I Grew up with Kirk, I have so many memories from riding dirt bikes to crawling in the creeks, But one memory That I have never forgotten, When I was around 11 years old I got my first daisy BB gun. And Kirk had a pump gun that was much stronger than mine. So we We’re crazy kids and had this idea that we could have BB gun wars, but we was not allowed to shoot above the neck,( guess what) Kirk shoot my front tooth out, and we fabricated this huge story about me falling on a rock and losing my tooth to my mother. My mom wondered why Kirk was crying harder than I was. We kept that secret for a couple years until the truth finally surfaced. And throughout the years every time I saw Kirk I had to remind him. I would say oh by way Kirk, thanks for shooting my tooth out. He would sometimes say oh I know Frank I shot your tooth out (Before I would say anything). It was seriously a laughing matter for many years. I have hundreds of stories with that guy. Kirk was a very unique individual, he loved to debate and argue over certain theories, You say sky was blue he would say it was light blue, expresses opinions on any kind of topic that interest him. a very kind hearted gentleman and would do anything for anybody. He was a great friend growing up, And He was loved and will be missed dearly.
