Robert "Rob" Scott Kirk

July 2, 1960February 19, 2011

Robert Scott Kirk passed away on February 19, 2011 in Plano, Texas.

Rob was born on July 2, 1960 in Bloomington, Indiana. After graduating from Bloomfield High School, Rob attended Purdue University where he was a proud member of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. After graduating in 1982, he began his career in Phoenix, Arizona with Motorola and continued in the semi-conductor business for 29 years. Upon his death, Rob was the Vice-President of Worldwide Sales for Zoran Corporation.

In 1983, Rob married Jennifer Mack and they began their 27 year adventure together. From Orlando to Morgan Hill to Scottsdale to Plano, they were blessed with countless friends. Rob never met a stranger and was always gracious to all he met.

Throughout his life, his greatest joys were his wife, daughters, family and friends. He loved all sports, especially the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the University of Connecticut Huskies. Yet Rob was always a “home team man.”

He is survived by his wife, Jennifer, his daughters Taylor, 22 and Jordan, 20, his parents, Robert and Nancy of Bloomfield, Indiana and his sisters Dawn Rabon and Desiree Kirk of Austin, Texas.

Services will be held at Prince of Peace Catholic Church, 5100 Plano Parkway West, Plano, Texas on Friday, February 25th at 10:30 am. In lieu of flowers, Rob would want you to make a donation to a charity of your choice.

I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Rob's passing in the latest Pi Kappa Alpha newsletter. I was a “Little Brother” of Rob's back in the early 80's and we had a fantastic time at Purdue as fraternity brothers. We lost contact over the years, but it turns out that we both ended up in Plano, Texas. My deepest condolences to Rob's family and may Rob Rest in Peace.

To Jennifer, Jordan and Taylor. I was so shocked and deeply saddened to hear the sad news of Rob's passing. I don't think I will ever work with such a charasmatic and wonderful human being such as him ever again. He made everyone he met feel special. His sense of humour, warmth, integrity and empathy with others was truly amazing and inspiring. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Jennifer, Jordon and Taylor,
I just recently received the news about Rob from Jamie, I shared a taxi with Rob on his way back from his first meeting with Silica and he told me he was going to start in Slough. A great guy, so positive and full of energy. It was a great loss when he returned to the States but I guess his priorities were right - you all came first.
My thoughts are with you all

Dear Jennifer, Jordan and Taylor,
I had the most wonderful privilege to work for and with Rob during his time with Avnet in the UK. He came around to my home a few times during his stay in the UK and we formed a great friendship. He was the most creative, warm and engaging businessman I have worked with and was a great leader and team builder.
My warmest condolences go out to all of you will remain in my thoughts.

Dear Jennifer, Jordan and Taylor,
I am so sorry for your loss. I worked directly for rob during his time with Avnet, and we shared much time together working with customers and suppliers alike. They all warmed to Rob instantly and I remember creating the 'one vision' campaign as Rob brought the company together during his time here in the UK. A remarkable man who will be missed by many.

I was privileged to be Rob's colleague and friend at Motorola. A very classy, intelligent, warm and funny gentleman who made a lasting impression on those fortunate to know him. Very saddened by his loss and wish his family well at this difficult time.
