Kenneth was my youngest cousin. He was always so funny and in a good mood. We were closer in our younger years, and I hate we didn't get to spend more time together when we got older. Kenneth was such a sweetheart and definitely gone too soon. This picture was taken in December of 2016 of me Kenneth and Bodhi. I love you buddy! Uncle David, Aunt Lisa, and Jordan I love you all so much too! I'm sorry y'all are going through this. If you need anything, I'm just a phone call away.

I met Kenneth's mother in 2009 when we were co-workers. We quickly became good friends and it wasn't long before I met Kenneth. After a few years, I moved down the street from the Kirks and we became even closer. The first time I met Kenneth, he was 11 years old. I came to visit and we were listening to music. When I expressed which songs I liked, he made me 2 CDs that to this day I love. However after that night I fell in love with this entire family. I watched him grow up, listened to his sister Jordan try to be little momma, went with Lisa to drop him at school on our way to work, pick him up after football and wrestling,, often I would be at their home or at mine. Our families became so close it was so wonderful! Since I lived down the street, I often would see Kenneth drive by my house and I would wave and say, be good,, don't make me tell your momma on you! He would give that Kenneth smile that no one had. When this child walked into a room, everyone lit up! He is sooooooo special and I thank god for putting the Kirks in my life.

Much Love,

Oh Kenneth. I am incredibly grateful that we could become friends. You were like a brother in law that always looked out and gave advice. I’ll always remember yours mine and Alexis’s long walks from campus the the apartments, and The adventures and laughs we all shared. You will be missed dearly my friend, and I’ll see you later.

We met in elementary school and I remember you and Dalton were always being troublemakers. My mom would come in to teach art to our class and I remember her saying she could never get y’all to sit down. We hung out a lot freshman and sophomore year of high school and your goofy spirit was just the same as back in elementary school. I’ll never forget all the fun times hanging out in your garage with Garrett, Dylan, Noah, Trent, Corinne, Lily, and Kennedy. One of my favorite memories was the night we went back behind your house near the lake and sat around the fire just talking about the most random things. My stomach always hurt from laughing so hard anytime we were all together. Kenneth, thank you for being you for so many people and thank you to his parents for raising such a great guy. Im wishing we would have kept in touch more over the past couples years but I know we will have a great reunion one day! Rest In Peace ❤️

I met Kenneth in the eighth grade when I first moved to High Point. Informally at first through Noah. I had heard so much about him before that, everyone LOVED him. As time went on and I made lasting friendships, I can remember one of my best friends, Corinne telling me she just absolutely adored him. At first I wondered why haha, just so goofy and young. We grew older and I didn’t have that question in my mind anymore. Kenneth cared, about everyone. Such a wonderful guy. So many memories. I had the joy to continue to know him into our adult years. My fiancé, Patrick one of Kenneth’s very close friends. Always took the time to keep in touch. Those men worked hard but I cant tell you how many days Patrick would be taking his boots off just to sit and talk on the phone for hours. (They were worse than me and any of my girlfriends). Patrick and I love the Kirks so much! Thank you for raising such an amazing soul.

Man oh man there are no words to explain how much I will miss your sweet self, I could not have asked for a better friend! I will forever cherish our memories together, our long talks while you drove all over high point, watching documentaries on WWII for hours, you teaching me to drive an automatic (even though I stalled out 4 times at a stoplight and had people cussing and honking at us), fishing and making you take the fish off the hook and then me get mad because you were too “rough” with them, and the best one yet you going with me to get a dog and “surprise” my mom and dad with it knowing they were going to kill me for bringing him home! No matter how crazy, stubborn and complicated I was you were always so calm and knew how to handle me. I am glad we never lost touch and stayed best friends until the end! David and Lisa you had an amazing son who I was so fortunate to have known! Kenneth was the amazing man he was because of you two. Commendable job on both of your babies you have a lot to be proud of. I love you guys and your precious Kenneth will be missed by many!

It’s hard to pick my favorite memory, we’ve had so many. I’ll never forget the way you joked with me, you loved to give me a hard time but, I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I’ll miss the lazy days fishing at the lake... when I’d catch more fish than you, and our long road trips through the states. I’m so happy we got to experience true Nashville together, I couldn’t have asked for a better travel buddy. I was truly lucky to have a best friend like you. Just one phone call and I knew you’d always be there for me. Love you so much Kirk, I’ll see ya later pal!
