintenance. All manner of outdoor activities, his friends,
family and cats, were his pleasure.
Cremation took place on March 30, and a memorial service will be scheduled
at a later date.
