I just learned of Kirby's passing. Kirby was one of the finest individuals I've ever known. I had the pleasure of working with him at East Coast Equipment for many years. He was always very dependable and conscientious no matter what the task may have been. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

Dear, sweet Uncle Kirby. Always so kind to me. I will always remember his gentle demeanor and he always seemed to have a stick of Teaberry gum for me. These pictures make me so happy and sad at the same time. I miss all of you and wish I could be with you today. I am heartbroken for your loss.
