My condolences to Kirk's family, but especially to Victoria, whom I worked with at Olsten. My heart goes out to all of you. I didn't know Kirk well, but I knew he was a good man and was loved by his family.

I'm unable to celebrate his life tomorrow, but I will be there in spirit with you, Victoria. Hugs.

So sorry for the your loss. I enjoyed working with Kirk at Macy’s. Although he tried, I never could refold a fitted sheet. He would come in early to drink his chocolate milk and eat his donut. He was a good guy and will be missed.

I met Kirk in Greeley Colorado in 1970 when he was my roommate at UNC. We became close friends right away, spending time in the mountains and sharing homes off campus during college years. I worked with him summers painting houses in Brush, Fort Morgan and Greeley. I was glad he moved to La Crosse, my hometown, in 1986 and we remained close friends meeting for lunch to catch up. He was a great artist and I still have many of his pottery items and art work. What a great loss and a true loyal friend. I will miss him and his sense of humor and the many good memories we share.

My thoughts and prayers to the family. Spent many hours working with Kirk in the cash office at Dayton's. He was our supervisor and we had a great department. Remember the beautiful pottery he made and the stories about Colorado.

So sad about Kirks passing. I grew up with Kirk in Brush and our family and the Shrieners were close friends. Kirk was at our wedding in 1983. We saw each other until we moved to Arizona. We had occasional visits after that. Kirk was a good life long friend. Peace and orayers to the family. Celebrate all the good memories which are abundant.
