We'll always have fond memories of the good times with the Kirbys when we all lived in the same neighborhood raising our families. Our love and deepest sympathy to Jeff and the Kirby family. Rest in peace Jimmy.

We are so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. We will never forget all the years we worked together at Bostrom Seating in Piedmont and the fun we had during those days. We would all look to Jim and his quick wit during those long work days. There many times I would tell others of the funny things "Kirby" did, it was just as funny repeating to folks as it was when he did or said it. Even as lots of the old friends moved on to Honda Mfg. we could count on him for a lift. The story of going to China was just another story to make us laugh. "Kirby" we are going to miss you, you were a gentle person, and we will never forget you. Tonya & David Pike (Bostrom, Honda friends)

I love you so much Uncle Jim. I'll never forget your sense of humor, your quiet intelligence, and your gentle kindness. You were always a wonderful uncle, whether I was 3 or 30. I can't wait to see you again!

To my very close friend Jim. We had the best of times together and I will miss you more than anyone. That time we went on a canoe trip will remain one of the best trips of my life. We went frog gigging, fishing, hunting, and through all of that, we remained friends at the end of the day. Rest in peace brother and we will see each other down the road. Your friend Mick.
